Sir David Attenborough talks about the changing seasons on the African Serengeti, and how the air currents can tickle the senses of a lion that can smell a coming rain from 50 miles away. This piques their appetites because with this rain will come lush grass where wildebeests will be grazing, and no match for the lion's appetite which has been fueled by a long drought. This is exactly where the Range Rover was meant to roam with its power, 4-wheel drive capabilities, and ultimate comfort and conveniences British Leyland had found their niche to beat the Jeep.
For consignment this Serengeti Range Rover, which can also be used to roam the upscale suburbs, shuttling children to their private schools, and providing head turning arrivals for their parents at the country club, all in 4-wheel drive glory.
Camouflaged in all black this large aluminum paneled truck has average minded gaps, 4 doors with high windows that are tinted and a large rear gate. Black 16-inch Methon thick spoked wheels are all around, and even the taillights have gridded protectors to help prevent breakage when you may tangle with an unexpected rhinoceros in the bush. High ground clearance for those deep dry riverbeds to climb in and out of. And more black coverings for the front grille and Range Rover badging on the front of the hood.
Climbing inside this tall truck we see plenty of saddle brown leather covering the front buckets in smooth form and some side door panels in suede form. Noted on the driver's door the wood appliqué has been replaced with black tape. Also, the front buckets have power controls for adjustment. These front buckets are in good form, holding their paddings and showing just a few creases from usage. A black and wood appliqué center console has a large storage bin, all the window controls, and sunroof switch. The automatic shift lever is forwarded by 2 massive cup holders, between is sitting the 4WD shifter. A large leather saddle brown rear bench with a center armrest is present, and just aft of this seat is the carpeted storage compartment accessible with the rear gate. Currently occupying some of this space is a JL Audio sub-woofer and some power boosters for the stereo, and a spare tire with its original wheel. All the floors have fairly clean gold carpeting, and the headliner is tight unpadded felt.
Underneath the bonnet is a nicely patina engine bay with some corrosion and dulled surfaces throughout. It sits in 3.9 Liter V8 format and has Lucas L-Jetronic EFI. There is a 4-speed automatic transmission on back.
The rockers appear clean and rust free, although there may have been previously and now well completed repairs to this area. Some surface rust is seen on suspension parts but all unremarkable. Up front rigid axle coil springs make up the suspension and on the rear are a De Dion axle and coil springs. Power disc brakes for all 4 corners and a stock exhaust complete the undercarriage safari.
We started this engine but was unable to run it long due to the need for a new radiator, water pump and clutch for the fan. So, we did not want it to overheat. We can mention that the consigner states it is being sold as is and no repairs to the aforementioned will take place prior to the sale.
A black and saddle brown leather 4WD with lots of power, and a good reputation for being able to toughen it out anywhere in the world, all in style, is the niche this big truck fills. Fix the cooling issue, and you are off to hunt the elusive wildebeest side by side with the lion while getting rammed by the rhinoceros…what a smashing adventure!
