Footnotes

  • Registered to the first owner for 34 years, this outstanding 'Classic' Range Rover was dry stored from 1982 to 2013 when it was purchased by the current (second) owner, who then re-commissioned the vehicle using genuine Land Rover parts. Un-restored and exceptionally original, 'BOM 347V' presents as a virtually new car today. The spare wheel and tyre has never been used, neither has the complete and intact tool kit, and the car even sits on its original tyres. The Arctic White paintwork is unmarked; the underside still carries its original factory-applied Waxoyl; and the factory-applied PDI stickers and markings are still in place. The 'Rangie' also carries several of its original paper stickers, applied during the manufacturing process, suggesting that it has seen very little rain in its 36 years and indicating how well it was stored. It has never been fitted with a tow bar, unlike so many of its fellows, and probably has never been off road.

    The under-bonnet area is likewise original, un-restored and in virtually 'as new' condition, complete with all of its factory-applied PDI stickers and customer advice notices. Similarly, the tan velour interior appears brand new and factory fresh, with no signs of any wear whatsoever. The boot is fitted with a soundproofing mat that sits on top of a stainless steel cover on the floor. When this area was vacuumed, lots of metal swarf was discovered where the cover had been drilled at the factory, suggesting the car had never been cleaned in that area. 'BOM 437V' still retains its original tax disc holder and rear window sticker, and comes with its original 'Passport to Service' book with one stamp applied by Henlys of London, the supplying dealer. With only 5,635 miles showing on the odometer, this must be the most original and lowest mileage two-door Range Rover to come to the market in decades. Quite exceptional and a real collector's piece, it is offered with MoT to May 2016.
