I have been chasing after that truck for years. What did you say to make him part with it? The guy was quite a character.

Good for you.

You knew the guy, Rob, in Alamosa, CO that I bought this truck from? I didn't say much other than replying to an ad he had posted months before where he was asking $5000. I think he was tired of only having folks from far away inquire via email and no real way to come and check out the truck in person easily. I was only 2.5 hours away in Colorado Springs. Basically, at the time, sight unseen, I told him that if he would except something below $1500, I would make the drive down to take a look at the truck. He really wanted somebody to come look at it and said he would take something below $1500. I offered $1250 after seeing the truck and it was a handshake deal from there until the following weekend.

Seemed like a really nice guy, especially since he honored our handshake deal after somebody else offered him $3000 on the spot in the week between the handshake and coming with money the following weekend. He didn't even call me to see if I might be willing to match, which I would have been unable to do at the time.

Met him briefly. He stood me up a couple times when I was traveling through the area also. I was moving my shop close to his location, but that is not happening now. Guess he lost my phone number when it came time to sell. I do not think he was considering selling when I was asking.

So do you know for a fact someone else offered more? One thing you'll learn in the Land Rover atmosphere, sometimes things are not what they appear to be.

Regardless, its in your vehicle now, and I think you did well. Get it running. I know a lot of owners/ collectors in your area who can help with parts. Plus the Solihull forum will get you in touch with other locals.

Have fun!

I donít know for a fact that somebody offered more since I wasnít there as a fly on the wall, but he did not tell me the story until after the money and title were exchanged. Donít know why he would tell me this afterwards if it wasnít true. He was very pleasant to deal with. It was a good month later before we had arrangements to get the spare motor transported to my house. He arranged for an engine lift at his house and a student of his that was coming to Colorado Springs for Christmas to haul it here. All I paid for was a tank of gas for the girl that drove and an engine hoist rental. Saved me an all day trip and a ton of gas, so I was happy. Rob has also been very open with any information about the truck. I have emailed him a few times in the past couple weeks hoping to get honest straight answers about the mechanicals of the truck, and he has responded. His answers are giving me considerable hope that Iíll have this truck on the road sooner than later. Apparently, it was running when he parked it. Had typical leaks and idled rough. Hopefully, Iíll have some time here soon to go get a new battery, do some fluid changes, and simple maintenance items and see if I might just get this truck started. Wish me luck!
