1991 Range Rover Vogue SE
This 1991 Range Rover Vogue SE is an Australian-delivered example which shows in respectable condition throughout. It is powered by a 3.9-litre petrol V8 engine which produces 136kW (182hp). Power is sent to all four wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission with added dual-range gearing for off-road work. The vehicle currently displays 478,674km on its odometer since new.
The genesis of the modern-day SUV began back in the late 1960s when Land Rover unveiled the Range Rover Classic. It pioneered a vehicle that could handle well on the road as well as it could venture off it, while outfitting the interior with luxurious appointments befitting of a British marque. At the time, few other car makers could claim to have off-roaders that balanced excellent on-road characteristics with an accomplished off-road reputation, which is why the Range Rover became famous throughout the world. Originally known simply as the Range Rover, the first-generation model was produced from 1970 until 1996, whereby it was then designated as the Range Rover Classic to distinguish it from its successors.
Painted in white on the outside and upholstered with brown leather inside the cabin, this Range Rover shows-up well in its original specification. The Vogue SE variant was the top-spec Range Rover of its time. This example equips an electric sunroof, power windows, tow bar hitch, and an aftermarket Kenwood head unit. It was also fitted with a 2.5-inch exhaust and UK police-spec springs. It rides on a set of original 16-inch three-spoke Range Rover wheels which have been painted black. The tyres are Hankook Dynapro all-terrains.
Built and shipped to Australia in 1991 and delivered new to its first Sydney owner in April 1992, this Range Rover’s early history is well-documented. The current owner bought the car in March 2021 and completed a series of works including a brand new air conditioner, new Kenwood stereo, new water pump, engine bay rust repairs and respray, and new seals and gaskets. This was completed through Rick’s 4WD Centre in QLD. The car was also thoroughly serviced by Bosch Euro Car Service Centre on the Gold Coast, QLD in May 2021. The owner assures it drives like a dream and is used as a daily driver – testament to its reliability.
The exterior condition of this Range Rover Classic is described as being good for its age. The paintwork shows in good order throughout, though some marks of stone chipping and scratches are evident in areas such as the leading edge of the bonnet. The vinyl wrap on the rear C-pillar panels is beginning to flake due to age. Signs of deterioration are seen underside the front bumper and on the underside of the bonnet. The fuel filler cap does get stuck and must be opened manually. All four wheels are unmarked of curb damage and the tyres retain a great level of tread depth.
The cabin shows in good order throughout. The leather is in good condition, the woodgrain trim elements show-up well for the car’s age, and the carpeting looks to be fairly complete (aside from some missing panels in the boot). Scuff, crease marks, and some discolouration is seen on some of the seats, though this should be considered commensurate use with the car’s age.
