1978 Range Rover 2-Door Is The Anti-Evoque

If you’re a regular reader of AutoGuide, you’ll know that we’re big fans of the Range Rover Evoque. It looks better in person than it does in pictures, and the car-based chassis, coupled with an EcoBoost 4-banger is just right for 99% of Range Rover customers and their urban driving.

But there would be no 2-door Evoque if it weren’t for the grandaddy of the brand, the original Range Rover. Before 1981, all Range Rovers were two-door vehicle, with spartan interior and a Buick-derived V8, a far cry from the lush, four-door, BMW and Jaguar powered versions that exist today.

Bring A Trailer, one of the best classic car sites on the internet, found this example being sold in New Hampshire for $6500. This one is only for the brave, but it’s likely more reliable than the current crop of Ranges, and will certainly stand out from the nouveau riche crowd that pilots them. Did we mention it’s a manual?
