Hi and welcome!

The purchase is the cheap part. It's the time afterwards that is the pricey bit! Wink

Don't forget some pics of the new Landy too! Very Happy

Welcome to the forum.

Good luck with the rebuild. Will you be keeping the Rover engine in place?

Cheers
Geoff

Welcome to the forum, any questions, just ask.
Wouldn't mine a v8 series myself. Smile

Yay! Nice one, if the conversion was done in the mid 1990's or before and has V8 on the logbook, then you have that much value (and more) in the logbook alone due to 'Grandfather Rights'. These allow you to retain the original registration and any other strange conversions that were accepted at the time, that today would require an SVA test or a Q Plate!!
