Supplied new to Mr P J M Cracken of London SW8 by Berkeley Square Garages Ltd., Albert Embankment London – The dealership attached to BL Headquarters.
The car comes with the original “Passport to Service” – stamped by Berkeley Square Garages, for the PDi and first 1000 mile service.
Also with the vehicle is the original 1973 Owners Handbook – again stamped by Berkeley Square Garages – Interestingly with the corrigenda – stating that spark plugs should be Champion L92Y – NOT L87Y as listed in the data section.
Featured in LRO Magazine (December 2009) as part of “The Magnificent Seven” and was described by Author Kev Mills as “My Favourite – In my opinion the most magnificent of the Magnificent 7”
Also featured in Practical Classics magazine.
The Range Rover itself is in very good all round condition – having benefited from some recent restoration work – which included:
- New inner and outer front wings
- Full repaint
- Re-upholstered seats
- New Carpets
- New headlining
- refurbished door cards
It retains many of the hard to find original features, including the Bonnet mounted mirrors and “Range Rover” badges.
Suitable for somebody looking for a Classic Range Rover to drive and enjoy – fit to show, but not too precious that you would be frightened to use it and enjoy it the way it was designed.
Retains the original drive train – “bullet proof” Land Rover V8 engine and 4 speed gearbox, which whilst a little “agricultural” in today’s terms, it does remind you of bygone days, as you enjoy the roar of the v8 engine !
Values of early 2 door Range Rovers have climbed steadily for the past 10 years, and this would be a lot more fun than money in the bank !
To be sold with a full service, 12 months MOT, and our Silver Warranty.
