It depends on what your definition of reasonable cost is. It looks bad IMO, it would not be cost effective. If you are a body/repair shop and your own labor doesn't cost you anything, that could be different, but then I suppose you wouldn't be here asking our opinions if you were a professional.

WOW! I'm looking at the pictures thinking hmm I dont see any damage, ooh I love the interior and then I saw the front :shock: THE FRONT IS MELTED! Wonder if they ran into a volcano. I guess thats one place Rovers cant go. IMO it looks bad. Especially for the price they're asking. Just figure out what it needs and do the numbers. If you're not a shop or at least know enough about fixing it I'd leave it alone.

6500 pounds is around $12,000 in the US. An 05 here might be 18 - 23K here, and with a frame swap, wiring harness, engine, transmission and any other hidden damage, you would probably exceed its retail value. Then the resale value would be significantly affected.

I addition there would be a great deal of work on the inside from smoke damage and possibly water damage. "Projects" like this are best put out of their misery and should only be used as organ donors.

For the seats and door panels, you may want to check on the smell first. There may be both smoke and water damage.

You'll need to find a shop able to fit a whole new front clip to the truck, it will cost you more in cash and headaches than buying a 2008 would.

Basically the whole front end of the truck would need to be reconstructed as anything up front now will never be structural again.

All that's good for is low balling the price and parting it out for as much profit as possible.

6500Euros! :shock: That guy is hucked in the fead. 02/03's w/minor accident damage or a blown motor/tranny go for just slightly more.

There was an interior with door panels on ebay.uk a couple of days (weeks?) ago. IIRC, the auction only had a couple of hours left and with a starting price of 1200GBP, no bids. 'Course, if someone needed an entire interior, that'd be a bargain.

I'd def follow rfdiii's advice above and check for smoke damage before plunking down any money. You know how the campfire smell doesn't get out of your clothes for a day or 2...
