Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Only 200 lim­ited edi­tion CSK Range Rovers were built and ex­am­ples with a man­ual gear­box are even rarer, so buy­ers look­ing for a three-pedal model needn’t have looked any fur­ther. Num­ber 153 had been through the hands of seven own­ers but this was no dog-eared, down on its bump­stops ex­am­ple, but rather one that had re­ceived a nut-and-bolt restora­tion with a 4.6-litre en­gine. Cost­ing £115,000, that restora­tion was just about spot-on, with su­perb body­work and com­men­su­rate panel fit, topped-off with deep, lus­trous paint. The un­der­side was equally fine and the in­te­rior was ul­tra-smart and had no signs of wear. The big­ger-dis­place­ment V8 fea­tured per­for­mance camshafts, driv­ing through A new-old stock gear­box and trans­fer box, while the sus­pen­sion was up­graded with polyurethane bushes. Just right, and far bet­ter value than a much more ex­pen­sive brand-new model.
