Early Range Rover 2 doors?

Anyone here into early Rangies? Looks as though I'll have a fairly complete but rusty '74 that I won't be needing the majority of -- It appears that much of it is slightly different than the RRCs I've had in the past -- do folks need parts off of it or should I just send it to the scrapper?

It arrived. Cool truck and the sliding side windows are neat. If this thing could talk I'd think it'd have some stories to tell, apparently it was built up for rallying in the UK by an american woman in school over there. Dual ARBs, winch, steering and axle guards, bizarre dual front shock setup, FI 3.9, etc. Rusty as hell, though.

Great truck, I love the 2-door RRs.. Remind me of the Darien Gap trip. There is a 2 door white one behind the US capital, about the same shape as yours.

Could still be yours -- I only got it to part out. Too many good parts on it to let it go.

I have a 2 door and could use some bits and pieces. Are you parting it out or letting the whole truck go?

I'd prefer to let the whole thing go as a unit so I don't have to invest the time into pulling and shipping individual parts.

Someone has a white 2 door near L street NW. It's in pretty good condition, it reminds me of a rangie version of a 90.

How rusty is it? 2-door Range Rover is on the list to own but the wife would kill me if I took on another 2 year project after the 110....

Off hand I know i'd need the PS floors, sills on both sides, a tailgate and a liftgate. Honestly, it really is a (very well equipped) parts truck.
