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.
Originally registered on 1st August 1987, this automatic Range Rover has been owned by the vendor since 1989 and presents in excellent condition. The Cassis Red paintwork is virtually unmarked as is the Osprey Grey velour trim, E881DRY is supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate. Classic shape Range Rovers are commanding strong interest of late, this low mileage superb example represents excellent value in today's market place given the estimate.
