This is the one you’ve been waiting for.

A superb Simon Durant full restoration but not to be confused with all those that have been finished so recently that the paint is still not dry (miaow!). This is a more mature restoration which has the added piquancy of a delightful patina.

And, not only was it restored by Simon to his usual high standards, but it was also owned by him at the time, so you can imagine that he was extra fastidious in bringing her back to a better than new factory standard 50th Anniversary with no expense spared.

In addition, it is one of the somewhat rarer 50ths on a 1999 ‘T’ plate rather than the more numerous 1998 ‘S’ plates. Its (original) registration number of T63 BSO complements the edition number of GB 063.
Under Simon’s hand, GB 063 had the following:

• A full respray
• Re-powder coated Roll Cage
• Re-powder coated NAS rear step
• Re-powder coated steering guard
• New bumper
• New A bar
• New head lamp surrounds
• New radiator grill
• New chequered plate Wing tops, Sides, Rear 1/4s and NAS step
• New rear fog light
• New reversing light
• New number plate light
• New rubbers on all windows
• New windscreen
• New sliding rear windows
• Tip top Seats from another 50th
• New tyres
• Refurbished alloys
• New pads and discs
• Replaced manifolds and gaskets
• stainless steel bolts on all door hinges even the front air vent hinges
• New stainless steel bulkhead bolts
• New stainless steel bumper bolts front and rear
• New rear seat stainless steel bolts
• 1001 other new stainless bolts
• New mud flaps front and rear
• New shocks front and rear
• New steering damper
• Wax oiled
• New exhaust system from the cat back
• New 50th V8 decals

As luck would have it, after Simon’s ownership, it fell into the hands of another real enthusiast who set about making it even better by fitting:

• A Mark Adams chip
• A Mantec swing away spare wheel carrier
• Silicone hoses
• Original Land Rover driving lamps
• Aluminium front door hinges
• Chrome rear door and bonnet hinges
• Chrome air intake
• Croytec aluminium instrument surrounds
• Under bonnet detailing

The car has covered just under 89,000 miles with a full service history. Services have been carried out at 6000, 12164, 23,967, 35876, 40000, 45937, 49562, 56311, 67515, 72000, 80909 and 85000 miles, all of which are stamped in the Service Record. Since then, services are evidenced by invoices at 86500, 87195, 88273 and 88897 miles.

GB 063 is offered for sale at £42,000 which represents great value for money for what is one of the best 50ths around.

It will show exclusively on this Forum for a period before widening to the usual places.

No takers so far, not even a cheeky offer! So, now on Ebay as an auction listing. Plenty of 'watchers' but no-one brave enough yet to start the bidding.

Just back from annual service and has new MOT with no advisories until 15 July 2017.

Go on, you know you want to!
