1972 ROVER 2000TC - 2 OWNERS, 36K MILES, WHAT A GEM! For Sale

Here's my delightful Rover 2000TC in Mexico Brown. This is a unique example in that she has covered a mere 36,000 miles from new with just two owners! The first family bought her at new and kept her until 2003 (31 years of ownership). During that time, she motored just 26,000 and there's a abundance of paperwork in the file to back that up. Then, in 2003,she moved to Ireland and owner number two. There she did around 10,000 in 15 years giving us the current total of less than 37,000 miles from new. The fact that she was a TC (twin carbs obviously) really appealed to me - the later ones such as mine were treated to the same dash layout as the V8 and so how beautiful is that! - and of course the car's provenance was a huge pull as well. Yes, we know. Bank managers, solicitors, doctors et al. The Rover was still a cut above. But I think the TC is a cut above again! So solid. Even removed the back seats (separate) to see the floor areas and they are all still factory finish with a bit of seam sealer here and there. Superb cream Buckskin leather inside and that great dash. Drives like a nearly new car. So positive on the gears and such a lovely cruise. With the heater on and the smell of leather. Wow, off you go! History-wise, all miles stack up and there's loads of interesting stuff in there like type written letters to the dealer Passport to Service book and on and on it goes. She does not pretend to be councours and that's an area I have never supported. Each to their own. But she's A1 and go and find better with these miles, this history and this driveability. Not sure what else I can say. Come and see; come and see her in action. Just lovely! I brought her back from Ireland and had her original UK identity and plates re-instated, and so you see her now. What a gem! All my classic cars are treated as the equivalent of motoring antiques. This one, for example, is 47-years-old. They cannot be compared to the wife's six-month-old Chelsea tractor and they are bound to come with imperfections, quirks and bits and pieces that will need attention even if it is some time in the future. They do however come with oodles of charm, appeal and are there to be loved like a family pet. If you are new to the classic car scene, then please bear all this in mind. Most examples have clearly had work over the decades and I cannot predict how much or how little they will need in the future. That, I am afraid, is the nature of the beast in the world of classic cars. Motoring antiques is what they are. I love my Georgian dining table, but I can see all the scars and signs of previous woodworm. Had I wanted a brand new table, I would have gone to Oak Furniture Land. Well perhaps. Demand is outstripping supply these days and they don't make the old girls any more. So, make some allowances and drive away with a smile on your face. It goes with the territory, and therefore must be accepted, that they are always going to need on-going care, attention and repair. Don't tell me some way down the line that the full beam doesn't work or that you have discovered something I knew nothing about. They are bloody old. It happens. They come in and they go out. It seems as though I have become a "re-homer" of classic cars. I accept all major debit cards and a ten per cent deposit is required at the point of sale with the balance due within three days. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote. Thanks for reading, Martin. (07595-020282).
