It benefits from an upgraded 2.5 N/A engine, which in our opinion is a sensible conversion for extra power and economy. 30 mpg is easily achievable with a satisfying pull through each gear, making this indeed a superb towing vehicle. A new battery makes it start at the turn of the key with no issues having received a full AB 4x4s Cleveland health check and service. During this time a new radiator and hoses were installed for peace of mind.
Stopping is now a pleasure thanks to the new brakes all round with the added benefit of a servo. It has been subject to a restoration which involved many hours of labour to bring this vintage Land Rover back its former glory. Mentioned in the paragraphs below are some of the works we completed.
We fitted a recon gearbox, at the same time installing a full new Bearmach clutch kit. We then went onto replace both front and rear propshafts for brand new ones.
A new Bearmach exhaust was also fitted. Whilst underneath we replaced front and rear transfer output oil seals. We replaced both front and rear diff housing gaskets and transfer box seal.This will drop less oil than most for sure! It has had recent parabolic springs for a softer ride with our addition of 4 brand new shock absorbers. Chassis is now solid after some attention to the usual areas, completed to our high standard.
This was needle gunned to remove rust then undersealed to preserve it in future years. Bodywork is now fantastic, as can be seen in the photos. Rear tub is one of the straightest I've seen. We have just sprayed it in 2 pack bronze green after many hours of body prep and filler primer to achieve our renowned exceptional finish.All cappings and windscreen have been regalvanised. Which we think really do add the finishing touch to this Land rover. We even removed the seat frames to be regalvanised. We have installed a full new Exmoor trim hood and sticks. Full glazed doors, door hinges and screws, Exmoor trim elephant hide seats, galvanised seat belt brackets, 3 front seat belt bumpers, door seals, vent seals, wing mirrors, all lights, front grill, handles, heavy duty front mats, galvanised and powder coated number plate bracket, new period number plates, new brakes, etc etc. All in all a very desirable vehicle that will turn heads, yet still an every day vehicle for all seasons.
We can add rear seats on request. For a test drive, further info or just friendly advice please call Anthony on 01287654333 or 07947608966.
