Classic Car Auctions says:

An early production four door Range Rover with four-speed manual long-throw gearbox and Fairey overdrive, and showing just 56,000 miles from new. Supplied new by Henleys of Palmers Green, London in 1982. The vendor informs us that the car is corrosion free with good door shuts and panel gaps. The underside is in very good condition probably as a result of Ziebart rust protection from new. Recent expenditure includes a new exhaust system and new radiator.The 15ins Rostyle wheels have recently been professionally refurbished and the normal Range Rovers issues are not present here. With the original 'Teddy Bear' cloth interior and finished in gleaming Sahara Dust, the car presents beautifully today, and the pictures speak for themselves.
