1981 Rover SD1 3500 SE



1981 Rover SD1 3500 SE Manual.

The following information has been kindly supplied by the vehicle owner.

I purchased the Rover from a retired chap in Halifax who had owned the car since 1983. He purchased the Rover when 
it was 2 years old remaining in his ownership for 35 years.

The Rover came on the market due to the owners growing collection of cars. 

Restored in 2012 / 2013 and painted in its original pharaoh gold metallic.

Having been re-commissioned with work carried out on the fuel system and brakes before being issued with a current MOT which expires August 2019.

The engine sounds fantastic and runs well with a big 4 barrel Holley carburettor in place of the twin SU's

The gearbox is lovely and precise and everything works. The car is presented in lovely condition both inside and out 
as well as being totally solid underneath.

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.
