Finished in Niagara and wearing its original clear over base metallic paint this Series One Discovery still shines beautifully. Purchased from the original owner who kept the vehicle garaged has undoubtedly helped preserve this example to make it the exception to other offerings. Not modified in anyway a few blemishes can be seen but these do not affect the overall impressive appearance. Dealer supplied number plates front and rear and spare wheel cover are still fitted. Regularly treated to our own detailing standards this Discovery has enjoyed a classless, positive reaction on our travels to collect many classic cars and will continue to attract an increasing number of admirers.
Protected fully by genuine Land Rover accessories consisting of seat covers and rubber floor mats throughout from new this interior is remarkable. The Gleneden Grey Cloth seats are unworn and the grey carpeting clean. The roof lining remains tight and all interior functions operate correctly with the exception of the electric aerial which has been replaced with a manual one. This Discovery has escaped the normal abuse from hard daily use and presents itself in enthusiast, unmodified condition. The dealer tax disc holder contains every tax disc from new! The seven seat configuration standard on this ‘S’ specification adds even greater versatility. A rare survivor which has proved invaluable to KGF Classic Cars.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 300Tdi 2.5 diesel turbocharged and intercooled engine needs little introduction with proven strength, reliability and simplicity. Producing 111.3 bhp with an impressive 265 Nm of torque at just 1,800rpm, pulling power is guaranteed. A tough manual gearbox with high/low transfer giving 8 forward and 2 reverse gears is light with an accurate progressive clutch.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Factory specified and optional ‘Freestyle’ alloy wheels are immaculate and unmarked. Expensive and mandatory Goodyear Wrangler 235/70 R16 tyres grace all four corners with ample tread. Power assisted dual circuit hydraulic disc brakes on all four wheels bring this machine to an assured halt easily with recent new pads and discs.
Supplied new on the 15th July 1996 by our local Land Rover Dealer, Marshalls of Peterborough to a Mr Norman Depear this vehicle has only had two owners from new, KGF Classic Cars being current owner number two! Meticulously maintained every 6000 miles with accompanying invoices and service stamps leaving the third owner no doubt whatsoever how cared for this Land Rover is. Acquired by us in March 2012 from Mr Depear at 53,763 miles this example has now covered 92,000 miles from new. All handbooks, manuals and showroom brochures are included. Two sets of keys and functioning remotes on Dealer leather fobs are still present.
As a proven valuable asset to KGF Classic Cars an appreciative owner is ideally sought.
