Not only is this one of the earliest Suffix A Range Rovers available, the history of the car is absolutely outstanding. Many period photos such as ELA in active service at Farnborough Air Show and a video of Charles Spencer King driving this vehicle whilst sharing his recollections of the inception of the now legendary Range Rover.
Chassis number 48 was the 3rd vehicle to leave the factory production line in 1970.
Finished in Sahara Dust, it was purchased by the UK government towards the end of August 1970 and sent to Wadham Stringer near Portsmouth for conversion to a rapid response medical vehicle, and used by the Ministry of Defence for many years on RAF bases around the country.

Ready to grace any collection, Concours lawn or be put into daily use this car has it all.
