My latest Rover SD1 2600 Vanden Plas
Well here it is my latest Rover SD1.
A 1984 2600 Vanden Plas auto.
The car was spotted for sale and after several phone calls it was mine.
I bought the car "blind" but the previous owner knew his stuff about the cars so I felt safe to do so.
Once funds has been sent I then had the issue of recovering a car that had been off the road for years from the Essex area to Leicestershire!!
I found the site called Any Van and quickly found a truck and driver to collect the car.
The car was delivered to me quickly and safely with no issues at all even though I was more than a little nervous about the whole situation.
A bit battered but nowhere near as bad as I had somehow convinced myself it would be.
The engine did not want to awaken from its long slumber but after a service and some fresh fuel the old duffer coughed into life and then insisted on cutting out when ever the engine was warm......hmmm not ideal.
The paint is shot but so far the main shell is pretty solid.
Its going to need at least inner and outer sills both sides and also a repair to the nearside rear quarter but the main thing is I have an SD1 again
