1973 Rover 2000



1973 Rover 2000

Well here goes a story ....

It starts with the purchase of this car from a previous auction by the vendor in 2017 at a cost of £4360.

The car was then immediately treated to a full respray at a cost of £4500.

Not happy at stopping at this point the vendor then treated the car to the following.

  • New alternator
  • New Gear linkage
  • New tyres
  • New rear brake calipers
  • New brake fluid
  • New carpets.

Receipts for all the above are available and total £2130.00

So if you've been totalling these figures up as you've been reading you will come to £11,000. 

And all this was for the vendors daughters wedding.... could of been a little cheaper to perhaps hire a car, or maybe half a dozen.!!??

The Rover is here now the task of transporting the bride has been completed, so one of you today can benefit from this fantastic story ... and expenditure.

Supplied with the car is the original 'Passport To Service' Dealer guide, Radio handbook and owners manual. Lovely.

On site now for viewing.

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.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.
