1985 Range Rover Classic Two-Door

Later 300TDi engine fitted; R380 5-speed manual gearbox; new shocks and springs; wide wheels; recently imported from the sunny South of France; very eye-catching in Warwick Green with green-tinted glass

When the four-door version of the Range Rover finally came out in 1981, it proved so popular with UK buyers that the two-door version was discontinued in 1984. However, foreign markets continued to appreciate the original design and the two-door remained available in LHD until the second generation P38A came out in 1994.

Dating from January 1985, this Range Rover RR200 two-door has spent all its life in the sunny South of France, hence the good state of preservation today – the underside looks very smart indeed. At some point it has been fitted with a later 300TDi turbodiesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual R380 gearbox.

Although there are no invoices with the vehicle, we are told that it has also recently had new headlights and indicator assemblies, new suspension springs and shock absorbers and a new battery. The original Rostyle steel wheels have also been professionally banded/widened to fit bigger tyres which give it a most purposeful stance.

Finished in the 1980s shade of Warwick Green with green-tinted glass, it has been backdated slightly with earlier steel bumpers. A modern CD player has also been discreetly fitted under the dash. Currently showing some 173,075km on the clock (107,500 miles), it was imported to the UK last year, flying through its MOT in December 2020 with no advisories recorded and has only covered around 4,000km since (2,500 miles).

Supplied with a V5C and a copy of its most recent French logbook when it was resident in the Prefecture de la Haute Garonne, it has been starting promptly and running well as we have moved it around on site. A particularly eye-catching example with an exceptionally sound chassis, it looks like a handy bit of kit and no doubt has at least another 35 years of useful life ahead of it.
