Paint has a few nicks and scratches, and top is pretty worn out.
Used for local Land Rover club trials events a few times.
Generates a lot of interest at British car shows.
52 bhp. Slow with vague steering so unable to compete with modern traffic. Think of it as being half way between a later Series Land-Rover and a tractor.
Deserves a quiet life of puttering around a neighborhood or a farm.
In the right setting, partly because of the color, this is a very cool vehicle.
Like most of us, I have too many projects.
As much as I like this old Rover, I hardly ever use it and I'm paying for storage.
