Good lord! It looks like somebody has been waiting quite a while for the end of production!

If this isn't a million dollar rover, then what could the realistic margins actually be for someone, albeit a bit of a crazy someone ;-)

It is not anywhere near as special as that asking price! It is not like it is the first Series 1 or even the first 88. Just the first production diesel with not even the original engine... Not worth much, IMO.

Maybe if they had a solid list of a few of the things wrong with it, more people might be interested.

I'd like to know what peat bog they pulled it out of, maybe the other center drive prototype is in there.

Let's see.

Rotten rear crossmember.
Rotten bulkhead.
Missing the original top and hack job replacement on there.
Engine from another truck.
Unknown all mechanicals.
Mangled body (what is left of it).
Random other missing parts.

IMO, maybe worth $1000 due to the special serial number, $2k on a good day. But what do I know.

I can't imagine its worth anywhere near that but remarkably now the new owner can send it back to land rover for a factory restoration...and as the owner of a 57 S1 i might have to go check my VIN if that sells.

There is just something about those pictures and seeing the description "dry stored since 2002." Doesn't add up.
