Nice looking truck. Never understood the whole disco2 seats in a series/defender but comfort is king I suppose.

Has a power winch too, which is nice compared to the hand cranked winches I've always used

yeah the disco seats throw me off a little, but thats a simple switch. Looks like it has overdrive, 235/85/16's
and possibly parabolics.

It's a good start, that's for sure.

Koenigs always look so right on a Series.

Those seats put the steering wheel right in your nuts.

I looked through Mecum's history on series sales, saw one that sold for over$45K.
I doubt this one will sell for less than 30K.

I don't forsee someone buying that beauty to offroad. Then again, that would be nice.

Depends on what the auction house % fees are I guess, for buyers registration to be able to bid is $100, then probably add 20% auction house fees, plus shipping which buyer would have to arrange.

Today 07:42 AM

With adequate protection I see it especially green laning, but not rock crawling for sure

With steering wheel to your bawlz, I would cringe at the slightest bumps, especially in a series..
I guess I'm *sensitive*

Well, people off-road in 101 FCs and if that isn't the biggest ball-threatening Rover I don't know what is.
