It would sell for more than that (220GBP) here in the USA.

Gren,
Why is it everything Land Rover related is always wet in the photo's on Ebay UK ?
For example, this is an interior bit and the fellow obviously has just shot it with a hose in an effort to make it difficult to discern its true condition. Might as well wipe petroleum jelly on the camera lense.

Because it's always raining.

He's in Barnstable Devon. It always rains in the West Country. But why does he leave stuff outside like that?

I see very few of these for sale that look even marginally clean - and RN now was their own flavor for $1k. Almost tempting. Wish I could see one in person.

Looks an awful lot like the Ashcroft unit...

Hi Doug, I bet he blew it over with the pressure washer to get the crap off.!
shame he could not work out which way up the fuse cover sat, he did have a 50/50 chance.

looking at the 1st bidder it looks like he likes lego.!! if it stays at that price I'll have a pop at it just for the fuse cover.
I'm sure i could sell the latch assy to someone over the pond for a fair chunk of change

regards all

I am in the market for a latch assembly. If you end up picking this up let me know!

I think it's Armor All, not water.

And yes, it looks just like it - I don't recall the little handle on the cubby last time I saw the Ashcroft version.

You are correct. Anyone attach cup holders to one of these?
