In the world of SUVs, Range Rover is the gold standard.
An all-weather, tackle any terrain machine and arguably the first off-road fashion accessory, early Range Rovers paved the way for this globetrotter’s modern popularity.
A Paris to Dakar Rally winner and famously quoted by Harry’s Garage as being “perfect to throw your dead sheep into” fitted with a beefy 135 horsepower Rover V8, long travel suspension for stability and exceptional axle articulation, 4 speed high-low ratio gearbox and boasting spectacular 360° elevated views of the world around you, pre-1995 Range Rovers were and are still unrivalled on our roads today.
Exceptional early Range Rovers now command as much as today’s most sophisticated 4X4s with values and interest continuing to skyrocket internationally. The lure of the Great Outdoors will always beckon the adventurous and there is no better way to experience it than with a Classic Range Rover.
Available here is a stunning Australian delivered and limited production 1983 Range Rover High Line, travelled just 150,000 kilometres from new.
Sold new to Adelaide on the 11th of November 1983 this exceptionally well maintained car was ordered in Nevada Gold and optioned with the Torque flight 3-speed automatic transmission, American Walnut door cappings, alloy wheels, driver and passenger arm-wrests and air-conditioning.
Retaining many of its correct and original parts from the tail gate with correct Triple X glass, the original front bar with manual engine crank cut-out (only for the brave), the ingenious 12 screw Land Rover stamped tail lights and original alloys to the heat shield beneath the bonnet this Range Rover is something quite unique.
The height of refinement in 1983, this Range Rover’s interior trim can only be described as being in excellent condition. From the original Tan velour seats still firm to the touch with no stitch out of place to the original steering wheel, switch gear, crystal clear instruments and ageless dash this is one of the finest examples we’ve seen.
Recently serviced and travelling minimal kilometres since as well as being fitted with new Dunlop GrandTrak tryes, the way this Range Rover drives and handles feels solid and incredibly sure-footed, perfectly prepped to tackle any terrain.
Accompanied by its original books including the service manual with delivery information, the original sales brochure rarely seen, a detailed service receipts portfolio and both Land Rover keys this Range Rover is quite exceptional and a real collector's piece.
Australian delivered, very original, winner of the 2012 ‘Best In Class’ award for the Land Rover Club and excellently well prepared, as values and demand increase globally for early Range Rovers, this exceptional car will not be available for long.
