Probably the most important left hand drive “Classic” Range Rover in existence, and a significant piece of Land Rover history.
‘647644’ was the very last two-door that rolled off the production line in Solihull on 11th January 1994.
Since the 2019 SV Coupé two-door of the current model range was cancelled this also remains the last production example of any generation.
2020 will be the 50th anniversary of the Range Rover, and 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the end of two-door production.
Quoting respected Land Rover historian James Taylor from his book Range Rover First Generation – The Complete Story;
“Two-door Range Rovers reached Portugal in ‘van’ form with no rear seats and with temporary plain black panels made of board in the side window apertures. Once safely in the country, they were then united with the missing elements and built up into ordinary two-door models for sale. The very last two-door Range Rover, SALLHAAF8KA-647644 built in January 1994, was one of these fake vans destined for Portugal. As its VIN shows, it was built to a 1993 specification; there were no 1994-model two-doors with the LA prefix code”
From another chapter in the same book;
“The final act in the phoney 1994 model-year came in January 1994, when the two-door models were taken out of production. With them went the van models sold to some overseas countries; in fact, the very last two-door model was a van destined for Portugal (where it would be turned into a standard vehicle once it had passed through import controls). Its VIN of SALLHAAF8KA-647644 had the 1993 model-year KA identifier, even though it was actually built in the 1994 calendar year.”
