Lot 224 - 1991 Range Rover Vogue Classic
|Odometer reading||114,364 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,000|
The first generation Range Rover was initially not designed as a luxury 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. It 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 example is presented in good order throughout with a Cairngorm Brown exterior and matching 'Teddy Bear' interior. Owned by the vendor for the last two/three years, some works have taken place during this time and the vehicle has been used regularly. We are also informed (by letter) that, up to 2004, Lakeland Land Rover have performed its full servicing requirements although the history is not present. A further 95,000 mile service took place in 2007 by Brooklyn 4x4. An extremely serviceable example competitively priced.
*Guide Price £5,000-£8,000.
