Of course, we all love a good barn find. But, you know what’s better than finding a decrepit old vehicle in a rundown shack? Seeing that same vehicle after it has been restored and revived — especially when it’s done as expertly as this 1983 Land Rover Series 3 by Cool & Vintage.
When the Portuguese brand got their hands on this classic SUV, it was in ghastly condition, with its front end completely destroyed and the roof stuffed haphazardly into the bed. Luckily, they brought it back to life in exquisite fashion — leaving none of the damage apparent. As you can clearly see, they’ve given her a new and beautiful tangerine orange paint job, which fits perfectly with the blacked-out soft top and matching leather upholstery. The biggest and best surprise, however, is that they dropped a beefy V8 under the hood to keep her going for years to come. Once again, excellent work, C&V.
