  • 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 (145km/h) 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.

    A right-hand drive model, this late Range Rover Classic was imported from Japan in October 2014 and is described by the vendor - its owner since March 2015 - as corrosion free. Refurbished over the last year or so, the car benefits from a replacement rear differential, new track rod ends, new catalytic converter, new ignition coil, new battery, complete new factory walnut trim, and a full Dinitrol anti-corrosion treatment. Upgrades include a tubular stainless steel exhaust manifold, new stainless big-bore exhaust system, and new bi-xenon headlights. Most of the foregoing works were undertaken by acknowledged marque specialists, Kingsley Cars. Related bills are on file, and the 'M895 TUJ' also comes with a V5C registration document and MoT to July 2017. We are advised that an engine compression test gave 'as new' figures, and that the car performs well on the road.
