Owners Manual

!! I'm proposing a Special Award for anyone who can say they bought their truck for less than the cost of this manual :shock: Any claimants yet? (I'm not quite in the running - yet)

If that is what a manual fetches these days, maybe I should start looking after the truck :?


On the other hand, it may be too late.

Never mind the truck, look after the manual! I'm just glad I've kept my hardback copy pristine indoors all these years while I have a paperback copy in the vehicle. My trucks haven't been so lucky - they have to stand out in all winds and weathers - I really, really want one of those Aussie 'sheds' :(

This 1969 owners handbook in perfect condition for the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow only made £52 on ebay yesterday (less than half):

While another Stage 1 owners manual made £78 last month, just before the one linked to in my original post (£113):

(Does this support my claim to be a member of the most exclusive club in the world?? :D )

Looks like they looked after this manual barely any better than they did the vehicle, but it's still attracting money:

"the land rover has since rusted away (as they do) and been broken up (15 years ago)"

"as they do" !!! :( :shock: :? :x :roll: Hope the manual makes so much money they wonder what the vehicle itself would be worth by now if they'd actually looked after it! :cry:
