Yep! It's a pre 1980 Range Rover - probably 1978 or so. Look at the grill and bumper.

And a 2 door at that! Going to take a lot of $$$ and time to get her back into shape. Unless there are emotions attached, is it worth it?

not sure of the exact model however its an old one
the low bonnet is original in all aspects (in perfect running conditions but gives only 2-3 mileage)and has also got the original engine petrol.
the other willy s (non low bonnet) is a restored one and has a Peugeot diesel engine.
