Whilst a Classic Land Rover® may not drive as well as a modern car, the major benefits are that your asset will appreciate in value, not depreciate.

In addition to this, many of the vehicles we sell require no MOT, are free from road tax and extremely cheap to insure. In short, customers prefer to have a Vintage Land Rover® on their drive rather than cash in the bank and a poor rate of interest.

Another beauty of Classic Land Rover® ownership is simplicity – all our vehicles do not have ECU’s or complicated electronics. This means they can be fixed quickly and cheaply, at almost any competent garage.

Let’s face it – ‘Vintage Cool’ is very much in – and there is nothing cooler than a Classic Land Rover®… they turn more heads than anything on the road!

At John Brown 4×4, all our Classic Land Rovers® come with an in-house, guaranteed 3000 mile warranty (or 3 months, whichever the sooner). This is a major mechanical warranty for your peace of mind – covering all major parts such as the engine, gearbox, axles, transfer box – to name a few!

We are able to provide servicing and MOT services for previous customers only. We can also assist in getting Vintage Land Rover® parts for those in harder to reach locations.

Our warranty can be viewed in full on the ‘How to Buy’ Page of our website.
