What an amazing rig! It looks so modern for 1974! I have never seen a 2-door version, is that big black vertical panel on the door the handle?

Love these things. This is all the SUV you'll ever need. Proportions are great, and the early ones are actually very pretty. Love the two door, and the dual headlight front grill.
I'm pretty sure this isn't a '74. For one, they weren't imported until the late eighties. A quick glance at Wikipedia shows that the diesel didn't come along until 1986...Or is this an updated '74?

Personally imported, personally updated, yes!

British plates still on and right hand steering wheel, obviously private import.

But a nice car, although a gas guzzler by modern standards (esp. if with petrol engine).

Gas guzzler with a TDI? It will get better MPG than a Suburu Outback with the Land Rover 200 or 300TDI in it. And it doesn't burn gas, it burns diesel or bio-diesel (No CO2 output).

It's imported, it's Right Hand Drive and its registration plates show it was originally registered in the Preston (probably Leyland, possibly owned by the parent company) area of UK. It will have a 3528 cc V8, the design of which was originally the 215 ci Buick engine of the early 60's
