Rover 820 SE , Genuine 1 Owner from new with 49k miles and full service history. Been in dry storage for years so will need recommisioned. Car starts and runs .

Bought new from Abercromby Rover Edinburgh in September 1990 by a local gentleman who always bought new Rovers. He used the car regularly until 2002 when he wanted to trade it in for a Rover 75. He wasnt happy with the trade in deal so he bought the 75 anyway but took the 820 home again and put it in the garage with it only being used very ocassionally after that.  Unfortunately the original owner is no longer with us and the family decided it was time to try and find a good home for the car. 
Body - Very solid original car. Original panels and paint throughout. Very straight. Good floors. Underbonnet was waxoyled or similar from new and is immaculate if you clean it off. Has previously had a small patches on the rear of each sill otherwise all good. Bit of surface rust on each lower rear arch. 
Interior - Totally original and very clean and tidy with no rips or tears
Mechanics - Car starts and runs. Sounds fine . As its been lying for years will obviously needs serviced and fully checked over. Think it will need a new clutch cylinder as the pedal is at the floor. Service history is as follows:
1125 - 1.11.90 - Abercromby Rover
5959 - 3.3.92 - Abercromby Rover
12039 - 2.6.93 - Abercromby Rover
21611 - 24.8.84 - Abercromby Rover
26678 - 24.8.95 - Abercromby Rover
28633 - 11.8.96 - Abercromby Rover
31444 - 18.8.97 - Independent
35216 - 20.1.99 - Independent
39647 - 6.3.00 - Abercromby Rover - Timing Belt done
Overall this is a very original example with great history which needs put back into service. We have the V5 here which states zero previous owners. Please feel free to come and see the car. We have a ramp so you can look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required please ask for a quote.
Thanks for looking
