1997 Rover 820 Sterling

The vendor has kindly supplied the following information.

A Scottish barn find ,SORN since 2013, this car had a charmed life in Edinburgh. Covering a mere 56,000 miles, comes with lots of old MOT's, and service hiostory.

Whilst in the barn the paintwork suffered from bird droppings, all the paintwork has been refreshed. 

This Rover coupe comes with the reliable Honda 1994cc engine with a smooth 5 speed manual gearbox . Finished in the best colour with matching grey leather. 
The current vendor worked for the Rover Group during the mid 90s at the time Kevin Keegan was the Newcastle United manager a similar model finished in Champagne Gold was supplied by the local dealer Colbrook and Burguss . Since then trying to find a good example is becoming very rare and hard to find .

DVLA states some 55 example exist with only 17 on the road .
A stylish comfortable coupe , with plenty of charisma.
