attached are the pictures! Much better than I was hoping and the land rover stickers are a good sign. Makes me think this guy is a rovernut. Bonus on the brownchurch style roofrack I did not know I was getting.

As far as RoRo. When I helped Dom get his 1975 109 in from Australia, it had to be true roll on, roll off as they made you drain the tanks and disconnect or remove the battery.

Are you just planning to strip it to fund shipping and/or strip it for Ron good parts, or do a little something to it down the road to maybe make it look like Dale's old truck?

Would be sick...and versatile.

I have a very complicated plan that involves the parts off of a couple dozen rovers that results in two drivable vehicles and lots of left over parts. This one here I bought for the winch (check!) a 110 regular tub (check!) a Land Rover 110 base vehicle with proper identity for restoration (check!), 110 regular roof sides with windows (check!) and a non-apline window top to install my dormobile roof in (check!).

When I get it, stuff I don't need (drivetrain, chassis, RHD bulkhead) goes up for sale.

Ron

PS dale's old truck is cool, but I already have a NAS ST (and a porsche targa and a lotus for open air motoring). I want hardtops now.

That looks like a good find on parts alone.

You do understand he bid on an item with a vague description (didn't even indicate what body style the truck was) and most importantly NO pictures ? Ron got a deal only because no one else bid on a vehicle with no pictures. He gambled and got "Ron good". This transaction could have gone the otherway and Ron even suspected he was bidding on a fradulent/scammer auction.

BTW- eta is June 9th, seas permitting.

Yay! June 9th.

Doug is correct. I bid based on a vague description, no pictures and a few minutes on the phone with the seller with zero feedback. I figured it was a $722 gamble on a possible scam (guy knew way too much about rovers to be a complete scam based on my gut instinct, but it is always a risk) and my thought was, as long as it was legit, I could sell the scrap/V5 to someone in the UK looking for an idenity to build up and maybe get my winch. Not recommended for those who would be upset if they flushed 500 quid down the toilet.

PS if it was not for my insane desire for the winch, I would not have bid.

I know that it was blind luck that things worked out in your favor... but It's still nice to know that deals are still out there if your willing to take a risk.. ...

You can still find MOT failure rust buckets for under 1000UKP. The best deal was a 200tdi galvy frame SW that sold for 2000ukp. I should have called at 4am because when I got Doug to call our time 9am it was sold (not his fault by any means as he called right away).

Most UK stuff is original and worn out, a crap rebuild, or a very expensive nice rebuild.

I've wondered about the "project" trucks or scorn trucks. There was a green 110 with a 200TDI that needed work to pass MOT on uk ebay last month that went for just over 1000 GBP. It was ugly and worn, but once over here it would have been solid gold. Maybe this is what I should do. My wife just won't let me drop the money needed on one of Aarons trucks (she does like that bright blue one on his website though). I've got back pay coming where the county was using the wrong calculation the last five years to figure overtime pay so maybe thats where it should go. I'll have to start checking uk ebay daily. I don't need anything fancy for a daily driver. I could really piss off the HOA if there was a defender in peices in the yard.

Hi Ron,
I don't know if you have plans for them, but I would be interested in your seats when the truck gets here.

The interior is "tatty" so I assume they would only be good for cores. Then again complete seats are $500+ each whereas a recover kit is under $200.

Delivered to the dock at 3pm today!

Check in Doug's hands for his services. He was within 10% of the estimate so I am happy, actually within closer to 5% if I did the math right.
