Very possibly the best example anywhere.

New badges, number plates, switches, wheels, handles…everything replaced and cleaned. Completely refreshed and as new.

All credit to Safrane Dave who has spent a lot of time and money on this car getting it to this level. I have had it a month and shall be fitting brand new wheel arch liners to finish the car off.

One problem…I am too afraid to drive the thing on the road in case it gets dirty.

It's a cracker Brad.  Send it up here and I will give it a few camping and fishing trips to "break it in" Laugh

Thanks for posting the photos, Brad, it looks magnificent. Dave certainly spent a lot of time and money bringing it up to that condition. With the exception of the 8,000 mile minter, I doubt there's another in the UK in that condition.

I've got two more VS but not as nice. Again, both 3.5 models.

If you want to see real originality, I recently sold a 1989 Rover Sterling which had done 54 miles from new. I also looked after a 1988 Rover 213 which had done 13 miles from new. The lowest mileage car I have is a 8500 mile Rover 800 Coupe (1992, Gold with cream leather and mine from new). You can't beat a low mileage car as long as it's been stored professionally.

Thanks for the nice, witty and tongue in cheek comments

That's what I call low mileage! How much did you sell it for, out of interest?

Cool For sale?

I'd best not say how much I sold it for as the buyer wanted it kept private. He's in Germany which is where the car is now, residing with a collection of 65 Triumphs and Austins. Of interest to you might be that I bought the car with 48 miles on it from a retired solicitor in Woking who also had ( and may still have) an unused zero miles 1970 Renault 10 in his ownership together with a useable Ford Model T. There are some real gems out there if you start looking.

The 8500 mile 800 Coupe is not for sale at any price. I do have another, though, with higher miles, which I have dry stored at home in a heated environment since 1999. It's never been wet and just needs recommissioning which is what I have just started to do. It is unmarked apart from a very small scrape on a rear wheel arch where I caught it with my Ford Granada a few years ago. It's an original August 1992 car, one of the first registered and still has its original tyres, exhaust and brake pads – which all need replacing due to age.
