You will not find many vintage Rovers as nice as this one!  Complete restoration from head to toe.   I tried to keep much of the original vintage look while adding some really cool upgrades and accessories along the way.   I came across this diamond in the rough about 1 year ago and as soon as I set eyes on it I knew this had the potential to be an incredible ride.   My passion is the journey of a restoration so it's time for me to move on to the next project.
