RANGE ROVER 1 (CLAS­SIC)

Land Rover Monthly - - Pricecheck -

1970 to 1996

EARLY THREE-DOOR ex­am­ples com­mand se­ri­ous money and rar­ity, and clas­sic car col­lec­tors are push­ing prices up even fur­ther. But se­vere rust is the big­gest en­emy and some body pan­els are get­ting dif­fi­cult to source. V8s are ex­pen­sive to run, but the later Tdi diesels are rea­son­ably fru­gal. Later models in good nick have been steadily ris­ing in re­cent years, with high-spec ver­sions like the Vogue SE or 4.2 LSE the most de­sir­able.

BUYER’S TIP: Check thor­oughly for body cor­ro­sion. SPEC­I­FI­CA­TIONS 1971-1983: 3.5-litre V8, 125 bhp, 185 lb-ft torque. 1986-on 3.5 EFI: 165 bhp, 206 lb-ft. 1989-1996: 3.9 EFI V8, 185 bhp, 235 lb-ft or 4.2-litre, 200 bhp. 1986-1992: 2.4 VM turbo diesel, 112 bhp, 183 lb-ft, later 119 bhp 2.5.
