      Galvanised & Powder Coated Chassis

      As featured in LRO – March 2012

      Unfortunately, the classic 2 door Range Rover was never factory built with a Diesel engine. What we have here, is perhaps what SHOULD have been built, but never was. A stunning 2 door Range Rover with the bullet proof 200 TDi Diesel engine, and 5 speed gearbox.

      This Range Rover has been the subject of an extensive “ground up” restoration, and has had thousands of pounds spent making sure that everything works correctly.

      Below is a brief list of the work carried out, but anyone who has completed a similar restoration will appreciate it is impossible to list every last job:

      • Original chassis – Galvanised and powder coated
      • 200 TDi Diesel engine – 50,000 miles from new
      • New timing belt fitted
      • LT77 5 speed gearbox – Fully reconditioned
      • New clutch
      • New exhaust
      • New top and bottom tailgate
      • Original bonnet mounted mirrors
      • New bumpers
      • New front wings
      • Axles blasted painted and rebuilt with new bearings and seals
      • New brake pipes throughout
      • New flexible brake lines
      • New brake discs and pads
      • New tyres
      • New battery
      • New swivel housings and seals
      • New headlining
      • Full respray in Tuscan Blue (cost thousands)

      As good as this Range Rover looks, the ultimate experience is gained in the driving seat.

      Over the years, I have seen and driven many Land Rovers and Range Rovers that have had “An engine conversion”, and to be honest, none of them ever seem to be 100% “right”

      This particular Range Rover benefits from a professional rebuild which “included” an engine and gearbox transplant. Because of this – you would think that the vehicle was built this way – no nasty wiring, and it drives perfectly.

      Previous owner reports fuel economy of 40mpg !

      If you are looking for a “Useable” Classic Range Rover – then this may fit the bill.

      Good enough to show – reliable enough to use – You choose !

      To be sold fully serviced with 12 months MOT & 3 months warranty.
