One of the 405 Hunters sold. It is finished in Eastnor Green over the Brogue Brown cloth manual adjusting seats. Power comes from the standard 3.9L fuel injected V8 mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. It wears the proper tri-spoke 16″ wheels and appears to be in all-original condition with 186k miles ticked away since new…that’s 6900 miles per year if you’re doing mental math. The seller reports the frame to be in excellent condition, with only a few small rust spots on the floor and lift gate and a prior repair was made to the driver side floor pan. The seller has included over 100 high-resolution photos and a long list of items replaced over his 3 years of ownership. The seller, being one of those enthusiasts, has done an excellent job providing pictures throughout and very detailed written descriptions of his observations. Rather than view them as problem areas, respect them as an honest representation from someone who knows these trucks and has full disclosure of the items listed.
This one ships from Pennsylvania with a clean clear title. Second Daily will cover up to $200 of the cost of a pre-purchase inspection (PPI) if you order one and then go on to purchase the car. So bid with confidence knowing we’ve got you covered. You must make arrangements prior to auction close and successfully win the auction to receive the $200 credit.
The Eastnor Green paint is believed to be all original and looks to be great overall shape. It retains its factory badging and lettering, and the clear coat shows no signs of pulling away. The pictures show a few bumps and scratches this Classic has endured over the past 27 years, nothing of any unusual note or concern. The right rear panel has a scratch. The rear D-pillar vinyl has some small tears. The lift gate looks to be in good shape. A tell-tale sign of goodness is all 4 mudflaps are still intact. Might seem silly, but Rover enthusiasts know what this means. The sellers notes the driver side front floor seam had a rust repair, minor rust present at passenger side front floor seam, driver and passenger side rear floor and rocker, and minor rust present at the lift gate. All exterior lights, indicators, and horn function correctly. New tires were recently added, as was a 1″ Old Man Emu coil spring lift.
The interior is very clean and seemingly all original. The brown cloth interior shows well for its age, and the headliner and wood trim were recently replaced. The dashboard, gauge cluster, and center console are all complete and intact. The upper right dash has a crack in the plastic. Heat blows well while the wipers, lights, signals, and gauges all work exactly as they should. The seller upgraded the heat system with an Atlantic British blower motor kit, resistor pack, heater core, and changed out all pipes. The stereo is not installed, but a factory unit with code is available. Seller reports the cruise control and rear defroster are inoperable, the A/C belt will squeal on occasion. The OEM bottle jack is still present. There are no reported illuminated dash warning lights, no squeaks, rattles or other annoying noises says the seller.
The seller reports the tailpipe will need to be replaced, the steering box has the typical Rover leaks, as do the swivel balls and some minor engine oil leaks. The washer fluid reservoir also has a small leak. The following maintenance report was provided by the seller:
