1974 Rover 2200 SC P6

We've been waiting to collect this car for six weeks during which time convincing ourselves it probably won't be a particularly good example, How wrong we were!

Finished in lunar grey with beautiful black leather upholstery.  A large history file includes receipts, MOT history, sales brochure, spare keys and the original passport to service booklet fully stamped confirming its current mileage of 66,000.  Stunning throughout and most importantly it smells as a Rover should.

The vendor has supplied the following information.

  • In Lunar Grey, black pleated leather interior with 'ET' headrests. Built 20 Dec 1974 (on Heritage Certificate).
  • Fourth owner, since March 2016. With 66,050 miles only, all documented back to first owner. 
  • Considerable history file includes Rover 'Passport to Service' booklet, two sets of keys, original fob. (On 29.06.2000, the last service stamp records 43,149).
  • Cooling assisted by Kenlowe fan.
  • The vehicle is always garaged, predecessor (owned ten years) kept it in garage with humidifier. It is not 'concourse' but very tidy and clean. It smells almost new, feels tight to drive, is an absolute pleasure and despite single carb, impressively swift! I drive her on dry days, at least every fortnight for about 12-20 plus miles, with occasional longer journeys.
  • In my ownership, I have replaced the exhaust manifold (the last 'new old stock' off J.R. Wadham's shelf), replaced the seat belts, fixed a minor leak in the brake caliper, had the front seats professionally reupholstered, new alternator last year, and a new coil in the last month.
  • A former several time show winner with previous owner, a few points of detailing would make the car truly excellent.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.
