Mikecoombs, thanks heaps for the offer. Unfortunately I'm strapped for cash at the moment (I'm renovating my Mum's kitchen).

I rarely do anything considered 'normal' ;)
So here's a...
So it seems the auction will be off-limits for me as I don't have a credit card. Good to know there's still plenty of parts around though.
Delicate question: how do you guys feel about modding Rovers? Are you all purists or don't mind things a little different?
Thanks for the responses everybody.
I'll check out the chassis number and see what that tells me.
The paint is most likely gone due to it sitting in the Queensland sun for God knows how many years. The tires are corroded if that's any indication.
Thanks for the link to the Auction Mike, I'll...
So I've picked up this old girl, will be a long term project for sure as I have no garage or shed as yet.
All I know for sure is that it's a Rover.
Here's some pics.
Missing guard and bonnet/grille due to an accident that happened maybe 50 years ago.... ;)
