1982 Rover SD1 2300S. 45,000 Genuine Miles. For Sale

Parked in a Nissen hut 18 years ago by the elderly owner, with just 45,150 recorded miles, this 1982 Rover SD1 2300S was discovered earlier this year and fully recommissioned for the road by a Rover SD1 Owners' Club member. Recommissioning work has included all oils and filters being changed to correct factory specification, coolant and brake fluid changed, brakes replaced and professionally set up along with the carburettor and a new alternator has been fitted. A good set of correct alloys with Goodyear tyres were fitted and the car was submitted for its first MoT in 20 years, which it passed first time, with just one advisory - "car undersealed".

The engine is perfect, as you'd expect from a car which has covered just 45,000 miles from new and has been so comprehensively serviced recently. I have driven over 1,000 miles now and the car has been 100% reliable, including long-distance runs up and down the country, which it all takes in its stride. You can use it everyday if you so wish and live as if it were 1982.

Being the 6-cylinder 2300 engine, it is quiet and refined with good fuel economy compared to the more common V8. It handles better, too. It always starts first time and runs perfectly, without misfires or overheating. It does not burn oil or use any coolant; exactly what you'd expect of a car which has covered so few miles. It is ready to take you wherever you wish to go.

It has four electric windows, sunroof and an automatic gearbox, which all make for a comfortable and relaxing drive. The interior is all original and in good order throughout. It is a practical and spacious vehicle and this SD1 is ready for everyday use, or can be easily improved and kept for shows. I have regularly taken the car to classic car shows throughout the summer and it gets a lot of attention!

An iconic car of the '80s and an appreciating asset, with V8 models selling for up to £20,000 in Vitesse form, this is an opportunity to obtain one of the few remaining low mileage SD1s with excellent provenance for a decent price. It should prove to be a wise investment as the number of available cars diminish with time. I am only selling due having over 50 cars in my collection and would like to free up some garage space. Further cars will be available for sale in due course.
