people post rovers on the denver list from neighboring states all the time. CO's a Rover state. Doesnt seem like a scam to me, but maybe it is.

I'm going to see it tomorrow morning and can report back. Thinking about putting a 4bt in it, if it's in acceptable shape.

I don't know about easy, but has been done a few times before. Rover Hybrids has done one and a guy on www.4btswaps.com has one running too.

It's a super simple engine, gets great mpg, and nice grunt. Although it is loud, this not going to be a daily driver. I'm a bit concerned about extent of the fire and the status of the title. We'll see....

I'm going to pass, as there are too many questions for me at his asking price. If anyone want's pictures and an unbiased review of the vehicle LMK.

I saw it on ebay last week I think. very minor damage.
It looked clean.
for someone that know what they are doing this might be a pretty good deal.
