THE RANGE ROVER CLASSIC

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. With the initial concept of a dual purpose 4x4 hatching as early as the 40's, it took two decades until Spen King, Gordon Bashford, and David Bache fully crystalized the idea two decades later. Their concept employed an enclosed aluminum body, long travel coil suspension for overland needs, and a powerful V8 for high speed cruising. This recipe proved immediately popular and the car has been an icon ever since.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This early left-hand drive 1973 (Suffix B) Range Rover Classic (also known as a "vertical grille" Range Rover) came off the production line on August 2, 1973. The car was subsequently exported from the UK and delivered to British Leyland, France on August 27, 1973.

The dedicated off-road specialists at Legacy Overland have treated the early 3-door Range Rover to a comprehensive, show-quality, fame-off restoration. The body, chassis, and underpinning components were thoroughly media blasted, coated and finished with multiple rounds of alternating painting and wet sanding. No effort was spared in creating this authentic, fully documented restoration of a true classic off-roader. The exterior is finished in iconic Bahama Gold paint with the wheels and bumpers finished in the correct shade of silver. The hand-crafted interior has been completely redone with saffron colored velvet cloth seats with classic Palomino trim finishings. The dash has all new gauges and contains a Grundig Emden 8 Classic radio. Under the skin lies the completely rebuilt 3,532cc V8 and 4-speed manual transmission, which is supported by a fully overhauled chassis and suspension system.

This is truly a special vehicle, built to incredibly high standards by a team of enthusiasts who are dedicated to constructing the best product possible. The search is over for the classic Range Rover you have always dreamed of.
