I remember some place in NH doing that 20 years ago. It's a great idea. Very popular in some areas of England

No, but shortening the stock roof will be easy enough. I just have not had time to work on it because I have been busy with the drivetrain. I need the utility of the pick up bed so I am really excited about getting it done asap. However, this is a pretty extensive project. It needs all new wiring, paint and body work, interior, etc, etc.....

Looking forward to the photos!

Have you ever noticed how work cuts into your free time?

The nice thing about a rover is; it's like a erector set, everything bolts together. Good luck!

PS. it will be a nice truck

Thanks all. The Porsche in the background is a 77 with a 993 conversion. I will probably sell it once I get it painted. My pride and joy is my 67 912. What a great little car. Here is a picture.


Notice it has the rare dual baby seat option in the back!

That looks a lot like I want mine to turn out. How did you lift it and what size tires are those. Looks sharp.

Looks like a great project! What are you going to do about the middle door pillars? What's your plan for the spring over?

This is where I get butchered by the Rover guys, I built a 6" frame lift out of heavy steel, rearched the springs, removed the Rover rearends and replaced them with 3.73 dana 60s 5 0n 5 with 33/12.50r15 with a Chevy 4 speed auto and a BT 4 Cummins diesel. Over all the rover stands 11" taller than stock. And I stretched it from a 109 inch to a 112 inch. I did this about 12-14 years ago when I had a house in Mexico, I was building a driver, not a hard core 4x4.

Prior to that, I fabricated the frame and firewall, adaptor plate etc, and had a 325hp SB Mopar with all stock rover running gear, it was very quick 0 to 100 in about 9 seconds. I drove it for about 300 miles (over a years time) like that, it was very hard on the rover's trans. I surprised a few corvettes.

I'm have four projects right now, 1966 Barracuda 340 auto, 1940 willys sadan delivery BB hemi Auto, 1966 Land rover Cummins Auto and my 1961 Red rover that I've had for 33+ years that I'm working on first.
