1972 100% original unmolested suffix A LHD Range Rover For Sale

100% original state , un-restored but in incredible condition for its age, in the iconic bahama gold finish with original PVC (although partially cracked) palomino seats, this original left -hand drive, 1972 Range Rover Suffix A is the perfect occasion to grab possibly to get one of the very last unmolested very early Range Rovers . Presented in the very original condition, this early Suffix A (one single owner from new) has grown into a genuine collectors’ car and leads the charge in both rarity and price.

ORIGINS: RANGE ROVER CLASSIC
With its iconic boxy shape, the original first-generation Range Rover Classic became the British Motoring Industries proudest production, with a long production run of 1970 - 1996. A car with an international appeal, attracting buyers from across the globe including diverse markets from Japan, Canada and Australia and USA.

Covering some many bases the Range Rover Classic was known to be a “four-in-one” car; luxury, performance, estate and cross country. Initially only available in a 2-door body style until 1981, before the release of the 4-door model, the Range Rover packed in a 3.5 litre V8 under the bonnet running Zenith-Stromberg CD2S carbs allowing the SUV to run at extreme changing attitudes without fault. All pulled along by a 4-speed gearbox and lockable centre differential only instead of the originally released Salisbury Power-Lok lockable limited-slip diff which was phased out December 1970.

HISTORY
the very first range rover to come and be registered in Austria ,it was registered there on March 13, 1972 and delivered to a Mr Schwarz . (a meticulous Austrian pharmacist). The Range Rover was well kept and loved by Schwarz who kept it registered and road worthy for virtually 40 years, always storing it in his heated garage in the center of Vienna. He used it regularly until I bought it from him in 2011, when he was well into his 90’.
Mr. Schwarz managed to maintain tall original documents , brochures etc , as well as the original owner’s manual and a 'Rover Passport to Service' with a consistent service stamped ‘Maintenance Schedule’ starting from 1972 to 2010.

LOCATION OF VEHICLE
The vehicle is presently imported and stored in Lugano, Switzerland. However it was never exported out of the EU retains also the original Austrian documents which makes it re-importable to the EU as well as Switzerland

EXTERIOR: PAINT AND FIXINGS
Although subjected to some minor repairs in some areas the Range Rover still boasts the original Bahama gold paint finish with no major imperfections. All badges, bumpers and exteriors trim are presented in clean and damage free condition.

EXTERIOR: WHEELS
Sitting on original Rostyle rollers, displayed in clean and wear-free condition, finished in period correct silver paint matching front and free bumpers. Each corner features plenty of tread with miles left in them.

INTERIOR: SEATS AND TRIM
Vehicle retains the original black ashtray, passenger grab handle plain shape aligned with the rest of the fascia, as well as the other special characteristics of the very early suffix A versions ( - details above).
The PVC palomino seats are still 100% original however they have few cracks and lining will need to be redone they will need to be covered with sheepskin. The bolsters and padding are still firm and plump meeting the level of luxury expected from a factory original 1970’s Range Rover Classic. An additional sets of seat (and rear bench) from another 2 door range rover have been bought as spares and are available with the vehicle in case the current seat want to be kept original.

INTERIOR: DASH AND INSTRUMENTS
Retaining original Jaeger instruments all in perfect working condition. The dashboard remains crack free with clean unmisted dials.
MECHANICALS: THE DRIVE
The 3.5-litre V8 roars down the road pulled along by a firm and precise 4-speed transmission. Under the bonnet, you’ll find a presentable engine bay with no odd noises or other issues to note. The Range Rovers offers a comfortable and original drive with the adding option of storming across the nearest farmland.

If you are interested in taking up this rare opportunity to own the most iconic 4X4 mother of all SUV please inquire by phone or email. I will happy to welcome any serious buyers to my premises to view the car in its current state and to view our facilities.
