History This truck was imported from Guatemala in January 2021. The owners drove it the roughly 2,000 miles from Guatemala to Austin, Texas. Despite coming from Central America, this is a true UK export, and not a CKD assembled Range Rover. It was originally imported by the Land Rover dealership in Guatemala City. The first owner was a Spanish national who worked for a time in Guatemala, as a pulp mill manager.
The mill was located in Zacapo, Guatemala, which is one of the driest regions in Central America. The Range Rover spent the majority of its like in that same dry region, occasionally making treks to the upper peaks of the Sierra de las Minas to survey timber projects.The third owner, who brought the car to us, lived in and used the car around Antigua. He had an extensive frame-off refurbishment done, including an engine rebuild. It was kept as close to original as possible, with the exception of the addition of power steering. Most parts used came from Famous Four. Mechanics Features a 3.5L V8 engine. Odometer shows 75,250 kms, but true mileage is unknown because it is a five digit odometer. It starts up immediately, even after it has been sitting, and in cold temperatures.
It drives, shifts and brakes well, and maintains its temperature. It was recently driven about 2,000 miles from Guatemala to Texas without any breakdowns.
