CLO 589Y – 1983 Series 3 109 Stage 1 V8 “Utility”
This Land Rover first came to our attention when we purchased it back in 2010.,
It started life as a Russet Brown 12 seater county station wagon – believed to have been delivered new to Wadham Striungers and sold to Harrier films in NW London and was at one time used to ferry around the cast and crew on the 1986 film “Full Metal Jacket”.
By 2010 the Land Rover had undergone a full nut and bolt rebuild (photographic records included) – which included a conversion to a “Utility” 109 (rear load area kept clear for camping, and rear windows blanked off). The rebuild was meticulous and included a new galvanised chassis, galvanised bulkhead, galvanised “B” posts and freshly galvanised “Cappings” – along with many other galvanised items.
The Land Rover at this time was resprayed Limestone and a set of uber rare 1 Tonne IIB Forward control rims (569203 – 93mm deep dish) were fitted.
We are very pleased to have the opportunity to offer this Land Rover for sale once again, and can report that in 2015 the Land Rover had over £10,000 spent (bills available) to supply and fit a remanufactured RPi engineering stage 1 4.6 litre V8 engine with piper 270 cam, along with complete new ignition system, Edlebrock inlet manifold and Weder 500 carb kit. The gearbox was also stripped and reconditioned at the same time.
In 2016 the Land Rover was also fitted with Metatrak GPS tracking system, cat 2 immobiliser and Bluetooth speakers.
It also features a set of 6 Exmoor trim seats.
