Sellers original description:

I`ve had this Range Rover a long time now. But it`s time she went to a new home. I believe she is a 1976 build but a 1979 registered RHD export model. According to the Heritage Certificate it was built for Colin Chapman of Lotus fame...certainly this is borne out by local information. She has just passed the MOT with no advisories although as it lives in a heated garage and has thousands of pounds spent on it what was I expecting. Literally everything has been done to make this a reliable globetrotter. I have a huge amount of receipts to prove along with old MOT`s to confirm the low mileage. The body work is as you would expect in very good condition and has been regularly Waxoyled. The top tail gate is new although I have an old style one if you prefer. The headlining is spotless. The inner and outer sills have been replaced. The floors are all good. She has a heated screen, new BFG tyres, Warn 12000lb winch, split charge for winch and additional lights. Quick release roof lights and rack, ARB locking diffs front and rear along with a working center diff lock. ARB also powers tyre inflation kit provided. Halogen headlight conversion with Wood and Picket light guards. Tow ball and pin. Brakes fully rebuilt with stainless pistons and aero quip lines. New discs and all bearings and suspension joints replaced. Transfer box internals replaced with LSE cogs to give a more economical drive. No oil leaks from underneath. Engine holds very good oil pressure and has only done about 3000 miles. Front sump shield and diff covers front and rear. All trim including the brittle bits is there and complete. Extra equipment can be easily removed and has been fitted without damage to trim etc. New road springs , engine electrics, up rated alternator and rear seat belts. I have used genuine new old parts whenever possible and it drives as good as new.
