Range Rover number one sells for £115,000

Published 04 September 2014

The very first production Range Rover ever made has sold for £115,000 at auction.

Chassis number one was expected to fetch between £100,000 and £140,000 when it went under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions’ Salon Prive sale on Thursday, September 4.

The subject of a six-year restoration, chassis number one has been returned to its original Olive Green colour and retains all its ‘matching number’ components – chassis, engine, gearbox and axles, plus the original aluminium bonnet and original bodyshell.

In 1997, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency reissued it with its original registration number – YVB 151H.
