Barn Find of the Century!!!

1980 Range Rover 2-door Classic was just found in Colorado and has a new home at Roadside Werx!

An old horse barn is the last place we thought to look after countless hours of searching for this "needle in a haystack" of a truck. Originally brought to the states in 1985, this RR Classic has lived it's life in the high country of Colorado, USA. Lucky for us, the owner tucked the truck away for safe keeping shortly after restoring the gem with parts he hauled from England along with the truck. With just under 80,000 miles on the motor, she's got a lot more trails to discover!

While we haven't had as much time as we've liked to look over the truck since arriving at our shop, we can tell you she runs and drives great. This RR Classic still has it's original power steering and original A/C (both function as if brand new!), as well as factory manual overdrive.

We will post more details once we get a chance to take a closer look! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Nice truck-looks like a great find.
Now, take off those silly Land Rover/Camel trophy stickers.

Is the rear tailgate dented?

I see what you are talking about the shadow in the picture on the rear tailgate. These are the first pics of it after rolling it out of the barn so some dust and spider webs but nothing to major to clean . I just changed the oil and checking the rest of the fluids as I text . I will get some more pics in a few after I washing her.

Love it stickers and all. Looks like a true "estate wagon" that would be used around the property for work use as well as leisure. Great find.
