All in all around 500 hours invested by my partner building her back ip, ommercially totally unviable but from an enthusiastic look it was worth every hour.
You will not find a nicer Series III 5 door. She will make a great daily driver and is 100% ready to go. I would drive this Rover cross the United States its that good.
Price includes Shipping to RORO shipping stateside all customs, nd import charges. Im leaving it in the UK like most my stuff as storage space is tight in VT during the winter. Happy to Talk Rover's any time 802-324-3370 Derek
