1978 Rover SD1 2600 Ex-film car SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
Unfortunately, I have lost parking for this car and it now sits on my friends driveway waiting to be sold. I looked for a Series 1 for just under 2 years before finding this ex-film car. It was originally white and privately owned until the last owners, the film company, bought it and stored it under cover for occasional filming. This appears to have saved it from the usual ravages these cars suffered when left outside but it had started to leak in places where the biscuit tin-thin metal had perforated. That said, my local classic friendly garage of over 30 years had it up on the ramps and declared it to be very sound with only a control arm bush advisory and a number plate failure on their worry list.
I have attended to all the little leaks and even the windscreen surround (a notorious rot spot) is sound because I had the screen replaced when a scaffold board ended up in it during a storm and the windscreen company showed me it in perfect order.
This has been a slowly ongoing restoration and it is now up and running again. The carpets need to be refitted but I have some brown items to replace some of them as they look better, in my view. Having removed the grotty bulkhead soundproofing, I was going to fit new soundproofing (supplied) under the interior carpets. The headlining sags. The paintwork needs some work. But it runs and drives (auto) and is now MOT and Tax free and is registered as Historic. The tyres have loads of tread. A brand new bonnet can be negotiated and I have a replacement white tailgate as the current one had a burnt out wiring loom and was a little tatty. Fitted towbar. 86k miles.
The blue light has been disabled to comply with the law. I have magnetic covers for the POLICE signs to comply with the law. I have some spares to go with it. The interior is good. All the instruments work.
I have fitted a new timing belt, points plugs etc. thermostat, radiator repaired and pressure tested etc. etc.
These Series 1's don't come up too often so be quick. Vehicle located in Brentwood, Essex Near J29 M25.
It is currently SORN.
