1970 Range Rover #001 Up For Auction

Aug 18, 2014

The world’s very first Range Rover–now being referred to as the 1970 Range Rover #001–is heading to auction soon with an initial bid set at $230,000. The classic Rover was originally built in November and December 1969 and launched in 1970, but was then lost sometime in the ’70s before reappearing in the ’90s, when it was put on exhibition at Huddersfield Land Rover Centre, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. The first Range Rover was one of the British Motor Industry’s proudest success stories.

The #001 has undergone a six-year, ground-up restoration to bring it back to its initial showroom condition, even sporting the original olive green color. It also maintains all of its original “matching numbers” components and parts, which is quite astonishing, given the unimaginable number of adventures it has been driven on. This familiar boxy SUV has made it through the test of time, and would be a great addition to any car enthusiast’s garage. [Purchase]
