1970 Range Rover #001

That's right — this isn't just any Range Rover. It's the first. Heading up for auction soon, the 1970 Range Rover #001 was the first Range Rover to go onto the production line, and like any classic Rover, it's had its share of adventures. Built in late 1969, it was "lost" for a number of years in the '70s and '80s before being found in the early '90s and undergoing a six-year, ground-up restoration to bring it back to showroom condition and restore its original Olive Green color. Amazingly, despite all this is still retains all its "matching numbers" components, including the chassis, 3,528cc 8-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, and axles, as well as the original body shell and aluminum bonnet. When it comes to vintage Rovers, this is the one to own.
