Introduced in 1970 the Range Rover Classic was the first generation Range Rover produced by Land Rover. The first Range Rover came with a 135 Ps (101 kW) version of the Rover V8 petrol engine. Our car also has that lovely 8-cylinder carburettor block. In contrast to the norm with current Range Rovers, this one has a manual 5-speed gearbox. It also is the then top of the range Vogue model. The car was initially registered in Modena in Italy in 1985. Since 2008 it has Dutch papers and remained in the same hands for the last 12 years. As it has never been fully restored it has retained many original features. Thanks to diligent maintenance the car drives and shifts gear well. In 2019 the air-conditioning unit was replaced together with re-shedding its boots. There is a reason why such good care was taken of the mechanics. The previous owner had intended to take the car on a long African rally. Unforeseen circumstances prevented this plan from coming to fruition. The however in the meantime the car had already been prepared to withstand this heavy test of endurance. Apart from some signs of everyday use, the paintwork is neat. The bodywork and chassis are completely rust-free. The interior appears to be splendidly authentic showing the correct amount of patina. Although not earth-shattering at first impression, this Range Rover still possess a nowadays very rare parcel shelf! It comes with extensive documentation including the original Classic Range Rover booklets and an Italian A.S.I. certificate. It also has various luxury items such as air-conditioning and electric windows. This first and best, and by the way only authentic, SUV is ready to go where ever you want.
