ROVER 825 Di 2675cc TURBO INTERCOOLED DIESEL 5 SPEED MANUAL
VERY RARE CAR WITH AN INTERESTING & FULL HISTORY. 1 OF 6 ON THE ROAD, see howmanyleft. Comes with a fuel log of every drop of fuel since 26/03/99
27/05/1997 P Reg 1st owner was Rover, it was then registered to a lady owner 26/03/1999 @ 8809 miles who owned the car until 05/01/18, it then went to the Editor Danny Hopkins of that fine Magazine Practical Classics, Danny run the car in a winter warmers feature in the mag then I bought the car 05/04/18.
154015 MILES service history in the book 20k 1/7/00. After this there is a huge folder full of receipts and inspection sheets detailing the work and parts over the years right up to Oct 2017, 145k. I have changed the oil, filter, & fuel filter @ 151126 04/05/18. It also had 4 NEW CALPIERS DICS AND PADS ALROUND NOT CHEAP!! To say this car has a full history is a bit of an understatement I am not listing it all, anyone really interested in buying the car can read it when they view
MOT 12th April 2020 1 Advisory. Please check the MOT history to verify the mileage.
It's got PAS, Climate Control Rover Audio. Rake steering wheel and front seat height adjustment. 2 key fobs. Inside is in very good condition (see Pics) Full handbook packs & Genuine Rover Workshop manuals old V5’s & mot’s all with the car.
BODYWORK IS IN very good condition for the age and miles (see pics) USE THE ZOOM BUTTON. It would benefit from a little tidying but I didn’t do it as I like it as it is, wouldn’t be that difficult to make it a real show winner.
I really don’t want to sell it, it drives lovely, it’s very comfortable on long runs and the VM engine is more than up to the job, it’s quite refined and has good low and mid-range punch. I also like the fact that you really don’t see these on the road anymore, in fact in the time I have owned this one I haven’t see another diesel one. So the reason for sale, as you can see from the mot history I haven’t done that many miles & the ones I have done have been mostly motorway, I just can’t drive a manual anymore, I have to have automatic as a daily or even weekend car, I can’t see it sit here and not be used and enjoyed by someone who will no-doubt enjoy this lovely rare old car.
I am not going to give it away so please don’t make silly offers, I really recommend you come & see it for yourself. I would be as confident to drive this anywhere as I would a new car, but in saying that I am not able to deliver.
