Auction Block: 1972 Range Rover Ambulance ‘Shooting Brake’

Sep 10, 2021

Category: Rides

Prior to being the rolling status symbols that they are today, Range Rover was once a largely utility-focused outfit, used by ranchers, military personnel, and various public utilities. Recognizing the platform’s versatility, a pair of Ranger Rovers in the early 1970s were built out as stepped roof ambulances — both of which were constructed on one of the half-dozen long-wheelbase prototypes that were ever produced.

After spending nearly four-and-a-half decades as part of the St. John’s Ambulance Brigade fleet, one of these examples — chassis number “355-04063A” — was purchased and converted to a civilian vehicle by classic Range Rover specialists Bishops 4×4. Capitalizing on the rear cabin’s spacious interior, the Cambridgeshire shop has added a set of folding rear bench seats, as well as a custom set of pilots seats, bespoke door handles, and new light brown vinyl and leather upholstery throughout. Now referred to as a “Shooting Brake,” this 1972 Range Rover Ambulance build is slated to cross the auction block at Bonhams’ upcoming Goodwood Revival sale where it’s expected to fetch between $110,000 and $170,000.

Purchase: $110,000+
