RSOV

02 is likely the year it was released from military service. My understanding was these were not to ever make it into civilian hands.

Yeah, this raises all kinds of questions--pretty sure DRMO isn't selling these at auction, at least without de-mil-ing them first (taking a torch to the frame or something like that) . . . totally bizarre that this apparently real-deal RSOV is apparently legally registered and out on the street.

And even more bizarre that it's apparently owned by someone who knows absolutely nothing about Land Rovers--seems like if a vehicle like this (sort of the Pink Panther of its day) squeaked through the system and hit the street, it'd be in the hands of a foaming-at-the mouth enthusiast.

Would love to know the backstory. And what he's got the reserve set at. If this thing is legit and in good shape, seems like it'd be worth a king's ransom, as it's probably the. only. one. that will ever hit the civilian market.

Not that I've seen. Without seeing the frame it's tough to say for sure, but there are some components on that truck that are tricky to replicate. Looks like the real deal.

Last I heard the EPA owned an RSOV, but after they completely killed off all life for hundreds of miles when they fucked up the entire Gold King Mine "clean-up" efforts, they realized they should concentrate all of their resources to eliminating Defenders.

Looks like it's probably for real, then. Should be able to look up the info on the sale from the Golden PD, as I would think that would be public info.

So when it was in the service of the police department, it probably got titled and registered. So probably the only RSOVs that have a chance of hitting the civilian market are the ones that worked for a PD.

According to the seller it was previously owned by local Sheriff's department.

I wonder what the reserve is. It's at $14.1k currently and hasn't met reserve yet. Looks like the dude owned it for like 1 hour before it hit eBay based on the release date.
