1990 RANGE ROVER CLASSIC 6.8 680CS - FULLY RESTORED For Sale
1990 RANGE ROVER OVERFINCH 680 CS 5 door ONE OF ONE
This very special Overfinch was commissioned to commemorate 20 years in the performance Range Rover Business.
The CS stands for celebration special, and was built to represent the pinnacle of Overfinch engineering.
Anybody familiar with Classic Overfinch Range Rovers will know that most of these vehicles were supplied with a 570ci chevy small block engine and automatic transmission. The car differs somewhat having a 6.8 litre hand built Chevy and Borg Warner 5 speed manual transmission. This is a very impressive engine developing 420 bhp and 0-60 in less than six seconds.
Over a 5 year period from 1996 to 2001 this vehicle had £60000 expenditure to create the unique vehicle that you see before you.
£48000 was spent in 1996 carrying out the full OVERFINCH conversion . This included the following:
6.8 litre chevy small block engine installed
uprated axle half shafts
extra large vented front brakes
ride and handling suspension stage 2
precision steering conversion
quick ratio steering box

In addition to this the then owner had the engine fully overhauled in 2001 to the tune of £12000
We have copies of all the relevant invoices for the above listed works.
We have recently purchased the vehicle after it has stood for the last three years as the previous owner had moved overseas and no longer has time for the car.
Due to the unique nature of the car - (this is one of only 2 6.8 cars they ever produced according to OVERFINCH, the other car was a RHD automatic which has since had the engine removed due to total failure so this is the only surviving 6.8 in the world), the car is currently undergoing a full nut and bolt no expense spared restoration by a local Range Rover specialist .
The car has been stripped to a bare chassis and shell and is being rebuilt to an unbelievably high specification. We have been approached by a couple of magazines who are wishing to follow the restoration process such is the rare nature of this car.
The chassis has been stripped right back and any bad metal/corrosion removed and replaced, it has then be fully treated and coated with four coats of westminster grey paint before being lacquered ensure a quality finish far superior to the original.
The body has also been removed from the chassis with all common corrosive panels either repaired or replaced, we have replaced the following: boot floor, footwells, inner wings, inner and outer sills and spare wheel well. the roof has also been removed from the body and has been painted separately to ensure a quality finish as it is much more difficult to prepare and polish the roof when in situ due to its sheer size.
This car is as as new now. The following works have also been carried out:
Interior fully retrimmed - the RECARO seats have been recovered in tan leather as well as the door cards have been retried in leather as opposed to the plastic of the originals including the armrests with a contrasting leather insert (looks amazing)
