That would be a rover 90 or 110... A 40" wheelbase on a land rover would be awful!
Anyway... There are LOTs of sub $10k Gs for sale in europe in good condition. I was in Newcastle last year visiting family, and popped into a used car lot to look around. They had a BEAUTIFUL G280 on their lot, I think it was a late '90s model, for 9,000 sterling. It was IMMACULATE! If you're willing to go older, and perhaps a little rougher, $7k should be no problem.
As for us yanks, we gots to deal with HUGE markups on the Gs. I'll stick with my Rovers! Aside from my Benzez I have a LR Disco II, a LR 109 V8, Rover p6 3500, Rover P5, Rover P4 "auntie", and an MGB GT V8... We have a Humber Super Snipe wagon back at the family home near newcastle, along with a BEAUTIFUL P4 that was my great aunts. Some day, I'll ship them over here. No room for now!
You may not find a G series V8 for your dollar, but the 6 cylinder models ain't bad. They're quicker than the Land Rovers, and a heck of a lot quieter...
