Looking for a Land Rover-related reason to attend the Silverstone Classic from 29-31 July? We just found you one. Fergus Walkinshaw from RESTORATION LIVE will be restoring a 1983 Classic Range Rover with parts exclusively sourced from eBay, the global online marketplace.
We have all been there before, sourcing parts for our precious Land Rovers on eBay. Where did we find parts before eBay existed? eBay are the official parts and accessories partner of the 2016 Silverstone Classic and this live restoration of the Classic Range Rover, is expected to attract thousands of show-goers.
Walkinshaw and his team will guide the crowd through every step of the project as they renovate the iconic first-generation Range Rover using only items bought from eBay. Whether it’s a new replacement body panel or an original piece of internal trim, finding the right pieces shouldn’t prove too tricky as there are more than 8 million live listings of car parts and accessories on ebay.co.uk to buy at any time.
eBay is currently home to one of the largest collections of motoring products in the world and, thus, the ideal destination for everything from replacement parts for your Land Rover or the final rare piece in a Series I restoration puzzle.
Murray Lambell, eBay’s director of retail car parts & accessories, said, “We love Silverstone Classic. It attracts everyone from the highly experienced restorer right through to people who simply just love their car – just like eBay does – so it’s a great event for us to be part of. With such a huge selection of products Fergus and the team will easily find everything they need when they restore the Range Rover. eBay can help with everything from an everyday replacement part - to a rare component in a classic restoration.”
As for the Range Rover, once it is restored to its former glory, it will appear on stage during the Mike Brewer Car Clinic on Sunday at the Classic, with Mike and Fergus answering questions and sharing their experience of the complex project. So get yourself down to the Silverstone Classic and watch the live restoration of a 34-year old Range Rover.
All tickets for the 2016 Silverstone Classic must be purchased in advance.
