Anthony Allen’s 1971 Range Rover Classic LHD

This is my 1971 Range Rover Classic LHD -it is made of about five different cars, none of which were very good…..
I bought it at xmas and started work after the mince pies had worn off.It had a very bad paintjob-mid blue with metalflake thrown in, having been burned off by the spanish sun for ten years-it will change!
Once I had it on the ramp I could assess the culmination of many years bodging. I bought a new mig welder, some sill and wheelarch repair panels, grinding discs and some tea bags. must remember to get a kettle…….
After two days stripping off the drug dealer bodykit and removing the interior, wings,tailgates, tailgate frames and rear glass I had half a range rover with a lot of holes.
I have just bought another range rover for spares and have just finished the welding-hoping to steam clean the whole thing underneath this week so that I can paint chassis and repair the leaking axles.
I hope to have it screwed back together for the end of February, but not in time for next Morris Leslie sale.
