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. 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.

    Ever since its arrival, the Range Rover has attracted the attention of specialist firms offering upgrades and conversions. The stretch limousine offered here is the work of one of the best known, Townley Cross Country Vehicles Ltd, which in its day was responsible for converting several hundred, many of them tailored to the specific requirements of wealthy Middle Eastern clients. Taking nine months to build, this example was originally commissioned by the Sultan of Brunei for his younger brother, Prince Jefri, and reputedly cost around £135,000. Townley stretched the chassis and body by 40", incorporating two additional fixed Range Rover doors in the centre and a roof raised by 8". They also installed a laminated sunroof together with darkened windows and a one-piece opening tailgate. Interior features include a full electric centre division with glass panel; three rear seats (two electrically operated); full air conditioning; stereo/CD player and two remote control 8" television monitors with VHS recorder. The exterior was painted in Rolls-Royce Masons Black and the interior trimmed in black-piped Oxblood Connolly hide with Wilton carpeting and burr walnut embellishment. In June 2000 'L23 PWT' enjoyed its own '15 minutes of fame' when it was used to ferry World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Mike Tyson around Glasgow when he fought at Hampden Park (press cuttings on file). At that time is was reported that the car had covered 10,000 miles from new and was being offered for sale by the Glasgow Car Company. At receipt on file dated November 2001 records the purchaser (from Waterside Classics) as one Tom Shanks of Netherley, Stonehaven. The vehicle passed the current owner in Denmark in January 2008. Accompanying documentation consists of copies of Townley specification sheets, warranty agreements, expired MoT (2008) and Danish registration papers.
