Yeah, it's a two door Range Rover. But it's a project, and the seller isn't trying to hide that. This 1972 model was built only two years after the introduction of the revolutionary model—and there's even a 200TDI under the hood to replace the less-powerful factory engine. Here's the best part about the older Range Rover models: they're stupid simple and reliable, yet still comfortable enough to cruise down the highway, especially with the added power of the 200TDI that was removed from a 1990 Defender 130. The Range Rover is also equipped with the stunning factory wheels and a Warn 8274 winch. Did we mention it's sitting on eBay right now for only $2500?
The vehicle appears to be in relatively good shape.
If you think the new Range Rover is too luxurious, take a look at this interior.
Here's what the seller had to say about the vehicle:
I am selling a Very Rare right hand Drive 1972 2 Door Classic with a 200tdi Turbo Diesel engine conversion. The conversion is Not Complete I lost interest and an selling it as is. Engine and transmission alone are worth $2500.00! Engine runs and is strong. The drive train is from a 1990 Defender 130 so it is very robust drivetrain. The vehicle is titled as a 1990 Range Rover Classic but I am selling it as a parts car. This classic also has a Warn 8270. It comes with extra large aftermarket inter cooler and extra passenger door Needs work to be completed. My loss is your gain. Feel free to ask questions. I will do my best to answer in a timely manner.
IM SORRY THAT I WAS NOT MORE CLEAR ON THIS PROJECT VEHICLE. THIS RANGE ROVER IS NOT SOMETHING YOU AND ED CHINA FROM WHEELER DEALER FAME WOULD TAKE ON THIS IS MORE LIKE CHIP FOOSE AND OVERHAULIN!!
The Range Rover is pretty complete I would say 90 to 95%, the drive train is about the same 80 to 90% complete. Some parts will need modifying and as with any engine conversion you will need to fabricate some things.
All parts are available for the drive train from Rovers North.
The way I see this is that the 2 door classic is worth min. $2500.00 and the 200tdi drivetrain is worth at least that as well.
As a matter of fact I believe that someone on ebay is selling the 200 tdi motor alone for $2999.00
Please think long and hard this in not a turnkey car although you can turn the key nothing will happen until you put it all back together
Think Chip Foose not Ed China.
Thanks for all your calls and emails.
Good Luck JIM
