|Odometer reading||148,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,256|
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 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 LSE specification example has a strong history to its name, all contained within the file. With just four previous owners, it presents in good order throughout. In 2011, it underwent a full rear brake disc and pad replacement with a new front calliper. The following year, track rod ends and front shock absorbers were replaced. In fact in recent years, much care and investment has been undertaken through marque specialists, Dingocroft of High Wycombe. In classic Range Rover burgundy with a contrasting tan interior, this example drives well and with no known faults, has a recent MoT test certificate and service. A well-sorted Classic.
