RANGE ROVER 1 (CLAS­SIC)

Land Rover Monthly - - Classifieds -

1970 TO 1996

EARLY THREE-DOOR ex­am­ples com­mand se­ri­ous money and rar­ity, to­gether with clas­sic car col­lec­tors, are push­ing prices up even fur­ther. But rust is the big­gest en­emy and steel body pan­els are get­ting dif­fi­cult to source. V8s are ex­pen­sive to run, but the later Tdi diesels are rea­son­ably fru­gal. Later mod­els cer­tainly rep­re­sent the best value and prices are ris­ing, with high-spec ver­sions like the Vogue SE or 4.2 LSE the most de­sir­able. BUYER'S TIP: A truly drive­able clas­sic. SPEC­I­FI­CA­TIONS 3.5-litre V8, 125 bhp, 185 lb-ft torque. on 3.5 EFI: 165 bhp, 206 lb-ft. 3.9 EFI V8, 185 bhp, 235 lb-ft or 4.2, 200 bhp. 2.4 VM turbo diesel, 112 bhp, 183 lb-ft, later 119 bhp 2.5.
