The first ever production Range Rover will be restored and sold

by SpeedLux

Recently we came to know that the very first production Range Rover which will get the chance of a second life through a major restoration process.

The first Range Rover was manufactured way back in 1970 and is now in the possession of Andrew Honychurch who bought it back in 2000 along with the original license plate. However, the restoration process will require some serious bodywork as the car suffered from severe corrosion over the period of such a long time.

When Andrew bought the car it was missing the original V8 engine and the power came from a motor taken from a Rover sedan. However, he could manage to find a crate engine (of correct age) and go away with the Rover engine.

Once the restoration process will be completed, the car will be sold and its owner Andrew is of the opinion that its value will increase taking into account it’s the first registered Range Rover. Well we can say that what he is thinking is quite justified as there is nothing priceless than owning a first model and that too as old as around 43 years.
