There is snow on the ground.

What I really want is a diesel 110 but I love these old Rovers. They're like a pair of blue jeans you've worn for years. I would never paint it!

He put out that figure because it's an 88 inch from 1967. Not an arbitrary figure, but also probably not what he expects it to sell for. He is expecting that someone knowledgeable in Series Rovers will make a reasonable cash offer. I would throw out $6000 and see what happens. If he has proof that the engine is good as in a recent leak down and compression test along with record of work on the brakes and clutch and stuff that one would normally expect to have to redo as a matter of course when buying a vintage car, then maybe go a little higher.

Sheesh...CO / Va, that's almost the same right?

Hans, you know Pete (Aloharover), right?

He's there in CO Springs and has loads of Series truck experience.


...yes, and that extra door sitting in my garage really needs to get boxed up and sent out there too...

Then I'm guessing we'll meet soon enough.

If it's on a galvy frame and the bulkhead is in decent shape, 8k is a good price. From the pics, it looks clean and straight, and the engine compartment looks pretty unmolested as well. Id need lots more pics though or Id need to see it in person and give it a drive.

But like I said, if the frame/bulkhead are in good shape corrosion-wise and the engine runs fairly well, you're good to go, these things are simple simple to repair.

Even though it has Station Wagon badging, it doesn't appear to have been a SW originally. Big give away being the hood tie points on the tub side which SWs did not have, and tailgate mounts on the rear cross member. Could be a later tub, who knows. Also a SW will have a full headliner, complete set of trim panels inside, side bolsters on the roof, lined footwells, Tunnel cover, folding bench seats in the back, a rear step, load space mat, deluxe dished bonnet with spare, Smith's heater and defrost vents, sliding side windows, full rear door with grab handle and remote latch release, um...what else...
It does have the SW roof and sunsheet, so again, it may be a mashup. The spare carrier on the rear door appears to be mounted too low. SW did not have that as OE as the spare was bonnet mounted.
Your list just guaranteed my truck as a factory station wagon, or atleast a very clever disguise. lol


To the OP, it would just be a little concerning to me as to why it sits on a galvy frame, you generally do not go through the trouble of putting one on if the original frame is in good shape, do it would leave me to believe that the original was rusty, and generally if a frame gets rusty enough to be replaced the bulkhead will suffer as well, so I would take a good hard look at the bulkhead and the rest of the steel bits on it for rust.

Seller never responded to my inquiry. Oh well. I think I may have found something a little better suited to my needs anyway.
