I bought this last year from Australia and imported with a view to keeping it in my collection. I’d looked for many months for a 2 door in this condition but was dispointed or dismayed at the ones for sale in the UK...most of which were rusty or out of my price range so I cast my net further afield. The seller was very knowlageable and answered all my questions and apprehensions patiently and he knew all about Range Rovers and their downsides, he’d intended to keep the car forever and had spent a small fortune getting it to the state it is now. Although it came without documented history the seller knew the car from new. Apparently a farmer friend of his bought the car from new to use on high days and holidays. When he left his wife she assumed he’d taken the car with him. Some years later whilst she was out riding on her 6000 acre farm she came across the car hidden in a remote building. She contacted her friend, they guy I bought the car from, knowing he was a Land Rover /Range Rover affectionardo and gave him first refusal on the car

On receiving the car I changed the speedometer for one reading in MPH rather than the factory fitted KPH type ( original one included in the sale) The original unit read 69016 KM and the replacement read just under 46000 M so the mileage is around 42000, I realise this appears extremely low but is commensurate with the overall condition and the original seller was addiment that car had been used only occasionally so is probably genuine, again I have no proof of this but the alternative “ second time around “ scenario seems less probable.

The car is an Australian built , it’s had a quality paint work re-spayed in it’s original Satin Green. This was due to sun-bleaching of the lacquer and the odd mark. I have photo’s of the original bodywork condition. This was one of only two colours available on this special order model along with all the bells and whistles. It has air con as standard ( not sure if this is working to it’s potential so I suspect it may need re-gassing) Apart from a little surface rust underneath , I haven’t used it enough to warrant any under-body waxoiling or had the desire, but it’s obvious what the underbody condition is rather than it being covered in under-seal, the original paint is still intact under the wheel arches. The body work is magnificent, the paint work is very good throughout . The interor has been re-trimed with new leather and looks fantastic and brand new along with new carpets and headlining. It’s just a nice place to be with the panoramic view over the large bonnet and the smell of new leather. The dash is un-molested with all the factory fitted clocks dials and warning lights working as they should. Under the bonnet looks extreamly good with no leaks or corrosion. All the fluids are clean and on their marks.

You know what they say about these cars...when you’re buying one inspect it thougherly, then when you’ve finished..inspect it again! They have a propensity to rust often in places that are hard to see...in my years of RR ownership I think I’ve had every problem imaginable, not alway expensive but very time consuming. I’m confident this example has no such problems, I’m aware every seller has a similar claim but I’d welcome any inspection..you’ll be impressed at the condition.

It starts first turn and drives like new although having only four speeds is a little tiring when you are used to todays 6 speed cars (Or eight as in my Disco!). That’s how they made them. The brakes have all been restored and the wheels refurbished with 5 brand new tyres. The radio is the original I think, it works but is so quiet you can hardly hear it and the speakers are the ugliest I’ve ever seen, which is possible the only part of the car that requires improvement.
I’ve had numerous CRR’s over the years, and even bought one new in 1991, all of which have needed constant attention but this one is the best I’ve ever had.
This car is hard to fault, it needs nothing and I’m using it as often as I can, on rotation with my other classics. This is a car you can use everyday and in two years will be tax free, and the way they have increased in value recently it’s a worthy investment

I’ve recently sold some property and am now in a position to buy my dream Aston Martin but something has to go to make room in my limited space garage, so I’m offering the RR and my LJ80 for sale, whichever goes first will make ample room for my impending new purchase.

I welcome any inspection or test drive but please no offers, I don’t need to sell but have, I think priced it fairly and you would have to look long and hard to find another comparable car for this price.
