Range Rover
first registered 11/1985

3.5 litre V8 twin carburetter
5-speed manual transmission
Chamonix White / Bronze cloth interior

144000 kms



By 1986 the Range Rover Vogue had evolved into a luxury vehicle, equipped with alloy wheels, walnut door cappings, loadspace carpeting, electric windows, central locking, head restraints and side and middle handrests in rear seats
It was the last year when the four door models were equipped with twin carburetters instead of the later fuel injection. Various suspension improvements were introduced.
Manual transmission was already upgraded to five speeds for MY 1984 and for 1986 it was improved with “short stick” gear change.

Extremely original, well documented and well kept example with fascinating history.
According to British Motor Museum archives the car was destined for the Norwegian Embassy in Lagos, Nigeria, but ended up in Dubai UAE – probably due to the very unstable political situation in Nigeria at the time – and was sold to a Norwegian ocean liner captain there very early in it’s life.
He moved to Finland in 1990, imported the car with him and kept it until 2013. Three owners since, four in total.
Never needed full restoration, in original beautifully preserved state. Factory air conditioning working well.
Soon to be registered on historic plates (museorekisteröinti).
