I would definitely keep the leaf springs and narrow axles. I might conscience a disc brake upgrade, but other than that, she needs to be all original. No newer seats, defender nose, nothing like that.

Then it is like my 1959. Basically useless on modern roads. At a minimum I would fit a 200tdi and lt77. That is not irreversible. And it is not like he bulkhead or. Frame will survive the restoration.

I just checked out a house that I could potentially have first dibs on if I can agree on a price with them. It's an old 1820 button factory turned into a house with a barn. If this ends up going through, fingers crossed, I may have to get rid of this Dormy. I'm going to be totally tied up redoing this house and will have no time for the Rovers. What's this thing worth? Anyone interested?

Who knows as they rarely sell. I sold one that was rough and had a carawagon roof for $2500. If this has a title, you might get double that, but there is 20k worth of restoration needed not including labor and the economy sucks. Only way to really find out is to ebay it. A good detail and getting it running and serviced would net the most money (even if the frame and bulkhead are still junk).

Thanks Ron,
I can't believe I just got it and might have to part with it this soon. But if this house falls into place I've got to put my eggs in that basket...along with my 300tdi conversion on the 110 basket.

Nothing wrong with parking it in the barn for another 5 years.

Any chance you can call my wife and explain to her that this is a vehicle worth keeping

Well looks like this house is going through...signing the purchase agreement today. So this beast is up for sale. $5500. I'll post it in the "For Sale" section as well. If anyone wants it I'll also give them the lead on the rolling coil chassis.
