1985 Range Rover Classic
Owned since 2002 within a private collection; early four door 3.5 petrol with LPG capability; runs and drives but only driven sparingly in recent times so will need some recommissioning
First registered in October 1985, this five door Range Rover Classic has been languishing indoors, as part of a large private collection of motoring goodies. What it really needs is a green lane, a few stickers, a winch and numerous jerry cans on the roof, although maybe a little recommissioning first.
Unfortunately, little is known about the early life of C288 NHJ. As far as the paperwork is concerned, the previous owner acquired the car in 2000 and soon after that in 2002, it passed to our vendor, who drove it occasionally over the course of the next few years but it has mainly been static amongst his collection since the last recorded MOT in 2003. Having seven recorded previous keepers and showing just over 91,000 miles, it has certainly been around the block, although you would not necessarily think it at first glance.
Of course, it has some wear here and there, but generally the body and chassis have not a lot to worry about. Able to be run on petrol and LPG, it hides a doughnut shaped gas tank in the rear, not to mention the Camel trophy style additions such as the big roof rack, spot lights, double bull bar with chequer plate detail, sump guard and the all important snorkel. Apart from the drivers seat, which may need some attention, the upholstery is pretty respectable too and there is a modern Eisenbacher heater fitted for those cold mornings.
Running, stopping and driving, this would be a magnificent machine to add to a collection or enjoy some adventures, but in the early days of ownership, one might need a little mechanical know how to get it back on the road after a while in storage.
