DIS­COV­ERY 1

Land Rover Monthly - - £5000 Buying Guide -

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.
