The no-nonsense Land Rover was an unashamed agricultural workhorse and, though fully roadable, was never intended to cosset its occupants. From day one, there therefore lay scope for the production of a sibling that combined the Landie’s much-vaunted off-road prowess with a greater degree of on-road chic and comfort. Though various such plans were mooted in the 1950s, it was the emergence of the SUV market in America a decade later that finally convinced Rover to create such a model. Spen King famously oversaw the ‘100 inch Station Wagon’ project that was finally revealed to the world as the Range Rover in 1970 - a David Bache design that created a whole new genre of go-anywhere vehicles, which remains in full bloom today.

This desirable 2 door Range Rover was manufactured in 1974. Originally Red, this particular example is now presented in an attractive white with contrasting Palomino interior, ‘GWB 201N’ was subject to an older restoration and more recently, in 2021 was retrimmed by Nationwide Trim at a cost of c. £4,500. Now showing 51,321 miles on the odometer, this vehicle comes fitted with a walnut boot chest and comes accompanied with a paper land rover wallet containing an original maintenance schedule (which the vendor is unsure belongs to the car), owners manual, small collection of Range Rover sales leaflets and brochures, optional equipment leaflet and V5 document which displays 16 former keepers. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, engine, electrical equipment and interior trim as ‘very good’, with the paintwork and transmission as ‘good’.
