Nice find! Hope someone rescues it. I like those ROW breakfast panels.

ROW referes to Defenders only. The breakfast was the same for domestic UK and export markets. That truck has an earlier breakfast panel (before 67) on later bug eye wings. Either you have the lights in the breakfast or on/in the wings. The only thing that changed with markets was the steering and NADA spec items.

Maybe I'm calling it by the wrong name but I'm referring to the rings around the headlamps in the breakfast panel. Different than us market without question. I've never seen one in person to inspect so maybe it's just that they don't have chrome trim around the lights but I have always liked the way they look.

I think the breakfast is a military spec panel and is different from the normal headlights and chrome trim rings.

But im NOT 100% but thats my observation

There were different lamp buckets for the military for the UK trucks. More of a rarity these days. Hard to tell from the rings in the pic though. Someone on GnR has them and they appear to be mostly NLA. I think some sources in the UK have them for silly money...

Hard to tell. If it is a NADA then the breakfast is a civilian. But since the wings are bugeye the truck appears to be a frakenrover. Body style is a 5 door and I really don't know if the MOD had much if any in their contracts. Probably did, but it doesn't seem to fit this particular truck. Looks like a late 2a civi truck with the breakfast replaced to an earlier 2a.

From the pics it looks like a rhd early 2a with headlamps added to the wings. The front running light look like the early style to me and its got the deep sill panels under the doors. Anyway hope someone gets it cheap and puts it to good use.

1963 Series 2a....I rescued it...may have done so a lot earlier if I came across this thread!!! But then again, the bloke probably wanted more for it at the time of the auction.

Shipping would probably be the killer... packing wouldn't be easy either.

I do have two second row aluminium door tops (used) from a very early 110 and a series door bottom that's new... can't remember what I paid for them though. They weren't cheap, I might be open to offers.
I can take some pics this weekend.

Nice work Craig...as I always say, there's no such thing as "one Rover". They multiply like Gremlins when you put water on them.

Old thread...but just to keep it alive...she is going to be back on the road shortly. Have some brake stuff to fix up, and the clutch - some minor issues - then of course a paint job.

Trying to also get the air conditioning working too! Yep A/C in a 63 Series.
