    Recently, I have seen a white R Reg 2 door discovery 1 around locally in London a few times. It is a left hand drive type so presumably an export model originally.

    From what I have read, the 2 doors were only made for the first few years. Were they produced later for export markets?

    It seemed unusual to see a 2 door registered that late.

    Pretty sure they did 3 dr all the way through d1 production. Certainly for commercials anyway

    That is correct on the info u have, the 300 series was originally configured either 3 door or 5 door.
    As always when an imported vehicle is registered in the UK it will have a plate relating to the model year, so in your case it’s a 1997 MY.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The vehicle I have been seeing has rear seats and windows. It is not a commercial type.

    I had read that the two door models with rear seats were discontinued in 1990. Is that incorrect?

    Yes, and in two ways. There is no 2 door Discovery of any description ;) - and the 3 door models were made up about 98..... SWMBO has one of the last ones, and it is appreciating nicely;)
