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 idea of a more road-biased 4x4 had been around since the Land Rover's arrival in the late 1940s, but it would be some two decades before the concept crystallised in what would end up as the Range Rover. Spen King and Gordon Bashford were responsible for the initial conception, with final detailing entrusted to David Bache. A separate, Land Rover type chassis was employed to carry the enclosed aluminium body, while long-travel coil-sprung suspension ensured that the ride would be more saloon car than utility. Rover already possessed an ideal power unit in the form of its 3.5-litre light alloy V8. The Range Rover was greeted enthusiastically by both press and public on its arrival in 1970, offering comfortable cruising at 90mph and a greater off-road capability than most of its customers would ever need. 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 well-equipped, automatic transmission Vogue model was purchased by the vendor from his company in 2014 and has always been maintained to the highest standard while in his care. Bills on file from West Hoathly Garage cover servicing for the period 2010-2015, while other works carried out include fitting a new upper tailgate, repainting the bonnet and replacing the distributor. The invoices total £8,388. Currently displaying a total of only 44,000 miles on the odometer, the car is described as in generally good condition, the engine running very well. Accompanying paperwork consists of the aforementioned service bills, current MoT and a V5C document. A MoMo walnut-rimmed steering wheel is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
