Series Project Truck

Need to make room in the driveway, so the Series project truck has to go.

1965 Series IIA 88"
RHD
Truck Cab
I've had it for a couple of years now and I had a motor and clutch put in it after the original spun a bearing.
The original motor will also be included with the truck.
I've also installed a complete wiring harness from British Wiring and turn signals. It has the alternator conversion from Robert Davis on it. Lots of spare parts to go with it.

The bad: The frame could use attention or replacement. It's not in obvious, about ready to break condition, but it's not worry free either.
The rear window in the truck cab needs restored and has no glass, currently covered with a sheet of plexi
The springs need replacement. One of the spring packs in the rear is flat.
The right front tire leaks down over the period of a week. I can't find a puncture so it may be something else.

The good: well, it is fun to drive around town. It runs and drives well, the PO said it had a recent brake job.

Price: $6500 or best reasonable offer. Trades may be considered, but I'm not looking for another project.

I also have a fair condition rear tub and full hard top for additional cost ($400).

Located in Great Falls, VA.

I know this truck and it is a good value for the money. frame has had some repairs but seemed quite solid, truck drove well after we put the new powerplant in. a running, going (and stopping) concern. lots of character and originality. would be a great workhorse with the p/u cab too.

Dave, thank you for the assessment. I would have like to have kept it, but it's time for it to go.

Disclosure: Dave helped me, or rather, put in the new powerplant himself with me "supervising". He doesn't benefit from the sale except for a round or two at the NOVA HH when I ever make it there.

I wish there was a way I could make that happen -- I've always wanted an 88. Good luck, Justin!

Yeah Tony, I know how you feel. I just got back from a drive with it around town with the cab and door tops off. So much fun and lots of stares and thumbs up from other Rover drivers. I have a feeling it won't be the last Series I have. I just may have to wait a few years for the next one.

Hmm, I also have a 1990 RRC parts truck. I haven't looked at the frame in a while, but I'm sure I could make a package deal if someone wanted to tackle a Series coiler project.

Justin, can you shoot me info on the parts truck (I assume it's the same one I saw a few years ago). My neighbor might be interested in it.

Man all these series trucks for sale are killing me. I want to get one some day, but want a '63 or '70.

Justin, what's the length, width, and usable height (inside height) on a 88" tub? I'd like to make a trailer out of a rover tub - have been thinking a 109, but maybe a 88" would do.

Birth years for my wife and I. I have this crazy idea to restore a vehicle my age and then baby it.

Haha. I don't think it goes any deeper than I'm just the kind of guys who likes to build things and have something tangible at the end. Most of my work is software I can't even show anyone, let alone get that same feeling when done with it. And most of the time with the rovers it's a fix/improve, break, repeat cycle which can sometime be annoying. I think I'd get a lot of satisfaction out of being able to to say "I put it together from the ground up and despite being as old as I am, it still looks good and is still running strong". LOL

I also need more garage space. Once I have the room, my standards might change and I'd take other years. I'm also open to other brands, but I have a soft spot for rovers obviously

69" Wide, 55" long, and 29" deep. Those are rough measurements, the wheel wells subtract more space.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one, I'm still looking for a 75 SIII, the 97 Disco represents college graduation and I'm dreaming about a NAS110 for 1993 high school graduation. As I tell my friends and co-workers when the ask what is wrong with me, "the list is long".

The Series is a blast to drive without the top and door tops. Someone must be looking for a great summer truck!?

Sounds comparable to a D90 tub then. Anyone know how much longer a 109" tub is?

Nice 88. I've got one on the west coast I'm trying to sell as well. These are fun rides.

Still plenty of summer left if someone is looking for a fun truck to tool around town in with the top off. Then, come fall, you can put the truck cab and door tops on and use it around the farm. Let's make a deal....
