1972 Range Rover Classic

Fantastically original one local owner A-suffix; just 69,000 miles from new; in recent use; extremely sound; original paintwork in Sahara Dust; an important reference vehicle

This early A-Suffix classic would have been the bees-knees when it was bought by the vendor's late father brand new in 1972 from Westgate Motors in Gloucester. Apparently he had a particularly good day at market and walked across the road and bought it on the spot! Used for high days and holidays, it has remained completely unmolested with the exception of an LPG installation.

It lived on the farm in Worcestershire all of its life and has always been kept in running and driving condition, as indeed it is today.

It must be one of the few left with the original front seats - the driver's squab showing some signs of wear and only a very minor tear on the passenger squab. The instrumentation is original and the odometer shows just 69,000 miles.

The paintwork shows a few signs of distress, as it has every right to do after 48 years, but some careful conservation would transform it and we are told it is the original applied in Solihull.

Other than a ding in the driver's door - possibly from a gate on the farm, the panel work is remarkably straight and given that it has been so little used and in single ownership from new, it represents a useful reference car for those restoring one of these iconic machines.

It comes with an old style logbook and one old MOT, but nothing else in the way of paperwork. One look at the vehicle, with is history in mind, leaves little doubt that this is indeed a rare find and offers a fabulous opportunity for sympathetic conservation or a concours restoration to make the best of the best...
