Lot 131 - 1993 Range Rover LSE
|Odometer reading||99,800 miles|
|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
The first generation Range Rover was produced between 1970 and 1996 and 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 original 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. Air suspension was available from 1992 at the same time the LSE (Long wheel base) model was introduced creating additional eight inches legroom for the passengers.
This Range Rover LSE was originally registered on 20th November 1993 and is presented in superb condition throughout. A comprehensive service history accompanies L90 AJB and benefits from a stainless steel exhaust. A LPG system was fitted last year. We are advised by the vendor she drives well and the air suspension operates correctly. The original service books are together with the spare keys and drivers handbook. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 13th August 2016; classic shape Range Rovers have become highly sought-after, this excellent example could well prove to be a wise investment.
