Bought in May 2012 as a Surf Buggy for running around Jax/St. Augustine Beaches. and it has performed flawlessly in that role. Not a restoration or a show car. This is a reliable. fun vehicle that gets lots of waves and thumbs up. Has cream colored hard top and door tops with glass in good condition. but they were removed in favor of the canvas top pictured (see one pic of the homecoming on trailer with hardtop/door tops). We love this open air 4x4. but unfortunately. with kids involved. and with me not being skilled enough to build a roll bar to put 3 point belts in. I'm selling the Rover to get a down payment on a JK Unlimited.
Obviously this isn't a new vehicle but. new parts by me:
New Bestop Highback seats up front
New Bestop fold and flip bench in the back
New 'Tuffy' Locking center consol.
New Spin On Oil Filter
New High Torque Starter
New Horse Stall Mat (3/4" rubber) Floor Mats
New Galvanized Soft Top Hoops and Hardware
New License Plate light
New Hub Seals - Real Axle
New Hub Caps - Galvanized - Rear Axle
New Rubber boots for shift lever/etc.
This Rover has been (by previous owner) converted to (-) Negative Ground Electrical and Alternator installed
This Rover has a solid. newer (by previous owner) galvanized frame that should last 50 years. even at the beach
Paint is far from perfect. but is newer (by previous owner) and is Rover Green over Rover Blue (evidence of previous color under the seats)
This Rover is 45 years old. so yes there are some dings in the panels and there is one area of the front right wing (above the bumper) with a fiberglass patch that isn't perfect.
The canvas top was included from the previous owner and it has some stains/repairs. Its character matches the vehicle and looks great.
Ignition Key does not work door locks. but door locks aren't useful if the top is always in bikini mode.
Turn signals. brake lights. high beams all work.
Fuel Gauge only works intermittently. I solve this by filling up for every trip to the beach. at 20+mpg. I haven't run out of gas yet.
4x 3 point Seat Belts included (need to fab mounting points)
Green Bible and Haynes Repair and Haynes Restoration Included
She's not a show queen. Marks her territory (leaks a little oil) as expected for a vehicle + years old.
Tougher to start on cold mornings. choke removed by previous owner. haven't gotten around to installing a new choke because it hasn't been a big problem for what I use her for.
As with any vehicle of this vintage. the transmission isn't the smoothest. so its best to double clutch.
Runs great. going to miss her.
Sold as is. where is. no warranty.
$1000 non-refundable deposit due at auction end. Balance and pick up or shipping within 30 days of auction end.
Locals are free to come by to check her out. contact me through the page to set it up.
I'll try to answer any and all questions. but I'm not a mechanic.
Get it in time to cruise the beaches this summer!!!
