How about a vintage Range Rover Convertible?

How about a vintage Range Rover Convertible?

Just as Land Rover looks forward to its launch of the much-discussed Evoque convertible, a modified vintage Range Rover goes up for sale

A 1973 Range Rover Convertible will undoubtedly be the star of the show when it goes under the hammer next month.

Probably the best example of its kind forms the centrepiece of Silverstone Auction’s November catalogue and is expected to fetch between £35,000 and £40,000.

Starting life as the first–generation Range Rover, it was transformed back in the 80s by the UK’s Special Vehicle Conversions and has since undergone an extensive eight-month restoration costing circa £20,000.

Like all vintage models the story behind this unique Range Rover is just as special. The tale goes that its owner won it at a card game, but had no space for it so put it into storage which accounts for its modest mileage of a smidgen over sixty thousand.

Grab your very own slice of automotive history, but expect it to top its’ estimate.
