Sellers original description:
Very rare low mileage Rover 800 2L Si - Immaculate collectible condition.
Owned by an elderly gentleman since new, who has sadly had to give up driving, we are now looking for a good home for his Rover 820i.
Regularly serviced and maintained by his local Rover specialist garage, and with only 21,000 miles on the clock, this is an immaculate vehicle.
Garaged from new, the metallic gold paintwork is bright and shiny with no signs of any rust and as he was a very careful driver, there are none of the usual scrapes or dinks.
The light cream interior of the car is as if it was new, with no wear or marks to any of the upholstery. The car has never been smoked in and there is no evidence of dogs.
The plastic trim is all perfect, and the walnut dash trim is excellent.
The car drives as you would expect for the mileage, the engine is smooth and quiet as is the gearbox, which is manual.
As far as we are aware, all the electrics in the car work, front and rear electric windows, factory fit sunroof, electric mirrors, radio/cassette. The rear boot carpet is like
new,the spare wheel is good and the tool kit looks as if it has never been used.
Over the last few years the Rover 800 has had a new rear exhaust box, radiator, new battery, 2 new tyres, timing belt and regular servicing, for which all the invoices are available.
Service invoices are
2000 15,397 miles Annual Service/MOT
2001 16,649 miles Annual Service/MOT including timing belt and new radiator
2002 17,799 miles Annual Service/MOT
2003 19,014 miles Annual Service/MOT
2004 19,532 miles Annual Service/MOT
2005 19,926 miles Annual Service/MOT
2006 20,351 miles Annual Service/MOT
2007 20,688 miles MOT
2008 20858 miles MOT
2009 20978 miles MOT
2010 21044 miles MOT
For the last 4 years, due to the exceptionally low mileage usage (500 miles), it was deemed only necessary to carry out an annual MOT.
All the servicing and any extra incidental work has been carried out by the same Rover specialist garage.
This is the perfect car for any Rover 800 enthusiast and would make a perfect show car due to the condition.
