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 it gave improved performance and comfort. He also noted the powerful Buick V8. However, Mr. King gave the Range Rover several unique capabilities, improved carburetors that still fed fuel at extreme angles and the infamous starter 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 gearbox.

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 1990 Range Rover 2 Door was delivered by Austin Rover Espana S.A to Madrid and first registered on 08/03/1990. There is only one recorded change of owner on the vehicle documentation on 14/09/2000. The second owner has since kept the vehicle up until September 2019. Where the vehicle was then repatriated by ourselves back to the UK. The vehicle benefits from the later 2.5 iterations of the turbo-diesel VM engine which adds durability, better cooling, and increased power. The vehicle was originally delivered from the factory in Eastnor Green and has received a comprehensive exterior body renovation in the original factory paint scheme of Land Rover Eastnor Green LRC419.

The vehicle is mechanically and structurally sound and represents a fantastic opportunity to enter the world of two-door range rovers. In essence, this is your two-door Range Rover starter kit.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW

Mechanically the vehicle is in good condition, there is some mild evidence of perishing on some bushings. However, nothing needs eminent attention.

STRUCTURAL

Structurally the chassis is in excellent condition. The outriggers and rear cross member are all in great condition, as all the sills. Both axles are in incredibly original condition. The vehicle has been under seal by ourselves in order to protect the frame and axles from corrosion. However, we can provide pictures of the vehicle's underbody prior to the underseal being carried out, for peace of mind.

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.
