£5000 RANGE ROVER?
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
