THE AUCTION IS UNDER PROXY BIDDING
1991 Range Rover Vogue
This 1991 Range Rover is a well-sorted Australian-delivered example which shows in a nice red colour combination. Under the bonnet is a naturally-aspirated 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. This example currently shows 203,314km on its odometer.
The modern-day SUV can trace its origins back to this car. Making its debut in the late 1960s and continuing production right up until the mid 1990s was the Range Rover – a car that could handle both disciplines of off-road capability and on-road comfort in equal measure. This level of ability came at a time when no other carmaker could muster the same feat. Rivals such as the Jeep Wrangler or Toyota LandCruiser were too harsh to use everyday on the road. The Range Rover’s reputation stands to this day. The Range Rover was also equipped with luxurious fittings and appointments befitting of the British manufacturer Rover. Successive generations after 1996 transformed the look of the Range Rover, while these big and blocky Range Rover Classics are favoured for their unique designs and vintage character.
Wearing a tasteful wine red colour on the exterior and upholstered with grey fabric inside, this Range Rover’s period correct specification stands the test of time. No major modifications are listed and the car presents in as-delivered specification. The interior is highlighted by woodgrain trim inserts. A Clarion head unit takes place of the original. The car rides on a set of its original body-coloured 16-inch alloy wheels which come wrapped in Yokohama Geolandar all terrain tyres.
This vehicle was built in England in August 1991 and was delivered new through Ritter Automotive in VIC. It is now a three-owner car which has been well looked after. The current owner is a mechanic who has been custodian of the vehicle for the last 15 years. The floors have been rust protected as has the underbody – common points of corrosion on these Range Rovers. The seller has also removed the air suspension which is prone to failure. The seller states it has no major accident history and it drives very well.
Considering this Range Rover’s age and mileage, it exterior has been very well preserved. The red paintwork shows in complete order throughout and glosses nicely in the light. No major signs of damage or marks are seen on the body panels. The usual chips and nicks are seen around the door handles, but are considered normal for the car’s age. Pinstriping alongside the profile shows in good condition. All four wheels show in great condition without paint fade or curb rash, while the tyres display a near-new amount of tread.
The cabin has fared similarly well with intact fabrics and next to no marks seen on the trims. Even the dash appears without cracking, which is common for a vehicle of its vintage. The carpeting shows in clean order throughout the car, while the seats show no stains or tears. All instrumentation operates as normal.
This vehicle will be sold with a suite of books and two sets of keys.
