Range Rover P38a Pre Production M247 CVC Chassis 130! 4.0 V8 For Sale (1994)
If you are looking at this advert you will know what a rare and special Range Rover this is!
Chassis no 130 is a 4.0 V8 SE manual in Biarritz blue with dark grey leather interior.
V5 document in my name and up to date.
Production 38a ‘Number One’, at the BMIHT museum, has a VIN of 00190
A hand-stamped build tag was fitted to each unregistered prototype vehicle in the factory. The tags are riveted to the slam panel in front of the battery and identifies a vehicle’s particular role in the prototype programme.
For six weeks Land Rover used Cliveden House in Berkshire for the 38a Range Rover’s international press launch. During this period journalists were invited to experience the new Range Rover and associate it with the opulent luxury of Cliveden. Each morning a gleaming batch of 20 CVC press cars, representing the range of models (2.5 DT; 2.5 DSE; 4.0 SE; and 4.6 HSE), was lined-up in front of Cliveden for inspection and test drives. Throughout the day, press cars were returned to a workshop in the grounds of the house for any repairs and cleaning.
I bought M247 CVC from Julian Lamb who was the founder of the CVC Register http://www.cvcregister.co.uk/range-rover/38a/
It had just run out of MOT when purchased over 2 years ago and I set about returning the suspension back to standard from a coil spring conversion.
Four new suspension airbags were fitted and that was as far as I got due to the fact that I bought another CVC Range Rover!
The 4.0 V8 engine starts well and sounds good and the gearbox and clutch feel fine.
Sold through Marshall Land Rover to its second owner with Land Rover history to 70,000 miles.
Full owner history from new showing Land Rover as the first owner
This will be a great project for some one to finish off and take to shows or just use and enjoy!
