This beautiful classic Range Rover is finished in Portofino Red with grey ‘teddy bear’ cloth trim. It is a superbly unmolested, original example that has covered just 62,000 miles from new. It is refreshingly free of off-road addenda, such as bull bars etc. And in absolutely immaculate condition throughout.
This Vogue is the last of the 3.5-litre models, built shortly before the introduction of the 3.9, benefiting from electronic fuel injection and coupled to the desirable automatic gearbox.
First registered on January 27th 1989, this Range Rover Vogue was supplied to a Mr Harding by St. Helier Garages Ltd. of Jersey who kept the car for 21 years until 2013 when he purchased a new Range Rover Sport. Just 56,858 miles had been covered at the time.
Thanks to an easy life on the Channel Islands in the hands of one owner, this Range Rover had a very low mileage, had never been subjected to salted roads and beautifully cared for, explaining its incredible rust-free condition.
Recently subject to a substantial recommissioning service and refurbishment by a well regarded marque specialist with a view to maintaining the already superb condition and ensuring it stays that way into the future. In addition, new Goodyear tyres were fitted all round.
This Range Rover has a full service history – in addition to the original book pack containing all original books/manuals and the service book, there is a folder of receipts detailing work carried out, including the latest refurbishment, of which there are photos as well.
There was also a two-page feature on this Classic in the November ’17 issue of ‘The Landy’ newspaper, a copy of which is included in the file.
In terms of condition this Range Rover is quite exceptional. The Portofino Red paintwork gleams, the underside is superb – corrosion free and well protected and the interior is simply unmarked, commensurate with its low mileage and long term ownership. On the road it’s the same story – smooth, quiet and tight with that lofty driving position that makes piloting one of these machines so special.
In short, such a superb, low mileage, correctly maintained Range Rover Classic is quite a find and will undoubtedly provide its next owner with a great deal of pleasure.
