1996 Land Rover Discovery Series 1, 300 TDi, 2495cc automatic. Registration number P32 XRH. Chassis number SALLJGM73VA542535. Engine number unknown.
The Discovery Series I was conspicuously presented during the 1989 Frankfurt Motor Show was strongly based on the more upmarket Range Rover, using the same chassis, suspension and 4WD-system. It was Land Rover's first model that was positioned as a family car, designed to be both fully off-road capable, and suitable as a daily driver for any family, even offering more luggage space, and optionally more seats than the Range Rover.
At launch, the Discovery was only available as a three-door model, but the five-door version followed the next year, in 1990. Both were fitted with five seats, with the option to have two jump seats fitted in the boot. Compared to the Range Rover, the Discovery was given a slightly longer rear, which was further extended on the series II. In order to make room for optional third row jump seats, the spare wheel had to move to the outside of the car, fitted to a side-swinging rear door, instead of the Range Rover's split tailgate. The roof of the rear section of the car was raised, to create sufficient headroom in the third row. Combined with a safari side window cluster, this gave the Discovery its own distinct look and profile. The Conran Design Group designed the interior. In 1994 the 300TDi engine was introduced
XRH is a Japanese market example that has enjoyed one family ownership since import in 2006 when the mileage was some 60,000KM. It comes with a very detailed history listing all works undertaken, including two timing belts and regular waxolying. The most recent MOT was at 143,000 and is current until May 2022.
Sold with the V5C, two keys, current MOT, MOT history, folder of receipts, this well cared for Disco would appear to have a lot of life still in it for the next custodian.
