Geoff, I'd by pass this car, way too many issues and
costs. It would take lot's of money and time to get
right. It would still be a rhd, if you don't mind,
that would be a non-issue. It would still be a low
valued car to everyone, other than to us on this list
as well. Yet, costs as much as an Austin Healey to
restore, but yet return only a third of the
investment. Of course this isn't why we buy Rovers to
begin with. If you do get it, I wish you all the luck.
