Range Rover First Generation: The Complete Story (Crowood Autoclassics)

$49.95
  • Barcode: 9781785004117

The Range Rover's designers intended it to be a more comfortable and road-friendly passenger-carrying Land Rover, but customers quickly saw something much more in it. During the 1970s, while its immense practicality and capability were appreciated and acknowledged, a Range Rover became a sought-after and prestigious possession. It went on to change the face of Land Rover for ever. The book covers the full development story; the changes made during twenty-six years of production; custom and utility conversions; Range Rovers for the US market; full technical specications and finally, Range Rovers assembled overseas. If ever a car deserved the over-used epithet 'iconic', the first-generation Range Rover is it.
