Remarks

The vehicle was used on the road from new until 2000 when it was garaged and ceased to be used. In 2015 the owner started his own restoration but stalled after stripping the car to a shell for paintwork At the start of this year I bought the car and had the restoration work completed, the previous keeper had amounted a huge amount of NOS parts from Rover in the preceding year so most the new items fitted were actually new. The car had a glass out full interior out respray approximately 5 years ago before the original restoration stalled.In very good condition after being resprayed. Some very minor contamination/ defects but overall an easy 8/10 Alloys and tyres perfect Bumpers and trim work new.
