Earlier Discovery 1 on offer at No Reserve from a deceased estate boasting the 3.5 litre fuel injected V8 and manual transmission
Dating from April 1992 this earlier, pre-facelift Series I Discovery is finished in dark Blue and sits on period correct 16” five-spoke alloy wheels and benefits from roof rails and a tow bar.
Under the bonnet, we find the proven 3.5 litre fuel injected (Lucas 14CUX) Rover V8 engine driving all-four wheels via five-speed manual transmission along with the usual high and low range transfer box and locking centre diff.
Inside, we find the standard light Sonar Blue cloth upholstery in what looks to be good order with twin sunroofs and four electric windows.
The truck comes to us from a deceased estate and comes with only the current MOT certificate valid until September 2023 recording three minor advisories (enter the reg at check-mot.service.gov.uk) so the new owner will need to apply to the DVLA for a replacement logbook with form V55 (we can provide) and a cheque for £25.
Starting promptly and sounding very much like the V8 that it is, the truck was driven to us from Shrewsbury and was reputed to drive well although we did note that turning the ignition off doesn’t seem to turn the engine off – so something will need looking at there, thus we had to stall it to turn it off.
Presenting generally well for its age and 119,062 miles the truck shows some marks and dings as pictured along with the usual bit of Disco I corrosion in the usual areas (see images) but otherwise looks quite appealing for an earlier V8 Disco, especially at No Reserve so the highest bid takes it home.
