Completely original from new.
The customer particularly wanted a V8 to add to his Landrover collection..
He wanted it to be restored back to its exact original specification with the addition of a galvanised chassis for longevity a steering guard to protect the underside of the vehicle whist off road and a NAS step for towing and helping gain access to the rear seats.
The customer also chose to have the original rostyle white wheels refurbished and fitted with new tyres.
The landrovers body was removed and the chassis replaced with a brand new OE galvanised chassis. The rear axle was replaced to give the vehicle all round disc brakes.
The body was completely stripped and each part individually painted to the original colour, Alaska White. Three new doors were added and painted along with all the door hinges and windscreen hinges. The bulkhead was fully repaired and painted, the footwells were replaced, the front grill, headlamp bezels and spats were colour coded as per original specification.
The body was fitted onto the rolling chassis, once the body was complete the original interior was fully cleaned, refurbished and refitted.
The original headlining was re-covered to be an exact replica of the now rare (Teddy Bear) fluffy style.
The customer chose to keep the original seats showing the patina rather than have new seats fitted and also the original steering wheel.
The engine and gearbox were fully inspected and any necessary parts replaced ie: clutch, radiator, fuel pump and a full mechanical check carried out.
