For sale is our 1998 rover 820 vitesse coupe.
We have owned the car for the last 14 months. Only selling as we want a rover 75 v8 so need the space.
This car is by no means perfect. It’s a very good useable car that we have enjoyed owning. Unfortunately the car doesn’t have a lot of service history at all. But any records can be obtained through the dvla.
bodywork is ok. No mayor Rust just slight bubbling to 3 of the arches. the sills are still in tact with no signs of rust. Does have touch ups here and there with usual age related marks. Small dent in the front drivers arch. Never bothered us. At some stage the boot has been sprayed. The area surrounding the number plate is not the best but again can’t really notice unless close up. Couple of broken clips on the rear bumper.
Mechanically the car drives fine. Pulls as it should even with the mileages. We had an all new clutch replaced and the flywheel skimmed at great expense. This was done at the same time as the MOT which runs out in December 2019.
Interior is clean with no ripsaw major marks. Interior is luxury and comfortable. Very slight dash lift but not bad from what I’ve seen of others. Recently developed a leak on the inside. We think from the scuttle panel. Just not had the time to get it sorted. Car was fully serviced but at a mates garage. I can give a number to call to clarify the work.
Car was recently at pride of longbridge and had many nice comment. A great little car to buy and enjoy. Feel free to call and ask any question. Happy to answer. Not many of these cars left now. Not the best out there but by no means a project car. Starts first time every time. NUMBER PLATE is not included in the sale. Final reduction in price. 2000 surly a bargain!! Failing this will be stripped I’m afraid.
This is the final reduction in price for this rare car
