Sure hope it doesn't turn yellow like the last series they found in a barn...

John, they told the rover was for the show before we talked price. They low balled me at first but I got what I wanted... Both guys were cool overall.

Here's a link for the rover ... It's for sale now

Love the show and looking forward to seeing a Rover featured. Hopefully not painted yellow...

If they get that some sucker will be sorely disappointed when they try and re-sell. Its not worth $15,000 let alone what they are asking, there are plenty of immaculate series vehicles at what they are asking lol

Most things done by this program are junk, the Defender one they did was a joke! They didn't even do most of the work a Land Rover garage did! Ed is the cheapest mechanic in history!

The truck will have star power once the show airs. They will get every dime they ask, it's Hollywood after all.

I guess I'm confused, $37,500 for that truck? Maybe they made a typo error and added one too many zeros. $3,750 seems about right. Unless of course they stuffed a couple dozen ounces of gold in the seat box.

Huh, I was thinking the advertisement was pre show………..like they did not want to spoil the outcome. If that's what they are selling then, damn.

Congrats on selling your truck, I did think it was a cool truck when you had it listed.

That NAS 90 Sold. You'd have to ask Stan what it sold for.

I agree on the Hollywood thing, a badly restored non original colour or spec series 1 80 that was on a TV program here last year sold at auction for 53,000!!! But it was brought by Kahn, and now they want even more for it!
