1970-1986 Range Rover US - Grey Market import


Range Rover was intended to be sold in US when it was introduced in June 1970. An article in 
Road & Track, Sept. 1970, told that a US launch was planned mid-year 1971 with options like 
tinted glass, air conditioning and, if ready; automatic transmission, to a base price of $ 5,300.  

But, British Leyland did not launch the new Range Rover on the US market, despite that the 
development of Range Rover was with the American market in focus. Both due to lack of financials 
and production capacity delayed official Range Rover organized import to US to 1987.

An article in Canadian Driving, Sept. 1974, told that CKD Range Rover assembly were done in 
Venezuela and Costa Rica, but no export to US or Canada. It was hoped that UK export to Canada
could start in 1977 when higher production capacity was planned, but 10 more years should go.
                                                                                                                                                        'Grey Market' import of Range Rover's to US during 70's and 80's
Land-Rover Series III were imported in US, but decline in sales and new smog regulations resulted 
that British Leyland withdraw themselves from the US market in 1974. From early 70's until official
US launch in 1987 there were a steady, but tiny stream of US 'Grey Market' Range Rover imports.

Wolfshead Inc., Century City, CA also import company of exotic vehicles like Ferrari Boxer,
BMW M1 and Lamborghini Countach, sold Range Rover's from 1979 to a price of $29,500.

Automotive Compliance Inc. (ACI), Harbor City, CA imported the Range Rover's from UK dealers,
made them smog legal certified to American smog laws by installing three-way catalytic converter,
an air injection pump and a charcoal canister to capture evaporating fuel. Because the vehicles are
considered as used before import, the process is much lenient and less expensive than if the manufacturer should do the import. 
By eliminating the center muffler and installing the catalytic converter the back pressure was reduced 
and more pleasant exhaust rumble sound than original UK derivative. ACI estimated that the power 
output was 10% lower with the catalytic installed.
In 1980 ACI hoped to import 50 Range Rover's per year and sold them through dealers in Houston, Texas; Miami, Florida; Chicago, Illinois and Harbor City, California.

Driven by a heritage of exploration and adventure, Range Rover accepted one of the most grueling challenges...a 1,123 mile journey across the magnificent Continential Divide from Wyoming to 
New Mexico.
 
From August 21 to September 2, 1989, the expedition made history as it successfully completed 
the first continuous North-South crossing of Colorado's Continental Divide by motor vehicle. Eight production Range Rovers climbed mountain peaks of 14,000 feet, crawled across jagged rock beds 
and negotiated perilous mountain passes, at times covering just 60 miles in 10 hours.
 
Truly an American adventure, the expedition saw our country much as it was generations ago...
unspoiled, majestic. 
                                                                                                                                                                     Range Rover Great Divide expedition press photo
 
The Great Divide Expedition members drove back in time through ghost towns that were once 
booming centers of the Wild West. They envisioned the fortunes, losses, hopes and dreams...
of the prospectors and early pioneers. 
A part of that history is preserved in the commemorative Great Divide Edition. 
This vehicle is now available to a select few who wish to share in the experience.



Capturing the true spirit of adventure, the limited production Great Divide Edition Range Rover proudly reflects its breeding and heritage. This special edition commemorates Range Rover's historical trek along the Continental Divide, testimony to the legendary exploits of its stablemate, Land Rover.


The 1991 model Great Divide Edition was created for the special few who wish to share in history, 
as well as for those with an inherent desire to explore. Distinguished by pure Alpine White finish,
each of these 400 special edition Great Divide vehicles carries a distinctive tailgate insignia which          Range Rover Great Divide special edition limited to 400 vehicles
marks its unique identity. An individually numbered brass door badge confirms exclusivity.


The Great Divide Edition comes equipped with an "expedition-style" front bumper brush bar and rear
tail lamp protectors designed to safeguard lights, grille and radiator from off-road obstructions. 
specially designed front spoiler provides additional approach angle clearance for off-road travel. 
Smoke grey five-spoke alloy wheels afford aesthetic as well as practical value.


The exquisite interior demonstrates Range Rover's unparalleled ability to combine comfort and style 
with strength and durability. True to tradition, each Great Divide Edition features polished American 
walnut appointments and sport-textured Connolly leather seats. The CD compatible AM/FM stereo 
radio and cassette provides listening pleasure wherever the road leads. And the power sunroof invites 
occupants to experience nature to its fullest.


With a heritage of exploration and adventure, the vehicle that made its mark for the first time in 
American history is available for a select few to experience.


An individually numbered brass door badge confirms the exclusivity of each Great Divide Edition vehicle.

                                                                                                                                                          Brass badge with unique number from 001 to 400 on door edge
"Expedition-style" front bumper brush bar safeguards lights and grille from off-road obstructions and 
features a specially designed front spoiler.

 
Distinctive smoke grey five-spoke wheels are as attractive as they are practical, reducing the chance 
for build up of mud and debris.
 
The Great Divide Edition features polished American walnut appointments and sport-textured Connolly leather seats. A state-of-the-art audio system provides ultimate listening pleasure while the power sunroof opens wide and invites occupants to experience nature at its fullest.

From 1990 RRNA publication:
RANGE ROVER OWNERS ARE RATHER EXCEPTIONAL PEOPLE
 
As the manufacturer and distributor of Range Rovers, the world's foremost four-wheel drive vehicles, 
we recognize our responsibility for the preservation of our environment, not only for today's users, 
but also for future generations. This responsibility extends to cultivating an awareness and caring attitude among our customers.
 
In conjunction with the United States Forest Service, Range Rover encourages our owners to support the Tread Lightly! program. Tread Lightly! was developed by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau 
of Land Management as an educational program to encourage safe, environmentally responsible off-road vehicle use.
 
Whether you are traversing public or private lands, we urge you to follow our code of ethics and safety suggestions outlined in the following pages. These notes concisely convey what our owner's manual and off-road driving tapes detail.
 
BUCKLE UP FOR SECURITY.













RANGE ROVER URGES YOU TO TREAD LIGHTLY!
 
There are currently more than 200,000 miles of off-highway roads open to the public in the United States. The U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management have created an educational program, Tread Lightly!, to urge safe, environmentally responsible use of these trails.
 
In recent years, ever-growing numbers of off-road enthusiasts have increased the potential for damage 
to vegetation, soil, water, wildlife and the solitude afforded by these areas. The challenge of maintaining 
the availability of these natural wonders falls to all users.
 
Tread Lightly! distributes educational materials to public schools, civic organizations, four-wheel drive 
groups and hunter safety programs. Many corporations, including Range Rover, have embraced the 
Tread Lightly! credo as their own and promote it through advertising and educational programs designed 
especially for their customers.
 
To demonstrate our support and promote the Tread Lightly! program, Range Rover and several 
co-sponsoring companies undertook the monumental task of traversing Colorado's Continental Divide. 
In August 1989, for 12 days, the Range Rover Great Divide Expedition wound its way over 1,123 miles 
of the Continental Divide, from Wyoming to New Mexico, using only approved forest roads. 
 
Tread Lightly! representatives participated and educated the expedition members along the challenging 
and breathtaking route.
 
Range Rover urges all of our owners to familiarize themselves with Tread Lightly! principles and to be 
considerate of the future of our public lands.



RANGE ROVER'S FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE CODE OF ETHICS

1. Know and follow State and Federal laws governing the use of public lands.

2. Obey restrictions on use of public lands and always obtain permission prior to driving on private 
    property. Respect land owner's privacy

3. Resist the urge to pioneer new trails. The scars they create can mar the landscape for many

4. Respect wildlife. Stop and observe, but never disturb or chase animals.

5. Maintain a clean, unpolluted environment and remove any abandoned debris you may encounter.
 
6. Be considerate of others' privacy, but offer assistance to those in need.

7. Keep your vehicle in good running condition.
 
8. Travel with another vehicle to remote areas and always carry water, food, fuel and spare tires on 
    excursions.

9. Make sure your vehicle's exhaust doesn't create sparks and be aware of potential fire hazards.

10 Enjoy the freedom afforded by your Range Rover, but leave the environment undisturbed for 
    future generations to appreciate.




Tread Lightly! today:
Tread Lightly!
 
Land Rover is a founding member of Tread Lightly!®—an organization dedicated to increasing public awareness of and encouraging responsible outdoor practices. 
Together, we're helping off-roaders enjoy and respect the environment.
 
For more information, please visit www.TreadLightly.org 
  







TREAD LIGHTLY! RESPONSIBLE OUTDOOR RECREATION
 
Land Rover have worked with Tread Lightly! in the USA for twenty years. Tread Lightly! is a nonprofit organization with a mission to promote responsible outdoor recreation through ethics education and stewardship. The program's goal is to balance the needs of the people who enjoy outdoor recreation 
with our need to maintain a healthy environment.
 
The Tread Lightly! Pledge: 
 
- Travel and recreate with minimum impact
- Respect the environment and the rights of others
- Educate yourself, plan and prepare before you go
- Allow for future use of the outdoors, leave it better than you found it
- Discover the rewards of responsible recreation
 
Tread Lightly!'s educational messages are communicated via guidebooks, quick-tip brochures, a hunting education curriculum, an online awareness course, how-to videos, teaching materials, and a line of children's materials.
 
Tread Trainer is a nationally recognized training course to produce volunteer instructors of the Tread 
Lightly! ethic all over the country.
 
The Restoration for Recreation program is designed to keep the great outdoors healthy and accessible 
by providing much needed resources for backlogged maintenance.
