Police Range Rover P38 - 1997 4.0 V8 - Greater Manchester Police - Jam Sandwich £5995 ONO

Sellers Cooments 1997 4.0 V8 Auto Range Rover P38 Genuine Greater Manchester Police Motorway Car This wonderful car needs a new home as funds and space are required for my other on going police restoration project. A small fortune has been spent on this P38 at 4W Motors Solihull to ensure that mechanically it really is quite excellent. It has all new air suspension, ball joints, track rod ends, bushes and more underneath. The Auto Box has been serviced and the engine serviced and fettled and is truly superb. It goes like a train and sounds great, as you'd expect a V8 to do. The tyres are brand new, the alloy wheels refurbished, the interior including steering wheel and complete dashboard has been replaced with a clean, fresh one and the headlining is very good indeed. The heated windscreen has been replaced and works a treat. All livery and equipment fitted is to correct period specification, the car retains its calibrated speedometer and the "bells and whistles" do exactly as what you'd expect them to do - I don't think I need to explain! Some kit is, of course, not active such as the radio as you'd expect, the dot matrix requires a handset and the police spec. interior light has yet to be sourced. Whilst beautifully presented as you can see there is, in my somewhat fussy opinion, room for improvement as with any 20 year old car should you so wish - or just enjoy it as it is. The car itself is well known in Range Rover and Classic Police Car circles. It has appeared at the Classic Car Show North West twice and been highly praised - if you do an image search on P572ERJ it has certainly been well photographed over the years that I have owned it. The mileage showing is 108,000 - but this is without any doubt wrong. The MOT expires in late September and the MOT history is available online. A service record from previous civilian owners is not present - which is why I went to town on its servicing! I have the V5 here, it's registered in my name and the car is in storage very near to my home address. The car comes with a "road kit" so that it can be driven legally on the road and all equipment can be isolated quite simply. You are encouraged to view the car, it is located 1 hour from Shrewsbury (A5) and 1 hour 15 minutes from Chester (A55), however I appreciate that in this day and age of the internet this isn't always possible. I welcome any questions and will answer the sensible ones! It will be my absolute pleasure to deliver this car anywhere in the mainland UK for FREE after a sizeable deposit has been received by PayPal or it is paid for in full. The balance will be paid for by direct bank transfer or direct cash deposit, as can the full sum due. I will not accept any other form of payment. This listing is "Buy it Now" or "Best Offer" - please make any offers through eBay. All eBay rules apply and the car is listed elsewhere. (Note to eBay: This car is a vintage vehicle. The livery is no longer in use and all equipment whilst being rendered out of use on sale is none the less obsolete - thank you.)
