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

This 1992 Range Rover 2 Door was delivered by Austin Rover Espana S.A to Madrid and first registered on 11th February 1992. The vehicle remained under the stewardship of its first owner all the way up until March 2020. It has since been repatriated back to England. Structurally the vehicle is excellent, with one of the most preserved chassis we have seen in a long time. A true result of the vehicle residing all its life in the City of Cáceres in Spain's Extremadura region. Located far south on the Spanish Peninsula near the Portuguese border, it’s known for its temperate climate.

Paint

The Range Rover has been repainted in recent years and there is signs of fading on the roof and centre of the bonnet. Overall the vehicle it’s presentable and would make a great usable 2 Door Range Rover Classic.

Interior

The front seat coverings are in good condition, however the foam beneath is worn and  would benefit from replacement to give the seat better padding and support. The important palomino plastic panels are still in place, and present in very good condition. There is a slight rip in the fabric covering on the rear bench, and a slight seem split on the upper driver seat back above the seat lever.

The door cards have been replaced with new vinyl. The dashboard presents in good condition. There is only one auxiliary dashboard hole that's been made on the left hand side of the drive steering wheel. The centre console is in good condition, and retains most of its rigidity. Finally the rear cargo area also retains its original parcel shelf, spare wheel and wheel cover. The vehicle also benefits from a recently replaced headliner.

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.
