Here we have a very low mileage example of a lovely late 3.5 V8 with EFI.
This rangie has only covered 84,000 miles and has full Land Rover/ Specialist history.
The car has had only 3 previous owners, The car was sold new by T P Topping LTD, Enniskillen in Northern Ireland on the 12/11/1989.
It spent the 7 years of its life in Northern Ireland and then it was sold to a Mr Hollingworth of Rhydowen, Wales in 1996 when it was imported. It stayed with Mr Hollingworth in dry storage until 2008, The car was sold with his estate to a Mr Elder of Milton Keynes, There it was stored off road and waiting to be put back on the road. Sadly this didn’t happen.

As it stands, It hasn’t been on the road for a number of years. It remains incredibly standard and untouched. The Body work is very straight and true, The paint is actually not too bad either.
There is of course, Some rust and work that will need to be done before it could be put back on the road. This is a very exciting project, with this low mileage and in this condition, It is a real opportunity to restore an original classic Range Rover.
It does no run currently but i’ll get my mechanic to have a look and hopefully get running. It turns over fine and there are not any major oil or water leaks.
It comes with a spare top tail gate as it is missing the handle etc. Very nice interior with electric seats
