The 1976 Range Rover Suffix D was last in traffic at the end of the 90’s. Since 1998 it was sitting  in the first owner’s garage until the beginning of the last year. According to its first owner’s son, there were a few things that had to be fixed to pass the MOT in the late 90’s and the owner drove it to the garage with the aim to repair the car. 

That never happened. The owner was already old gentleman when he bought the car in 1976 and he drove it very rarely. The car was in his garage until Spring 2019. The first owner was passed away and his son, also already aged gentleman, sold it.

The paint, interior and engine of the car are all original. Even the original roof upholstery that usually hangs and tears away, has survived! All the original papers, including the first registration paper, are stored. Also all the original tools are in the trunk.  Between the 1976–1998 the car has been driven only 138 000 kilometers.

The car will be restored with respect for the original features. The body was taken off and both the whole chassis and the rusts of the body were sandblasted off. After refurbished the chassis was painted correctly. Some bodywork was needed in typical places, for example sills and front inner wings. Body and the lower tailgate has been refurbished and painted correctly.

The engine will be completely overhauled after long period stood unused. Brakes, suspension and other techniques are restored so that the maneuverability is made justice. The paint of the body panels as well as the interior are kept as original as possible.

What a time machine! The car can almost always be restored to look like new, but it’s impossible to replace an original well-kept car. Outside and inside it is impressively original, but underneath and mechanically the car is going to be as new.

The restoration of the car will be completed and the car will be on sale at the end of May / June 2020.
