History of the Range Rover

The late 1960’s saw the emergence of the recreational off-road market led Land Rover to come up with a radically new competitor to the Jeep Wagoneer and the Ford Bronco. Land Rover passed on this challenge to Charles Spencer King, under the project title of “The 100 inch Station Wagon”.

It all started when Rover bought a Bronco and noticed the coiled suspension, this boosted the luxury element as gave improved performance and comfort. He also noted the powerful Buick V8. However, Mr. King gave the Range Rover several unique capabilities, improved carburettors that still fed fuel at extreme angles and the infamous started handle for emergencies.

It was launched in 1970 as “a car for all reasons”. The Range Rover was also the first permanent 4x4 to do over 100mph whilst having a towing capacity of 3.5 metric tons, accommodation for five, hydraulic disc brakes to all wheels and the groundbreaking dual-range, permanent four-wheel drive gear box.

A four door version was introduced in 1981, with the two door version phased out in 1994, it was then named the ‘Classic’ to differentiate from the all new P38a Range Rover.

The Car

This 1988 Range Rover 2 Door was delivered by Austin Rover Espana S.A to Madrid on the 23d December 1987 and first registered by Land Motors S.A in Barcelona on 01/08/1988. The last change of ownership took place on 10/15/2014 to a Mr Angel Carballes Munoz. In recent years the vehicle has resided in León. The Range Rovers benefits from the earlier double handed doors and 70s/80s style seats which are becoming increasingly hard to find and desirable. Thus the vehicle represents a great basis for a backdating project and or engine upgrade.
