Driving home from wales today in the “boring” car (although it did very well) and spotted this on the M6...... soft top, left hand drive and looked in mint condition!! Made me smile

Many "soft top / convertable" RRC have been made over the years.

Here in France you see them from time to time.

Nice one that is.

I see several here in Dubai.  I also see a few restored Classics here.  I would think Wood And Pickett did such conversions.

I've seen many pictures of convertible RRCs over the years.

The 70's and 80's were a boom time for a number of specialist converters of Range Rovers. As Nick has said, there was Wood and Pickett, but also Vantagefield, Townley Cars to name a few.

Extra axles, garish interiors, soft tops and hunting specials were popular; oh and 4 door models before LR or Monteverdi got on the case. I believe a large majority were converted for wealthy customers from the Arab countries.

At LR Legends, Bicester, this year Bishop were showing an open back RRC in red they had fully restored. Originally resident in France. Did not have a soft top at the show but perhaps that is it, prepared for the UK. Cannot remember whose it was .Checked on Bishops website, theirs is brown, there is a picture of it. The red RRC was restored from bottom up, but it was in as new condition, came from Far East I think.
