Think those are honda prelude seats and the rare macgyver edition rear door.

Has anyone ever bought a truck from this seller on this board? Are they mechanically sound but cosmetically "challenged"? Curious.

Perfect example of the kind of vulgar molestation you'd expect when there is a complete disregard for heritage and history of said product. Throw some poor taste into the mix and you're all set.

The guy is down in Boca (with a thick NY accent) always paints his Rovers black - or orange and has wacky upholstry. And has on his fleabay listing:
PLEASE NO EMAILS....CALL PLEASE
PLEASE NOTE: I AM HARDLY EVER NEAR A COMPUTER SO RESPONDING TO EMAILS IS DIFFICULT. I AM ONLY ONE MAN TRAVELING AROUND THE COUNTRY AND FOR THIS REASON

Who puts this shit on ebay - yet is never near a computer?

Looks like a poor tangiers orange spray.

Turn off the caps lock.

"I see people putting these cars up for 175k" No, you don't. That is a Series truck, not a Defender. Even the Lanny Clark Ovis 109 is maxed out at around 100k, and it's the most beautiful Series restorations I've ever seen.

It has later Defender doors, and basically any parts that the guy could find stapled on. I bet that colorful engine is SUPER fast!

The truck had far too many trips to Pepboys! Surprised it doesn't have the soup can exhaust!

There actually is a member who bought one of his trucks about 4 months ago. He posted a pic somewhere and I asked him and he confirmed...so sad. What a pile of shite.

Oh..my...God. I can't believe you would expect this vehicle to COME with a front diff, the Rover Dousche removes that because it was rusty.

Maybe the color choice is to appeal to UF alumni?
