SOTW: LAND ROVER DISCOVERY V8
Shed gets its Disco on. Flared jumpsuit optional
Underneath, the Discovery was in fact largely based on the Range Rover; it used its big brother's ladder-frame chassis, and even the venerable Rover V8 (although Rover was initially reluctant to give the Discovery the Range Rover's fuel injection).
It all worked pretty well - getting positive reviews in the press and selling in big numbers. These days, cheap Series 1 Discoveries are generally a bit tatty, a victim of either a life as a family workhorse, or as a recreational mud-plugger. This one looks like it might have seen service as the former, especially as it's the seven-seat version. It looks pretty tidy, however, with a reasonable 93,000 miles on the clock.
