*Suffix A model
*Bodywork said to be good – £12,000/£14,000-restoration has preserved the car's patina
*Engine's running said to be very good


The first-generation Range Rover set a benchmark by which all other SUVs would be judged, and the earliest version of the first-generation model (which remained in production for more than two decades) sums up the design team's ethos. This early model has enjoyed £12,000/£14,000-worth of restoration work that has retained its patina and so is offered with vendor-assessed good bodywork and Tuscan Blue paint, while the glass and wheels/tyres are reported to be very good. Looking at the interior, our vendor reports the Palomino Beige seats and headlining to be excellent and the rest of the interior very good. Engine starting and running is said to be very good and underbonnet presentation excellent: gearbox is vendor-assessed as very good and the remainder of the running gear excellent. There is a good history file with this lot.
