Details Specification

In June 1970, the Range Rover was introduced to the public, to much critical acclaim. It appeared that Rover had succeeded in their goal of a car equally capable both on and off road - arguably, better than any four-wheel drive vehicle of its era in both environments. With a top speed of 95mph and acceleration from a standstill to 60mph in less than 15 seconds, performance was stated as being better than many family saloon cars of its era. Off-road performance was good, owing to its long suspension travel and high ground clearance. Originally, the Range Rover was fitted with a detuned 135hp version of the Buick-derived Rover V8 engine as fitted to the model offered here today. The 3,528cc engine was increased to a displacement of 3,947cc for the 1990 model year, and 4,197cc in 1992. The car offered here today is the Range Rover Classic EFI and is clearly being offered for restoration, however it is a great base from which to mildly restore. Showing a believed-genuine, but not warranted 13,974 miles on the odometer, it is deeply original and understood to be complete. First registered in the UK in May 1988, this car was later exported in November 2005 to Cyprus and it is with Cypriot papers that it is now offered.  The engine turns and is certainly not seized, however, no heroic attempts have been made in some time to try and truly get it running.  Having formed part of an eclectic collection belonging to a delightfully eccentric French anglophile, it has been stored in a dry barn/warehouse alongside predominantly British siblings such as Jaguars, other Jensens and Range Rovers. It is considered that this is one of the milder restoration requirements of the Lots offered here today.  A little time, a little know-how and very little expenditure should see this car back on the road once again...
