RANGE ROVER CLAS­SIC

WE ALL love the Range Rover Clas­sic. It was in pro­duc­tion from 1970 to 1996 and there should be a lot around to choose from. That there isn’t is be­cause so many have rusted away to obliv­ion. Body cor­ro­sion is a huge is­sue and good ones are get­ting pricier be­cause col­lec­tors are snap­ping up de­cent ex­am­ples for pos­ter­ity.

De­spite all this, you can pick up a good one for £5000. The Rover V8 petrol en­gines are a de­light to be­hold, but thirsty. Early Ital­ian-made VM diesel en­gines had a mixed re­cep­tion, but the later Tdi en­gines, as found in Disco and Defender, are bul­let­proof

TIP: Rust is the Clas­sic's con­stant en­emy.

After all these years the orig­i­nal Range Rover is a real head-turner
