The honda generator is interesting but the cage is terrible as is the pics of the guy being an uber douche.

I saw that this morning. It looks like somebody spent some money with a photographer. But what an idiot, I don't know many people who hunt with a shotgun out of the back of a truck, maybe its a southern thing.. Who knows.

I do like the console though....

Are those pan head screws holding the 'cage' to the body?

I'm guessing that cage is purely cosmetic and not tied to the frame at all. Why would anyone do this? Someone here must own it. Fess up.

I love the David Crockett pics.

The truck does not look that bad.

1971 was a late 2a not s3 so that seems weird to me. You can see in a picture of the rear side facing seat that the cage doesn't seemed tied to the frame. I think the cage looks nice and I would think someone could make it functional too with not too much effort. Wonder why they didn't just do it in the first place? I like the wood work inside better than the stock s3 dash.

Saw that rig on there last night and just had to chuckle. The hemingway with a shotgun pics floored me, but to each his own. What is about rovers that brings out the goofy?

You're absolutely right, and I found that odd too. 1971 is defintely a IIa (I know from experience : ), but it's a SIII grill, dash, and other treatments. Either retitled or rebuilt, or one of the only chaps to trade a metal dash for a plastic one (which would be like taking a LHD truck in the US and doing a RHD conversion).

It's a really early SIII. Some of the first ones were sold in late 71 (in UK). All the SIII bits but still had the IIA door hinges.

Yeah. It has the SIII bonnet hinges which is the clue, even though the IIA door hinges. That was the mix when the SIII was first introduced.

If you read the ad copy it seem targeted for show which make the roll cage screwed to thin aluminum not a big deal.
It looks like someone did a nice restoration, though they left a number of details undone. One of the most glaring the rusty bollard on the winch.

SOLD in late '71, but TITLED as a '71? Wouldn't it still be titled as a '72 since its a SIII?

According to lrfaq there were actually more SIII's produced in '71 than IIa's. I'm sure quite a few were titled as '71.

I believe this deserves an "OMFG". I thought you were joking when you mentioned that (and you were), but that is ridiculous that you were right.

Something about the location and his pics made me think it was him. This is terrible news for places like ecr. He is now the go to guy for both defenders and series trucks. I wonder if he has a waiting list.
