First Production Range Rover to be Restored

Back to Main Page
Posted On: Dec 12, 2013 By: Charles Kayajian Category: Land Rover News

A lifelong Range Rover enthusiast has purchased one of the very original Range Rover prototypes and has plans to completely restore the vehicle, and then sell it.

According to Jalopnik:

Twenty-five Range Rovers were used as mules, prototypes and pre-production vehicles badged as "VELAR" to disguise their true identity before the first actual Range Rover hit the dealership in 1970. This is that car. It's being brought back to life so it can go to a new home. Chassis 26 is getting a nut-and-bolt restoration.

The Range Rover was purchased by Andrew Honychurch back in 2000 and was in need of a lot of work. It was missing its original V8 engine and was suffering serious rust and corrosion throughout. After welding the rear of the chassis, Andrew set about sourcing a new engine and parts. Fortunately, most of the parts had been located back when he first purchased the vehicle; most are nearly impossible to find now. Most of the parts are secondhand and highly expensive due to their scarcity (for example, Honychurch notes that a fuel cap ran him nearly $600!).
