The first generation Range Rover was produced between 1970 and 1996. The original car was not designed as a luxury-type 4x4; while certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models, the early Range Rovers had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards designed to be washed down with a hose. Features such as power assisted steering, carpeted floors; air conditioning, cloth/leather seats, and wooden interior trim were fitted later. The Range Rover was a body-on-frame design with a box section ladder type chassis similar to contemporary Land Rovers. The Range Rover utilised coil springs as opposed to leaf springs, permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel disc brakes and was originally powered by the Rover V8 engine.
This Range Rover Vogue SE automatic was first registered on 21st February 1990. In August 2010 the car was registered as a Category C insurance loss after accident damage to the offside front wing (photos are available). The Range Rover has been professionally repaired and inspected by VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency). Finished in black with grey leather trim, this Vogue SE presents in excellent order. The 3947cc engine runs quietly and smoothly and we are advised she drives very well. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate; classic shape Range Rover values have increased dramatically of late and given this cars' history, it is very realistically estimated.
