1977 RHD Range Rover 2 Door Suffix D — K2C with KINGSLEY FULLY BLENDED A/C — now Sold


Vehicle Description

A stunning 'future proofed' restoration of a Suffix D Range Rover 2 Door available now with the benefit of Kingsley Modern Air Conditioning system.

We took a very nice Range Rover which had lived most of its life in central Paris, dismantled it fully to the bodyshell, took it back to bare metal, cut out all of the corrosion, seamlessly butt welded new metal in, rubberised the high impact areas in order to protect it from corroding in the future and then painted the shell in two pack direct gloss Bahama Gold.

The chassis, axles and running gear was media blasted to bare metal and refinished in Rustbusters award-winning ExpoxyMastic 121 which is exceptionally durable.

The alloy outer body panels were taken back to bare metal, had all signs of corrosion removed with new alloy sections seamlessly TIG welded in, panel beaten, the insides rubberised to stop alloy to steel contact, slowing electrolytic corrosion and then painted in Bahama Gold. The exterior of the outer panels were then straightened and painted to a very high standard.

We Aquablast cleaned and fully rebuilt the engine, the carbs, the gearbox/transfer box, axles and replaced the whole of the braking system including lines, master and slave cylinder, calipers, discs, and pads. Replaced the fuel tank, pump and fuel lines. Restored the Rostyle wheels, fitting new tubes and tyres.

The whole of the interior has been retrimmed in the correct period Palomino PVC, the roof lining remade as well as the door cards, spare wheel and tool cover - it's really quite a special car!

This Kingsley K2 Classic was built as Kingsley's Show Car for Salon Prive and Land Rover Legends 2019 and represents the standard specification of the K2C.

This car was built from an exceptional 2 Door Range Rover Classic (RRC) which had spent most of its life in a private garage off Place Vendome in Paris 1st Arrondissement.

The car was totally dismantled with every single nut, bolt, and part either replaced or refurbished. Every trace of corrosion throughout the bodyshell and panels was located, cut out and new metal seamlessly welded with the surfaces dressed so that it is impossible to see the repair.

Once the repairs were completed the shell was removed from the chassis and fully bare metalled. The underside and high impact areas were fully protected in rubberised corrosion protectant and painted over and when re-assembled fiber washers were installed to slow corrosion.

The engine is a blue-printed 3500cc with new ancillaries and carburetors mated to a LT95 4-speed manual gearbox. At the same time, we fitted our new A/C system which comprises of a completely new heater box that blends, dried air-conditioned air, distributing it through the original vents keeping the cabin cool or warm whilst stopping it from misting.

All of our full restorations are fully safety checked prior to delivery, have a fresh MOT test, and are covered by our ​‘Kingsley Warranty Promise’ which is a minimum of 6 Month parts and labour with unlimited claims to the 60% of the value of the vehicle. More details here.
