1989 Range Rover Overfinch Estate Registration no. G588 BPV Chassis no. to be advised
An outstanding landmark design that almost single-handedly created the booming market in dual-purpose 4x4s, the Range Rover was greeted with universal acclaim on its arrival in 1970 and has remained the class leader, despite ever increasing foreign and domestic competition, ever since. The fact that the original lasted in production for an amazing 24 years before being replaced in 1994 only serves to illustrate the soundness of the original concept. Indeed, the 'old' Range Rover - evocatively renamed Range Rover Classic - did not disappear immediately but continued to be built for another year alongside the new version. This example benefits from the attentions of marque specialists Overfinch, who since the 1970s have been renowned for their Range Rover conversions and upgrades. 'G588 BPV' is fitted with a 5.0-litre Chevrolet engine and automatic transmission, and incorporates Overfinch's improvements to the steering, brakes and suspension. We understand that the work was carried out by Overfinch circa 1990 at a cost of £25,000. The Range Rover was bought by the current titled owner in 2006 and since then has been used as a weekend/shooting car, exactly as its maker intended. While in the vendor's care the vehicle has benefited from approximately £10-12,000-worth of restoration and servicing (see list of works carried out on file) and is described as running very smoothly. The car is offered with sundry invoices, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5C registration document.
