Friends we have here the last new out of the Rover dealership showroom Rover Maestro left in the UK. Maestro production ended in 1994. This incredible survivor has an interesting history. Although Rover had ceased production they continued to produce the Maestro in CKD ( completely knocked down) kit form until 1996 for export. A quantity of these kits in box's remained at the Cowley works at Oxford destined for export to Bulgaria to Rodacar motors a joint Rover Bulgarian venture. In 1997 the venture ceased. A main Rover dealership, Parkway Motors in Ledbury Herefordshire purchased the last remaining CKD kits all 621 of them a mixture of vans & cars. They then assembled the kits , it has to be said with a far far better build quality than at the old Rover factory. They sold them off over a period of time with the last assembled kits sold in 2001. The chassis number points to speculation that this car may have been the last one assembled. It was finished in Midnight Blue (Paint Code JQW) with Flint two tone velour from the Sport Crayon upholstery range. A top of the range Radiomobile radio is also in the specification.Fitted with the super reliable no nonsense Rover A+ 1.3 unleaded engine as fitted to a host of Rover & BL models for many years. SU carb, manual choke, not an ECU in sight, nothing to go wrong.You also benefit from the latest 5 speed gearbox.This car was registered by Parkway Motors on 3rd of January 2001 & a Mr Peter Cottle a local man bought it on 11th of January 2001 direct from Parkway, he drove annualy it & had it M.O.T'd every year and he kept it until his regrettable recent demise, so only 1 previous owner. He paid £8430 which is a massive £14070 in today's money. I won't bore you with superlatives & descriptions, simply the car is as new, out of the box, a few minor storage marks & that's it. The car has been fully serviced (2nd june 2020) & fully recommissioned & is MOT'd till June 2021. You can take it to the Festival of the Unexceptional Rally
& be the Star car, or put it in your garage & sit in it whilst it gains value ( Bank Rate of 0.1%. a no brainer ) or use it daily for shopping & holidays & rallies , as a very practical usable, comfy & very economic hatchback with that 1980's charm. This is the last & only chance to buy an almost new Rover car. Most other Maestro's have rusted away, but not this one, wax protected by Parkway Motors at build & all the joint sealants are intact, all factory labels, completely original, tool kit unused, 2 Rover keys & key tag, sales brochure & document pack. A reference car for museums & with only 3914 (currently) miles it's barely run in. Buying this car would be just like buying the demonstrator from your local Rover dealership, only of course there are no Rover dealerships anymore. Oh and it's only £165 per year for the road tax, talk about cheap motoring !For viewing just call, full PPE is available.
