Barn Find 1973 Range Rover Classic Suffix B Lincoln Green
Used 1973 Green
Barn find1973 Suffix B Range Rover Classic U.K. domestic market in Lincoln Green.This Range Rover came with a story.Sold new in the U.K. and driven overland to Singapore. It was then shipped to Australia where it lived for a number of years touring round. While in Australia the 3.5 was swapped for a leyland P76 4.4L V8. and in 1986 it was shipped to New Zealand. I found it in a barn in Central Otago three years ago missing its engine and interiour.Really good solid bones, flys through its six monthly Warrant Of Fitness checks.Has the original optional powersteering boxThe front seats are original Kit-Kat palomino with covers due to the PVC being cracked and broken. I really am undecided on selling this as its such a great vehicle. But I need to buy a house.... So it's time.I have not done a restoration on this, rather just tided up and replaced the missing parts. It's a wonderfully comfortable daily driver and long distance exploration machine. I have taken it all round New Zealand, into some off the beaten track places and its has never let me down. As the original motor was long gone, I have installed a 3.9 V8 and radiator from a 1996 discovery, with a stage three Auckland cam, timbing chain + gears, lifters and new matching valve springs. It also had a Holley Quick Fuel 4bbl 450cfm vac secondary carb, Edelbrock intake manifold and extractors/headers. It goes really well....As mentioned the interiour was missing and I have tried to find as many correct parts as possible, however as many will spot there are a few pieces still incorrect but can be purchased from famous four. The vehicle was sound deadend with Dynamat, underlay and new carpet.It looks as if the vehicle has has a re-paint in the past as this has come off in places revealing the original paint below.To finish this vehicle and make it more original, I would have purchased the missing bits from famour four, and repainted it.As this vehicle is in New Zealand, I will assist serious enquiries with any inspections, pictures, videos and all the info I can. I will also help with arranging shipping.Additional pictures and videos can be found on Instagram @nz_land_rover_adventuresAs with everything 2nd hand, it is up to the purchaser to satisfy themselves of the condition before purchasing. Viewing can be arranged on request. Sold as is where is.
