Looks like it didn't sell the first time, with a fixed price, so is now open for bidding.

Random stuff.....

 

I'd maybe use the steering box, but most of the rest of that I'd want paying to take away

'currently the interior is removed to allow fitting a new floor... possible jobs needed completely new suspension and a battery'

I suspect a battery would be the least of the problems :-)

I imagine cruising anywhere in that would be an achievement and quite possibly terrifying :-)

That is awful. Someone should just punch the seller in the face.

I'm not sure about Mad max - more of a dodgy Gilbert thing really.

Built in 1994

Took 2 years to build

Current owner bought in 1997.

So the builder was too embarrassed after the first MOT to take it to another.

Not used since 2001

So the current owner only managed 4 years before being too embarrassed to use it.

Surely you would at least try to match the wheelbases together?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-90-A90NVU-008-OF-THE-PRODUCTION-LINE-/311796104752?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276

£5k+ for a completely fubar 90 just because it was 008 off the production line.... so not only do you get a rust bucket, but you get one without any of the small tweeks that actually improved the thing. I find this kind of stuff a bit odd.

I would like the truck as its an early example and I do enjoy the no faff factor of them, but selling it for an uber inflated amount as it wan n+1 vehicle off the production line kinda makes me grumpy...

Ha I like that especially the detail in the item description!

Curious though Bowie69, which search term did you use? MAN CAVE SHED HIDEAWAY or ESCAPE or indeed combinations of them??

"A term used to describe that one little room (or garage) that the man of the household is given permission by his wife or girlfriend to furnish how he wants and do whatever he wants in it. It should be noted that the word 'man' is used very loosely when referring to a man cave. A real man doesn't allow himself to be shoved into one corner of his own house.

So, you’ve lost your way and she’s taken over the whole house? Kids running riot? Nowhere left to escape to? Have no fear, I can help. This is the perfect little hideaway for you to decorate how you want and have no interference from your wife/girlfriend/mummy. The extra benefit of this is that it’s painted in a camouflage design on the outside, so she won’t even be able to see it in the first place to try and have some input about how and what you decorate it with, just sit it in your garden and you’re good to go.

With ample room inside for a table, a few chairs, a nice big TV and a fridge for all your manly beverages, it’s the most ideal place to escape the daily problems of modern day life and just relax. Invite some mates over and enjoy the big game.

It’s also the perfect place to just have some quiet time, just shut the door and enjoy the peace. The perfect excuse to start that hobby you’ve always wanted to do."

By eBay standards the copy is great, too.

It popped up in my feed, probably because I have been looking at prefab buildings recently :)
