Unusual 1973 Range Rover convertible to be auctioned at the NEC Classic Motor Show sale

Made popular when Roger Moore as James Bond drove one into an equestrian event during the opening scenes of the 1983 Bond film Octopussy, Range Rover convertibles were generally the preserve of Middle Eastern monarchs and generally produced by a firm named Special Vehicle Conversions (SVC) Ltd. An especially fine example is to be sold by Silverstone Auctions in November and it comes with a surprisingly low guide price of £35,000 to £40,000.

Described as an “immaculate original” and likely converted in the mid-1980s, the car for sale dates to 1973 and is especially rare as so few right-hand-drive models were produced. Finished in Rioja red with a Palomino interior, the car has covered some 62,500 miles and was subject to a comprehensive eight month renovation costing some £20,000 recently. It was apparently won by its former keeper in a card game in the mid-1990s and then lost and rediscovered in 2014 in a lock-up garage.

 

Said to be “equally at home on a grouse moor on an August afternoon, or burbling down Chelsea’s King’s Road with a different quarry in mind”,  Silverstone Auctions will auction the vehicle at the NEC at their sale on the weekend of the 14th and 15th November.
