Lot 310 - 1991 Range Rover Vogue Classic (3.9 litre)
|Sold - £4,000
The first generation Range Rover was produced between 1970 and 1996. The original car was not designed as a luxury 4x4; while certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models, the early models 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 classic shape Range Rover has only had two previous registered keepers and is in excellent order throughout. The red paintwork is unmarked and the grey cloth trim in very good order with little sign of wear. Clearly this is a much loved and cherished example and we are advised she is as good mechanically as the cosmetics suggest. Supplied with a V5 registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 2nd October 2015 and benefitting from front nudge bars, side steps and a tow bar, this automatic Range Rover is an ideal vehicle for the rapidly approaching winter months.
