Default Rover P5 4wd special

How about this beastie ?

STRANGE ROVER P5B COUPE BUILT BY OVERFINCH on eBay (end time 10-Jan-11 21:26:53 GMT)

Do the Silverton's still have anything to do with Overfinch ?

That's an amusing car, but it is not for me. As I understand it the Silvertons have nothing to do with the company currently trading as Overfinch, which was recently bought out of administration by Auto-Brokers. Arthur Silverton offered real automotive engineering products for Land Rovers through Overfinch in the 1970s and early 80s, but the people who took over from him have offered less and less engineering, and more and more purely cosmetic stuff (body kits, trim, etc.), and they have gone bust several times. I would imagine that the Silvertons would not wish to be associated with the rather shambolic company that Overfinch became. One would hope the new owners can do much better.
