Star of the popular web series, Friends Cross the Canning, our Range Rover is up for sale. Registered and running regularly in WA, this is an original as you can get 1975 UK-built Range Rover Suffix-D 3,5 V8 2-door Classic, and ideal for a full restoration project with a major mechanical rebuild completed to a very high standard. About 6000 kms since overhauls. Odo reads 78 000 but its probably closer to 278 000. 

Engine rebuild, newly-rebuilt Perentie LT95 gearbox with higher ratio transfer box, upgraded ignition, new alternator, new cutch, rebuilt clutch master and slave cylinders, rebuilt brake master cylinder, new engine and gearbox mounts, new OME springs and shocks, new front brake rotors, all brake and cooling hoses replaced. Mechanically there is almost nothing more to do. Runs smoothly and cool with no rattles and handles very well. 

This car drove from Melbourne to Perth in 2021, and then completed the Canning Stock Route in 2022 with no mechanical issues to speak of and hardly used any oil. Starts first time, every time, 14L/100Kms on the long run.

Interior refurbishment has started.

The body is complete and in fair shape, the paintwork is scratched in places but with very nice patina and no significant denting. Electrics all work excepting the rear window de-mister. The interior is partially refurbished. It has good carpets and the driving seat and back seat have been refurbished.

What doesn’t work: Rear window de-mister, speedo, oil pressure gauge (needs new sender), clock. What needs changing before driving it to the moon and back? Probably just the speedo. Dash top is in bad shape through sun damage but a used one in good condition as a replacement is included.

Not only does it run really well, has very little rust and the drivetrain and engine are excellent. Some very difficult to find spares (like the dash top) are part of this deal. The few places where the rust was serious (rear body mounts) have been professionally repaired (pics available).

We are selling because this car was a hero in a web video series and is being sold to finance new channel projects.

Price is negotiable, and as we have another vehicle to fund, any close offers will be successful.

Based near Perth, WA. No tyre kickers please. This is not an invitation for fans of the show to come and ‘test’ drive it.
