|Odometer reading||135,000 miles|

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 long wheelbase Classic Vogue was purchased by the vendor in 2008 and he had some restoration work carried out to bring it back to excellent condition, this included replacing the rear floor, rear wheel arches and rear cross member. The air suspension was removed and coil springs fitted, a stainless steel exhaust system replaced the original. In 2003, it was fitted with an LPG autogas system which is currently disconnected, the vendor informs us that the item removed from the engine is supplied with the car and just requires refitting to make the system work. This Classic Vogue LSE is finished in black with grey leather interior and is supplied with a V5C registration document, a MoT test certificate which expires in February 2015, LPG conversion certificates, old MoT test certificates and invoices. It is offered at no reserve and could well prove to be a wise investment with the changes in the UK climate.
