Several were apparently sold to foreigners residing in the US. One German, one Brit, and one from France. I had "guessed" that HDO meant that they were sent to a "Specialty" shop for modification. 50 "specialty" shops in 2 countries is not logical.

    Our unit was very expensive. With 4 ton Koenig Winch, powered off the front PTO, I paid just under $6K for it. That was 6 months pay for a USMC Captain. The sales to "Foreigners" may be a clue. Extending credit to non-citizens was not a common practice. It is possible that HDO meant that the unit was pre-paid.

    The photo's showed about the same interior as Clarence. The metal plate in your bottom photo is the only non-factory component shown in these photo's. The under seat heater was most certainly an "add-on". It was not offered when I purchased Clarence. If I can be of any help email me at redbrush2@yahoo.com.

    Could HDO stand for Home Delivery Offering or something to that effect. My truck was one:
    B 174 34300176 17 Jun 1966 04 Jul 1966 Red HDO Moore, Altadena, Rover, New York

    I can tell you since I have all the original documentation on my truck that the original owner "Moore" ordered her truck direct from the UK. She then flew there, drove it all over Europe, and shipped it back to the USA. I have the import docs and everything for it but she also told me as much the one time we talked.

    Cool. It is still Limestone on the inside. I know the owner who has it for the last 40 years or so. Strange how it ended up in quebec.

    I own #808, while was registered as a 1969. Would you mind sharing the production data?
    Thanks,

    Michel

    Michael, 808 began production 3 September 1968 and was completed 20 September 1968. It was painted Light Green. It, along with the other 7 finishing the Production of the 2.6 NADA, was shipped to Leyland, Vancouver.


    Attention all hands! If in the past 9 years you asked me for help, and did not get it, or were not satisfied with my response, try again and I'll try to do better.

    Thanks! I always thought that all NADA - 6 cylinder were made in 1967. This explains why mine was registered as a 1969.

    Cheers,

    Default #757 - nada 109

    Purchased 34300757A in Sept 2018 in Armstrong BC. Undergoing full frame off restoration as chassis is disintegrating. Previous owner(s) did not take good care of it at all - mostly patched over rusty bits and body damage. Basically left for dead. Looking forward to reviving this to its former glory.Click image for larger version.

    Hey all. Jason out in The State of Jefferson (Northern California) here. Picked up number 168 last August it had been sitting on the side of the road since 2011 according to the PO. Itís got a Scottyís 250 conversion and need plenty of talc to bring it back to life it doesnít show well but with a little elbow grease I think it will be back on rev road soon. This is my first series truck but I have owned 3 other more modern rovers. Iím sure Iíll have plenty of questions in the future. Hope yíall donít mind me asking. Click image for larger version.
