Range Rover Rescue discussion

Recommended Posts

Awesome cheers for that Torton.

Still hunting tyres for this thing. If any one has some leads on some 205R16 that look similar to this tread patten let me know. Everything I find looks too modern and lame. 

Photo below of the Factory Michelin X M+S on it. Awesome tread but way too old and cracked to fang down the motorway on.

Any leads on this greatly appreciated!

No big updates on Red yet but I did get down to Christchurch for some site visits last week so I got to send some time with the parents and the other Rover...

It is a pretty solid truck but needs to go through compliance again as the last owner let it lapse. 

1979 and a suffix F so one of the last ones in the suffix range. Nice to have power steering and a few other luxuries that the A does not.

This is the good side, other has a bit of panel damage.

Tossing up if I should get it through compliance in Christchurch and drive it up or get it on a transporter up to Auckland. Any recommend compliance places in Christchurch?

Good to see you taken it to my mate Glen's shop he's the Landrover expert.

Glen and Greg are absolute legends! Their quality of work is outstanding. 

Some more Land Rover faff to add. Sold my Range Rover LSE, the 4.2 was just too expensive to run as a daily! I do miss the big old thing though. How good is that rear leg room!

It has been replaced by an 1998 300tdi Disco. UK model but came over early, it is also a very basic spec which I love. No ABS, AC, Airbags and manual sunroofs. Great parts hauler and camping machine.
