1989 Early Land Rover Discovery G603 WAC Post Launch For Sale

G603 WAC Land Rover Discovery 200Tdi.
Regrettably due to ill health I offer my early Discovery for sale.
603 is a post launch vehicle first registered early January 1990 and has a very interesting history. She was the first Discovery to be issued as a company car but also as a test mule for the R380 gearbox, all other early 200s have the LT box until the 300 is introduced in 1994. She was issued to and owned by William Morris of Land Rover (engineering director) and he owned the vehicle for over 20 years. Fully stamped up Lode Lane service book and every receipt from new. When only a few months old 603 suffered a accident whilst towing for a Land Rover event, rather than fix a damaged body Mr Morris got a new shell from LR stores and re-shelled the whole vehicle! Receipt and corresponding paperwork is included.

Since my ownership in the last 9 years she has undergone quite extensive welding & restoration work comprising of new panels and metalwork from bulkhead to rear of vehicle, ie, boot floor, side panels, inner wing work and passenger compartment repair panels. Also some body mounts were replaced. Whilst stripped out the chassis was treated in areas not normally able to access.

Although 603 is solid she is starting to show her age body wise and would benefit from going into body shop and maybe going back to her original colour (silver) She was given the Camel Livery by previous owner, also a early Discovery enthusiast. She has not been in the hands of the 'off roader' fraternity and has been always cared for.
