Prince Charles’ 1979 Range Rover Classic up for sale

Land1

For those who though we couldn't top the Queen Mother mini bus, well, we just might have with a 1979 Range Rover Classic, originally owned by Prince Charles in his bachelor days.

According to the seller, this is a 'lovely and now sought after' early model, but just as significantly, it was supplied new to the Royal Mews in Buckingham Palace for the exclusive use of HRH Prince Charles. Indeed, he got it for his 21st birthday. Not just any old early model either, some unique features (at the time) were also added.

Those include pockets to both front doors, wood trim to both front doors and to the rear seat back, a low-emisssion engine, a fullly opening roof for bird watching, electric windows, an 'econometer' to show how economically you are driving and a dog mascot to bonnet.

It's been restored to 'original condition' with what's being described as a 'nut and bolt' restoration, costing over £72,000 to complete. With that in mind, this certainly doesn't come cheap. But if you want it, you can have it for £82,750.
