1971 Range Rover Suffix ASOLD
A fantastic early UK delivered Suffix A model that has been restored to an exceptional standard and comprehensively re-engineered by renowned Range Rover experts, Kingsley, in Oxfordshire. Since completion the car has been little used on dry roads only and remains in superb, clearly better than new, condition in all respects.
Kingsley have become highly respected for their range of upgrades making the early Range Rovers much more capable and enjoyable to drive. Following a full restoration to the highest standards, a full upgrade programme began for this car. No expense was spared, resulting in one of the highest spec examples from Kingsley to date.
The specification includes:
4.6 V8, 270bhp, with updated engine management and injector set with higher lift camshaft
Fast road exhaust system with custom manifolds
ZF4HP22 automatic transmission
Kingsley uprated suspension and handling kit
Fast ratio steering box
Custom built rostyle wheel set as original but wider
Full leather interior
Hifi unit with JL Audio speakers hidden behind period grilles.Full Waxoyl treatment
The above lists the main items however as usual there is a myriad of detail work and parts involved to complete the car.
I recently had the pleasure of driving the Rangie from Cornwall back to the Cotswolds and was very impressed by the quality, refinement and fast pace of the car. Less well modified cars can sometimes feel rather awkward and incomplete, however this Kingsley car feels like a much better item than the original item and is streets ahead in usability. Many other motorists were clearly astonished at the effortless turn of speed the car exhibited on the M5. A great car finished in its original shade of Davos White with great detail that really must be driven to be appreciated.
