1988 Range Rover

Story and History

1988 Range Rover Vogue SE Left Hand Drive 40th Anniversary Special Edition - Under Offer

Supplied new in California to Mr Kent of Palm Desert, who kept it there at his holiday home until it's arrival here in London in 1999. Whilst in California she was maintained on a regular basis, as evidenced by the Service Voucher Booklet (5 stamps including Range Rover Hollywood!!!)

Once here, at another of his holiday homes, this time in luxurious Belgravia, London, she has again been meticulously maintained by Main Agents. By 2006 her mileage had crept up to 60.000.

Mr Kent sold her directly to me in 2006, well before Classic Range Rovers had become fashionable and I bought her because I had never come across either, a 40th Anniversary Edition before, or found such an original unmolested example in such impeccable condition.

I sold her to only her second owner and she appeared along with 3 other Classic Range Rovers in Edition 67 of Octane Magazine. To quote him from that article "As soon as I saw this car I knew I had to have it."

The same thing happened to me when I was offered the car again - so here we are back in the fold, now with just 71.000 miles and a complete service history from new (since 2006 with us here), and only 2 owners. In completely original condition, never any rust at all and no remedial paintwork ever undertaken.

Specification in 1988 included the following:

- ZF Automatic 4-speed transmission with improved revised shift points and

torque converter lock-up speed to give improved response when driving, especially i town

- Improved brake servo and new disc material for better pedal effort

- Revised Air Conditioning ducts

- Sunroof electric, tilt and slide, optional

- Air Conditioning

- Centre chubby box

- Dual electric heated mirrors

- Electronic Cruise Control

- Floor mats - removeable

- Folding 60/40 rear seats

- Front door with puddle lamps

- Headlamp washers

- Integral trailer hitch receiver

- Rear window heater

- Rear window washer/wiper

- Removeable cargo cover

- Power windows and locks

- Electric power fronts seats - 6 ways

- Tinted windows

- Clarion AM/FM stereo cassette with 4 speakers

- Rear windscreen antenna with amplifier

- Walnut door cappings

Additionally for the American Market the 40th Anniversary was listed (it being 40 years since the introduction of the original Land Rover in 1948), available in either Chamonix White or Cyprus Green, as is this example.

Only 250 models were produced making this an extremely rare motor car indeed, especially on this side of the Atlantic.

A truly exceptional example.
