Hello I am selling a 1973 Series Hybrid Rover. It is based on a 1989 Range Rover frame,drivetrain. It has a Disco trans and LT230 Tbox. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
or email me through ebay. thanks
The truck is listed on Ebay, located in Bradenton FL. Its one heck of a trail toy. Open to offers around $15,000.
This truck was rebuilt from the frame up and finished in April of 2008. It is a 1973 Series III body mounted on a 1989 Range Rover Classic coil sprung shortened/plated frame. Willow green (color of the 1997 LE Defender), it is a metallic bronze green and hard to capture in photos so Ive included an evening picture as well to show the color in different lights. All time 4wd, 4 wheel disc brakes, power steering, etc. I built this truck as a trail truck but it is very driveable, albeit a bit loud from the Super Swamper tires. Everything works as it should. It features a 3.9 L aluminum rover V8, a 4spd auto from a Discovery and a LT230 transfer case out of a Discovery. Range Rover axles with ARB lockers front and rear. The truck is titled as a 1989 Range Rover, but could easily be titled as a series if you so desire (http://www.its-titles.com/
). It does have the vin plate from the series and the chassis is marked to match the vin from the Range Rover. Its not a show truck as the body has some dents that were left in it prior to paint and a few flaws in the paint but it looks very nice. All of the fluids were just changed and this truck needs nothing to hit the trails. I do have it for sale locally so I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
