Series IIA 88 Hard top
This 88 has come all the way from Alaska for ECR to do a full mechanicalrestoration, and refurbish of the paint and body, options will include everythingfrom a rear ARB air locker to high back seats, rock sliders (Bear Bars)to Defender style wheel flares. Humble beginings to be sure, but a goodplace to start.
Here you can see that the Rover has been stripped down, the bulkhead hasbeen repaired with new correct panels, the new galv. coil chassis set up,and the new Turner engine and R380 5 speed set up on the rolling chassis.
Here you can see the new Turner 2.25 engine, dual power disc brake system,new radiator support and more in this clean engine bay.
The owner chose Defender style flares, ( you can see the body has been modifiedto accept them) alpine windows and a number of other options for his 88.No problem, here you can see a number of those options already done, andthe windows being installed.
This 88 now has its flares installed along with its newly painted rims,Defender style door tops and more. Still to come are a roof rack, rear ladder,can racks and rock sliders. All custom built by ECR.
