Post them and you will get lots of comments... Maybe even some helpful ones... Seriously though make sure you get pics of the bottom of the doors... Frame shots.... Bulkhead shots... And footwell shots... I'm sure I've left some areas out... And I'm sure others will mention them...

Thanks for any help in advance. I have to get the guy to send me shots of the bottoms of the doors. The drivers side foot well has me a little concerned as well.

I would be concerned about the bulk head...there are definitely "signs" of water, but other than that it all looks normal. I wouldn't have a problem paying 25k if it's as good as it looks, for sure not more than 28K and thats only if I were drunk...looks ok...if you're into Red!

I'd have a D90 guy check it first for sure. Good Luck!!

You have wear items like the seal in the Pittman ball is torn and little things...maybe cooler lines and the like so plan on spending a couple of bucks on maintenance.

Driverside footwell just looks like it suffered from a leaky clutch master cylinder (who's hasn't!), and other than that it looks really (extremely) clean. I'm not sure why some folks are throwing around prices in the $20s, I'd say this is easily in the $30s/high-$30s (or even $40s) as long as the mileage is reasonable (100K + or -) and title is clean.

Where is it? In the DC area or are you getting pics remotely? Never buy sight-unseen, if you're really serious either find a Rover nut nearby and/or fly out and inspect it in person (and drive it home!).

What's the asking price?

it has just over 100K on the clock and its priced in the upper 30's but took an offer in the lower 30's. Its in Ohio, and I have some friends that can go look at it, but they aren't knowledgeable about rovers ( I have spent a year on this site trying to learn as much as I can and wouldn't call myself knowledgeable either). I felt the truck looked clean minus the foot well issue. Anyone else have any thoughts on this? Most of the 90's I have seen have some corrosion in the wells.

the owner states the know problems are as such

Air conditioning unit needs a new/refurbished fan blower unit
Front sway links need to be replaced
Front radius arm bushings need to be replaced
Transfer case seeps (very minimal)

Any rover Nuts in OH-I-O want to check it out?

thanks for the input thus far

Iamkraig is on OH...ping him.

Those "issues" listed above are minimal, and I wouldn't lose a wink of sleep over the footwell stuff - that's due solely to the leaking clutch master DOT4 fluid stripping the paint, not any excessive rust/corrosion. Though I do agree it needs to be fixed/painted.

My personal opinion is that low-$30s is a fair price. Not a "screaming deal" of the century or anything, but does look clean and I'd say the price is fair. All that pending in-person inspection. It may even be worth you driving or flying out and driving it home (with cashiers check in hand).

I was thinking most of those issues were minimal. I also totally agree with you, on driving out there with a check in hand. I don't want to make friends with someone over the internet and hand them a check and get nothing in return. I will message Iamkraig tmrw, thanks for the help

You mean with cocaine sprinkled all over the brake pedal because you dropped your stash when the cops drove by?

Looks very nice to me. No way it stayed in Ohio long unless it was not driven in winter.

Doors may not be original or they may have had work done on them. My 94 had snaps for a full tonneau cover. Not sure if all 94s had the snaps on the doors, but looks like this one still uses a Tickford top leading me to believe it should have them on the doors. (I think they came from the factory like that?)
