Land Rover Range Rover Classic 1971-1994
Land Rover enthusiasts will know and love the charm of the classic Range Rover, which was produced from 1971 to 1994. It was initially produced by Rover, which was a division of British Leyland, a UK automotive brand that is an integral part of British motoring history.
The original Range Rover Classic was first available as a two-door only model, adding a four-door version later on in 1981. The 4X4 premise of the vehicle of course made it the go-to for anyone regularly off-roading - it was marketed as ‘the car for all reasons’, and was used as such by many, from farmers to families!

VW BEETLE FAQs
Are VW Beetle parts expensive?
One of the most frequently asked questions for classic car enthusiasts considering a VW Beetle project, is how much are VW Beetle parts? The good news is, as a well-established classic Volkswagen specialist selling VW Beetle parts, we are perfectly placed to offer an answer.
The VW Beetle was produced in huge numbers between 1938 and 1979 in Germany and continued to be manufactured in Mexico until 2003, and this means parts are in plentiful supply. With quantity generally comes a favourable price, and so to help your project buying decision you’ll be pleased to hear VW Beetle parts are relatively cheap.
Which VW Beetles are difficult to find parts for?
Some Beetles are more difficult to find parts for than others. Typically, older cars are harder to source genuine VW Beetle parts for. If you are working on a fifties Split or Oval window Beetle it will be considerably more expensive and trickier to buy parts for than if you own a sixties or seventies vehicle, which are better supported by aftermarket manufacturers and suppliers.
Owners of vintage Volkswagens will often source the hard-to-find Beetle parts at VW shows and swap meets, either as good used items or New Old Stock items which were made in the period and still brand new. We are able to supply many NOS VW parts thanks to our partnership with VW Classic Parts.
What parts fit on all years VW Beetles?
The VW Beetle is modular in the sense that many parts from earlier years will bolt onto the later vehicles. Backdating is the art of making something newer appear older than it is, and in the case of the VW Beetle an owner can make their late 90’s Mexican-built Beetle look like a sixties car just by switching the body panels over. We have covered this in more detail on our blog here.
With regards to actual parts that remained on the VW Beetle from day 1 until the end of production. We believe the only part would be the engine line seal channel, and even that is shaped to fit each version of the Beetle in a different way. Except for the Super Beetle models, the engineering principles of the Beetle remained very similar from 1938 through to 2003.
What are the structural parts of the VW Beetle?
The VW Beetle is designed with a separate chassis and body, so the two can be unbolted and removed from each other for restoration work, or to fit an alternative body such as a Beach Buggy. On the Beetle chassis, there are several key structural components that are integral to the safety and operation of the vehicle. There is a central spine that connects the gearbox mounts to the front frame head, where the axle attaches. On either side of this spine is a floor pan half. It is upon these that the seats are mounted, so they must be solid. To the front of the floor pan is a chassis support section sometimes referred to as ‘Napoleon’s Hat’ because of its shape. To the rear of the floor pans are rear cross-members, one on each side of the spine.
The body is mounted to the chassis with bolts fastened by captive nuts in the cross members and through bolts and chassis washers which are tightened upwards through the edge of the floor pan halves and into the underside of the heater channels. The heater channels are a key structural part of the bodyshell, as they form the lower part of the door aperture. Rust is commonplace here and must be dealt with correctly, including the bracing of the door openings and shell before heater channels can be cut out and replaced. Front and rear inner wheel arches are another common rust trap, as is the spare wheel well and both front and rear valance panels.
