I suggest getting Stephen to post more pictures. Most of the trucks on their website have 50+ images, and he does a good job of highlighting know issues. Once the images are up, you'll find plenty of people on the board willing to point out any areas of concern.

Besides the pictures, the most important thing is to make sure there's no lingering issues from the accident. Stephen will probably offer to setup a pre-purchase inspection, but I think the shop he uses might be too "friendly" to offer a reliable opinion on something like this (they do a bunch of work for adventure motorcars). Anybody know of a good shop/person near Birmingham that could offer an unbiased PPI?

Christina, I have a customer who is currently stationed in Rhode Island with a Arles Blue soft top for sale. I haven't seen the Rover for a few years as he was stationed in Hawaii and San Diego- maybe I should look into mobile service!-but he's in need of a larger Rover with 3 kids. He was out on a boat a lot so the Rover didn't get a lot of mileage in the last 4 years, but I'd be happy to forward the details of the work I performed when it was last in.
Feel free to PM here or through British 4x4 Specialists . com

I really appreciate the help.
Have a mechanic go with you, it would be even better if it is a friend of your husband that is mechanically compentant, car dealers and shops love lesser knowledgable people, if its a mechanic and a friend, they will be less likely to pull a fast one on you.

I know I'm going to get this username wrong but popenoaha from NJ sold his Arles Blue ST to a guy in Hawaii and has been looking for that truck ever since. How many Arles Blue 1994 D90s could there be on Hawaii?

I bought from Stephen as well--very good experience, very honest--definitely get all info regarding the accident and go over the carfax in detail (number of owners, title issues). He'll be straightforward with you regarding the vehicle and if he thinks its in good shape...make sure he gets you all photos, as stated he usually provides over 50 photos. FYI, typically takes at least 2 weeks to find a shipper and get delivered to CT. Good Luck.

And if you decide 110 is more your husband's style, you can always pony up a cool 220k for this one...

Stephen has been great. We're going back and forth. My husband's best friend is a car dealer and took the VIN from me today.
As far as going with a mechanic, I wish I could...but the car is in AL and we are in CT.

If I could pony up 220K...I'd probably still buy this one for him and something else for me!
