The late 1960’s saw the emergence of the recreational off-road market led Land Rover to come up with a radically new competitor to the Jeep Wagoneer and the Ford Bronco. Land Rover passed on this challenge to Charles Spencer King, under the project title of “The 100 inch Station Wagon”.
It all started when Rover bought a Bronco and noticed the coiled suspension, this boosted the luxury element as gave improved performance and comfort. He also noted the powerful Buick V8. However, Mr. King gave the Range Rover several unique capabilities, improved carburettors that still fed fuel at extreme angles and the infamous started handle for emergencies.
It was launched in 1970 as “a car for all reasons”. The Range Rover was also the first permanent 4x4 to do over 100mph whilst having a towing capacity of 3.5 metric tons, accommodation for five, hydraulic disc brakes to all wheels and the groundbreaking dual-range, permanent four-wheel drive gear box.
A four door version was introduced in 1981, with the two door version phased out in 1994, it was then named the ‘Classic’ to differentiate from the all new P38a Range Rover.The Car
This particular example is a 1992 2 door Range Rover, a classic from the third last year of production. This one owner, left hand drive vehicle is a genuine factory original 2 door Range Rover, having come off the production line at Solihull. The car is rust free and has never had any welding, nor does it need any. The car is a European import from the dry region of Madrid, Spain and under its single stewardship it has spent its entire life on a farm in Toledo, a region in central Spain, far from the coast.
The car is a very usable classic which will only continue to go up in value, as they have done over recent years. The vehicle drives really well and has been well maintained by its single owner, most noticeably under the bonnet. There is scope to convert the car to a right hand drive if required, although I feel it would greatly take away from the originality of this classic vehicle. It is complete with beige interior which is rarely found and also still has the original rear parcel shelf. The headliner does need replacing, although this is a common fault amongst these vehicles. The dashboard and steering wheel are in good condition with all accessories functioning properly just as they rolled off the production line in 1992.Condition
Overall, the car is in fair condition and the body is comprised of entirely original factory fitted panels. However, it has suffered some body dents to the rear quarter and right hand side door panel. Nothing major, and to be expected from a car of this age in such an original condition. The vehicle would benefit from a minor cosmetic body restoration.The car also comes complete with the rarely found 4 light front grill in addition to rear light grills.
The car has original paintwork in a Range Rover classic color, Alpine white, with minor damage to the bodywork at the back and side.
The glass is all original to the vehicle including the tail gate, of which often fail due to corrosion. The glasshouse is scratch and crack free.
The car has a full set of ‘Rostyle’ wheels showing some signs of age with some damage to the front right one. Minor paint marks are present from touch ups that have been done. The vehicle is complete with 4 Tristar Radial tyres, with a spare in the boot. They could do with being restored but there is total potential to recondition them, although they’re running fine as they are.
The seats are in the rarely found beige interior cloth and the bolsters are still firm. The rear bench has experienced moderate usage although all cloth is still intact. Nothing unusual from a car of this age.
The car features the original Range Rover Land Rover two spoke steering wheel.
Drives exceptionally well, no untoward noises, shifts smoothly and is particularly quiet for a VM diesel. Only observation is oil temperature light is on from start-up, likely a broken sensor. Also the speedometer is not operational.Mechanical
The engine runs really well for a 2.5 VM and the clutch is positively light and responsive with a very low biting point. From observation the mechanics and engine have been very well looked after by the single owner and there are many new auxiliary parts under the bonnet. The brake master cylinder looks brand new, all of which make for a lovely drive in a 1992 classic.
The Range Rover has the 5-speed manual box with Reverse and all the gears change freely without interference.Other thoughts
UK registration with a UK Log Book can be arranged at request, although the car currently has a Spanish export registration (Permiso de Circulación) ready for registration in buyers chosen country, either EU or other.
The vehicle has an up-to-date ITV (MOT) stamp certificate,(Permiso de Circulación), and comes complete with a Carfax certificate for proof of previous owners, mileage check and further history etc. I am happy to provide registration documentation and Carfax on request.
