1980 Land Rover Range Rover ClassicThis is an amazing example of an extremly rare 1980 range rover 2 door classic. We discovered this truck last summer stored away in a barn here in Colorado. This truck was restored sometime in the late 90's early 2000's and then stored away with very little use. This truck has all the options that you could ask for back in 1980.
Starting from the front this truck has a vertical english grill with super nice bumpers not rusty or any dings in the bumpers. The hood isstraight and has the flat letters that read RANGE ROVER across the front, he hood prop works fine to hold the hood up. This truck has theorginal 3.5ltr Rover motor. This truck did get a bit of an upgrade somewhere along the line, he intake andcarburetorwere upgraded to an aluminum intake manifold that has no makers marks but does have a part number 1195360 FP and the carb is a GM 2 barrel Q-jet and has an upgraded Air filter.This upgrade works really well on this motor and seems to make it very reliable and gets good gas milage. This truck also has an upgraded Hei ignition and runs very smooth with these upgrades.
Now, rom the factory, his truck has factory power steering and factory power steering fluid cooler allinstalled and work great . I believe this truck has an early steering box ratio. This truck turns very quickly when you move the steering wheel like no other Range Rover Classic I have driven. It also has factory A/C that does work and blows really well but might be due for a recharge on the A/C to make it 100 %. The truck also has dual batteries not factory but nice to have and both batteries are stored in factory locations right behind each head light so it looks factory and clean.
This truck has a 4 speed manual transmission original to thevehicle along with afactoryinstalled manual Overdrive that works amazing . Itturns this truck into an 8speed with 2reverse gears. This truck has a radio and speakers in the factory locations but not sure if it works, adio is missing the face. This truck has heated rear glass and rear wiper, igarette lighter, il temp gauge, oltage gauge, ound clock, il pressure gauge across the dash, actory diff lock light, nd has an after market dash Tac from Sun Tac that works well. Along with all the factory gauges, hey are all intact and working great.
The dash is in great shape, he rest of the interior has been redone with factory replacements. The front and rear seats have both been recovered with factory coverings, he carpet is also a factory replacement. All are in greatcondition and this truck even has a new smell to it. The truck has the hand crank down windows that all work and the rear windows slide and theyalsowork great. The seals around the windows are good but are starting to show their age and may need to be replaced. This truck has 4 original Rostyle rimswith Michelin XM+S244 size 205 R16 Radial. Thistruck also has a spare tire with tire cover, lso has all the factory tools and jack and the cover that covers all the tools on the rear quarter panel. Rear tail gate is in greatcondition and functions well and the upper tail gate also works great and has no rust. This truck has had the rocker panels fixed and was repaired some where down the line but looks solid. There is a set of custom rock sliders that cover the rockers. This truck has also been painted when it was restored in the late 90's so the paint is nice but could use agood buffing. This has got to be one of the nicest examples of a 2door Range Rover in North America thathasn'tbeen messedwith or updated and never been truly restored. This truck is a true 1980 Range Rover that has a birth date of Oct 1979.
