History of the Range Rover

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

It’s with much anticipation that we have the privilege to bring to market a late model 1989 Spanish market Range Rover two-door V8 3.9 EFI. There is a certain charm, character, and allure of a basic agriculturally specified 2 Door fitted with a characterful and soulful V8 engine. I find they just make you smile, and it’s hard to not. This vehicle was first registered on the 10th July 1989 in Barcelona, hence the ‘B’ Registration plate. The previous Spanish owner bought the car in 1993 and kept it until we bought it in early 2021, a rare two-door vehicle in exceptional condition. The last service stamp is in 2015, so the vehicle hasn’t been used that much in recent years, however, its last vehicle inspection (ITV) was in June 2020, running out in July 2021.  It’s a well-preserved vehicle, it’s been enthusiastically owned and for a large proportion of its life.

The car has been fitted with a long-range fuel tank fitted in the boot, masterfully trimmed in teddy bear valour. It’s a very smart installation and has its benefits on those long-range road trips. 

The car will be serviced again preceding the sale.

AN UPDATE FROM THE TEAM
 

We are here and open for business

These are truly extraordinary times. Although we’re not as raring to go as usual, we still remain open, with shipping line's continuing to run, although at a reduced frequency. 

  Keeping our distance 

 Fortunately we are a small team and geographically spread. The team are largely working from home with the exception of our independent mechanics who are able to continue to work safely. 

 What does this mean for YOU

 We continue to operate and send out vehicles globally on a monthly basis. Our ability to prepare a vehicle to a client's specification is somewhat stifled. Although our mechanics are doing their very best, to meet smaller requests.

  Fast Moving Cars 

 AKA lockdown project. 

We’ve been working hard over recent months to gather a collection of "FAST MOVING CARS". These are rolling projects, although not perfect, they are ideal for first time importers giving a taste of what English classics have to offer.  

  Fighting fit in no time

 We are confident that we will come through this stronger and we wish safety and good health to everyone and their families. 

We are only a call, email or text away so please don’t hesitate.
