Series truck for sale

For an acquaintance, I know nothing more than is posted here:

It is a 1959 with body upgrades from mid 70's rovers. The lights and cases are not original nor is the grill. The diamond plate on the sides of the hood is removable and I had the area painted. I traded a granite kitchen for a paint job which was done by a company out of southern Virginia that specializes in antique British cars. The paint was an aluminum oxide epoxy paint. There were 4 layers of primer before the main paint went on. The Blue was a match from Rover direct as was the Beige. The interior of the Rover is not painted and is original. The engine is from a mid 80's rover and had just been installed when my brother purchased it. I purchased the new carb from Rover NW and installed it as well as new caps, lines, plugs, distributor, used radiator, shocks, and various interior gauges. The hard top has been off twice while I have owned the car and it is an easy removal (approx 10 bolts) once the hard top is removed the rear door is replaced with a tailgate which has also been painted. I have new rear seats and a bunch of other random stuff stored in the back. The car runs and I drove it from the port of Baltimore to New York to Virginia when I picked it up from overseas. I would not suggest driving over 65 mph but I can tell you that I have driven it off road and in the snow and it is impressive. I bought a house in DC and no longer have the luxury of a garage so I (and by I, I really mean my wife) am trying to get rid of my toys. I also have a 28' Bayliner if you know anyone interested in boats. I will get you more info next week. Let me know if you want to come and see it in Ashburn.

Bulkhead is fine, chassis is solid but one of the rear leaf springs needs to be either tightened or replaced (my solo mechanical skills end at things that can decapitate you). I have about 10K into the truck so I would like to see somewhere around there.

I'll try to upload pics tonight, but it appeared to me to look a hell of a lot like a s3 88. PM for the owners email address.

If someone ends up buying this, I really need the front apron panel as it is unique to early SII (no A). I will trade cash plus an SIII panel.
