Footnotes

  • 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.

    This early classic three-door example was purchased from Graeme Hunt Ltd in March 2010, by which time it had covered only 46,000 miles. GHL had bought the car in 2007 and used it sparingly for a year while various maintenance tasks and upgrades were carried out. These included fitting a battery cut-out switch; full service and clutch master cylinder; new radio/CD player with four concealed speakers; Wilton over rugs bound in leather; leather door cards with trimmed-in speaker apertures; leather kick-pads to foot well; leather trim panels to the rear, again incorporating speaker apertures; full sheepskin seat covers throughout; and a new headlining. The original Palomino seats are preserved under the sheepskin covers, the rear being unmarked and the passenger seat virtually so, while the driver's seat base has a couple of cracks. The car also benefits from the provision of Sundym glass and power-assisted steering and is said to drive smoothly and quietly .

    Accompanying history consists of the fully stamped service booklet, sundry restoration bills, the car's very first MoT certificate of 1976 and nearly every other one since then. Finished in Bahamas Gold with Biscuit vinyl interior, this sympathetically upgraded early Range Rover is offered with the aforementioned service history, instruction manual, MoT to August 2014 and Swansea V5C registration document
