This 1983 Series III station wagon comes with an original fire extinguisher and sits on an original chassis, although the rear crossmember and an outrigger have been replaced. It comes with free-wheeling hubs, an the head was skimmed and the engine reconditioned in 2014.
Stage 1 V8 hard tops such as this 1980 model are becoming increasingly scarce. It’s believed to have its original engine, gearbox and bulkhead, making this an increasingly precious collector’s piece, as well as a fun workhorse. Mileage is only 62,000 – thought to be correct – the MoT lasts until October, and recent brake and clutch components are fitted.
But perhaps the most eye-catching Land Rover on offer is this 1982 Range Rover ‘Harrods’ by Wood and Pickett. Originally offered for sale at Harrods, it comes with W&P’s signature horizontal grille, plus a lavish and, er, ‘bold’ interior, complete with retro TV in the back. This vehicle was released from Gaydon’s collection in 2003 and reached £6325 (incl premium) at auction, but times have changed, Range Rover Classic values are booming. It hasn’t moved in the intervening years – in fact it’s covered 187 miles since 1998!
Three other Range Rover Classics and four other Series Land Rovers are coming under the hammer. See the Brightwells catalogue for the full selection.
