The prices of Disco 1s have fallen so far that you could probably pick up five typical D1s for £5000. But all five are going to look tired, with severe corrosion problems either now or in the near future. The reality of early Discovery ownership is that remedial welding is going to feature heavily every year at MOT time.
But if you do find a good one – and £5000 should find you the very best – you will enjoy the experience of a car that shook up the motoring world when it was launched nearly 30 years ago.
TIP: Check carefully for rust in all areas, but especially the sills (inner and outer) and boot floor.
