'Suffix A' Range Rover production ran from the introduction of the Rover's upmarket off‑roader from 1970 through to 1973, when the 'Suffix B' models were introduced ‑ thus, a Suffix A is the Range Rover in its purest, most original two‑door form ‑ and all the more desirable to enthusiasts because of that.

This Tuscan Blue example, registered in September 1972, was restored five years ago but then never used. The vendor tells us that lots of money was spent, during what was a body‑off rebuild. All the panels were dipped and painted, while the suspension was treated to Bilstein shocks, a new steering box and Polyurethane bushes throughout. The Rover V8 engine was rebuilt, an Allisport alloy radiator fitted, a new clutch put in, and the brakes renewed, with Goodridge brake lines throughout. A new fuel tank was installed, along with a Facet fuel pump. All tyres were renewed.

While the vehicle has been sat in a dry garage for three years, it will need some recommissioning to be returned to the road. A new rear bumper is also required. The indicated mileage is 31,575.  

The history folder includes bills from the restoration running to several thousands, as well as the current V5C document.
