    So tell us more, Bill, because that looks like a great Rover!

    Series 1 88" with a galvanized chassis?
    What engine?
    Original steering box?
    What winch?

    Are there any more like it wherever you found it?

    Sorry, I have to post again. Where do you find this stuff? It seems like there is some secret underground Land Rover pipeline that I'm not privy too!

    It's an 86" Series 1

    Galv chassis and bulkhead. 200tdi on SIII transmission with overdrive. So it is a series truck that looks S1 but can keep up with modern traffic and be used everyday.

    Probably not to everyones taste, but I have enough totally original/restored series trucks and was looking for one that I could slightly modernize to make it more daily friendly.

    I think its time to have an intervention with Bill about his rover addiction.

    I'm touched that you are willing to make that sacrifice for me... ;-)
