30 Years of Range Rover: 30th Anniversary. Only 200 examples of this unique P38 were produced.
Range Rover, an iconic design. Immediately upon its introduction in 1969, the luxurious and extremely comfortable off-road vehicle was a great success. The model was delivered for no less than 27 years. From 1994, the first model was renamed Range Rover Classic, as its successor was introduced; the P38A. Named after the project name Pegasus, built in Block 38A, Solihull.
The P38 was produced up to and including 2002. Relatively short, making it a relatively rare model. Good copies are now becoming scarce. Reliable classics, great travel cars. Reviled by those who are either unfamiliar with it or acquainted only with the poorly maintained examples, often driven by avarice. Where do we recognize that from? Exactly, our other hobby; Jaguar.
All right, let’s go to this P38; extremely rare, because 30th Anniversary. Range Rover was now 30 years old and to celebrate that, the 30th Anniversary was designed. Only 200 units were produced, reportedly 100 left-hand drive and 100 right-hand drive. Finished in Wimbledon Green, exclusive to the 30th Anniversary. Bumpers and mirror caps were also matching, something you only saw on the Autobiography models at that time.
And then that interior; wonderful! Classic Green leather with a Lightstone piping. The steering wheel is also available in these two colours, also unique to the Anniversary models. And then that delicious Burr Maple wood. Real wood and therefore real craftmanship.
The sattelite navigation system was optionally available. This Anniversary is equipped with that, the system has been restored by us and works perfectly! Useful? Not anymore today. Beautiful and fun? Of course! In my opinion it should work and so no savings were made here either, but renovated and repaired.
After the previous owner, a real enthusiast, had already partly tackled the Range Rover technically, we bought it. Everything was done immediately to take the already beautiful and well-maintained Range Rover to an even higher level; Headlining was replaced because hanging, now beautiful alcantara. The sunroof was repaired and, of course, major, major maintenance was carried out.
The list of tasks is endless. Wonderful to do, if you ask me. Even the heavy chrome emblem on the back of the boot lid has been brought back to color, details are important. The steering wheel in top condition, the full Alpine sound system in order, the amplifier working. Typical P38 things such as blend motors, O-rings heater, air suspension and the like have all been addressed, no worries but pure enjoyment. Replace all fluids, including in the diffs. Just look them up, P38 in this condition, let alone an Anniversary.
I myself have now driven 5,000 kilometers. Daily, in addition to the Discovery for the heavier work such as the trailer. Hassle-free and reliable, as it should be. Is that possible with a P38? Yes you can, if maintained.
Quality and maintenance, that’s what it’s all about. I could go on and on about this Range Rover, but there is no space for that in an advertisement text. Take a look at the photos and be surprised about the condition and the appearing of this P38 30th Anniversary.
To keep it complete, I will list all the negatives here, if there are any: Hardly visible in the photo, but the woodwork around the window controls shows some cracks. If I have found the right person to restore this, it will be addressed, but I make no promises. Seat heating does not work. For this, the upholstery would have to be removed, with all the associated risks, so I will leave that as is.
There is still a lot to say about this 30th Anniversary, but of course you only get a good picture when you look at the car and drive it. you are very welcome in Oirschot, the coffee is ready.
