Just spotted it myself on E-bay and checked to see if anyone else had here (To post the spot) ?

So I'll add the photo's (With links) so there some pictures to look at within the thread 8)

As the saying goes 'They keep coming out of the Woodwork' but as this has got a reserve on the listing I'm sure its going to be a four figure amount going on what Tim's n/a 1.9 DTR recently achieved !

However reading thro' the sellers listing again as its on SORN it doesn't mention any MOT/TAX on it so it could end up being quite a good buy ?

Good luck whoever secure this one !

Edit:- Just noticed the same seller has a ROVER 820 SI (another project for Tim maybe) and a VOLVO 740 GL maybe Mickey Taker will be interested in this one ?

:lol:

So it does all look like a genuine sell up of fathers vehicle collection :(

I didn't add the pictures as if anyone's viewing on their phone using 3G it could take a while to load them all :lol:

Horrible thing, but for someone who likes them that's pretty special!

I quite like the Rover 800 series. Especially in fastback guise. Had one for a while in the early '90's. Very smoooth and relaxing. Almost as nice as an XM in some respects.

Currently 2 -Bids and standing @ £740 !

I'm only guessing but IMHO this one may end up @ over the £2k possibly even nearer to £3K mark if you can remember what the non-running Gold MK1 B650 CHJ with 5,800 miles realised 15 months ago (£1850 hammer price+ taxes):-

If that burnt oil I'd be soooooo all over it I'd spoil the paintwork!!! God how I wish my Dads mk 1 fell into my hands. It fell into my sisters hands, with a recon engine, and within a few months of ownership it was crashed into, repaired by Dad and then shortly later scrapped with 'shot suspension ' Dad bought that car in 1985 (B plate) for £6k with thé same mileage.
Sorry for thé french angle, appropritate as it is, but i just mistaenly changée toi French. P.s. Key board key lay out is wierd

Well the DTR fetched £1900. but that did have 12 months MOT, but had nearly 4 times the mileage although it is rarer than a GT.
