In the world of SUVs, Range Rover is the gold standard and if you’re looking for a simple, classic design that has aged tastefully and covets a global cult following manufacturers could only wish for – a two-door is the perfect proposition.
There are three key reasons to collect/own a classic Range Rover.
1. The Range Rover was the first car to win the Paris-Dakar Rally.
2. It’s spartan, practical and timeless design was good enough to be exhibited permanently in the Louvre as a leading edge example of industrial design.
3. The construction and sale of the Range Rover began in 1970, and it was sold in exactly the same condition and appearance as the 1966 prototype through to 1994. Its basic design remained largely unchanged for 28 years, a uniqueness within the automotive industry.
An all-weather, tackle any terrain squire the Range Rover features a light weight all-aluminium 135 horsepower 3.5 litre V8 giving balanced and smooth power delivery, an LT95 ‘long stick’ combined gearbox that gives that mechanical “click”, “click” gearshift feel, power steering as standard from 1980 models onwards, iconic Silver steel alloys, long travel suspension for stability and exceptional axle articulation and spectacular elevated 360° views of the outside world now synonymous with the car along with its metal vertical-slatted front grille and folding rear tail-gate.
Available here is an Australian delivered 1984 Range Rover sold new with the tag-line “Luxury need not stop where adventure begins”. Offered in Arctic White over Palomino velour trim this collectable and very original car is an excellent driver.
Retaining many of its original quirks in fantastic condition from the original front bar with manual engine crank cut-out (only for the brave) and metal grill, the original tail gate with correct Triple X glass so often lost to the ravages of time, and finer details like the absurd 16 screw tail lights, original wheels and front seat mounted safety belts often changed this Range Rover carries all the hallmarks of a well maintained car, ripe for collecting.
Recently benefitting from new paintwork in period correct Arctic White and refurbished alloy wheels with new Dunlop multi-purpose tyres the road presence and usability of this Range Rover is unmatched.
Offered in excellent condition this Australian delivered two-door Range Rover is certain to be a hit within the coffee and cars scene and as equally at home put to work for some weekend mud-slinging.
The fact that this generation of Range Rover was so good off-road has also been their Achilles-heel as many were destroyed over time. As a result exceptional early Range Rovers now command as much as the most sophisticated modern 4X4s with values and interest skyrocketing 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.
