Introduced in 1970 as a three-door, the Range Rover did not get rear doors until ten years later, when a four-door model came on the market in June 1981. As many of competitors eliminated three-door SUVs from their selections, Land Rover decided to continue manufacturing the three-door Range Rover for the European market. Most of the three-door Range Rovers of the 1990s were sold to Southern Europe and were often equipped with VM’s and later Land Rover’s own diesel engines for tax reasons.

In 1989, Land Rover introduced a 3.9 liter version of Rover’s V8 to the Range Rover. The transmission was either a ZF four-speed automatic or an LT77 five-speed manual with oil pump and cooler. With a new injection engine and a better insulated body, the three-door Range Rover was modernized to the comfort level of the four-door model. At the turn of the decade, the Range Rover also underwent numerous other reforms and, among other things, velor became available as an interior material.

This “Green over tan” 1990 3.9 Efi V8 with 5-speed manual, has been sold as new by Land Rover’s official Spanish dealer. The car was in Spain until 2022, when Finnish car enthusiast R.Collin bought a Range Rover to Finland.

We bought the car in May 2023. During the years 2023-2024, the car has been serviced, renovated and built in back date style, respecting the originality:

The car has been thoroughly serviced: The engine oils and filters, as well as the oils of the gearbox, transfer case and differentials have all been renewed. Greases of wheel hubs have been renewed. The engine has new spark plugs and the fuel injection has been adjusted. The cooling system has been washed and the cooling fluids renewed. The brake and clutch fluids have been renewed.

The heating device and the fan ducts as a whole have been disassembled, cleaned and renovated. The air conditioning has been serviced and filled.

The body and chassis have been preserved in Spain in very good condition. The car has recently been repainted in the original Eastnor Green shade. The bumpers, light surroundings and grille have been “back dated” and changed to refursbished original parts of the 1970s Range Rover.

The interior has been renewed in the colors of Range Rover’s original Palomino beige and tan brown shade:

The front seats are authentic Recaros from the 1990s reupholstered in tan brown. The back seat is a Range Rover original, also reupholstered with tan. The cabin is finished with Momo’s wooden steering wheel and wooden gear stick knob.

In the interior, the door trims have been renewed in the original Palomino shade, and the center console and dashboard have been refurbished in the original dark grey tones. The roof upholstery has been renewed recently. The back of the back seat has been refurbished and painted. The original Range Rover front seats, steering wheel and gear stick knob are preserved and included if wanted.

The car has been fitted with modern audio equipment, the installations of which have been finished with period correct speaker trims. The audio equipment includes a separate speaker set, coaxial speakers and a subwoofer hidden under the front seat.

The tires are new Toyo AT tires in “Camel Trophy” size, 215 / 85 / 16.

The car’s engine and gearbox are healthy and work without flaws, the Rover’s V8 runs smooth and drives perfect. The Range Rover  was Mot/Tüv inspected in August 2023 and is ready even for a daily driver.

Range Rover is located in Luhtaanmäki, Vantaa – 25 minutes from Helsinki–Vantaa Airport. Views by appointment only.
