Possibly the most cosseted Rover Montego 1.6LX ever with just 48,365 miles.

Laminated windscreen, bronze tinted glass, body coloured bumpers and front grille, side rubbing strip, locking fuel cap, halogen headlamps, electric front windows, central locking, electric tilt/slide sunroof, electric/demisting mirrors, heated rear window, digital clock, cigar lighter, courtesy lamps, Phillips R570 stereo cassette, tachometer, warning lamp system, coin tray, vanity mirror. Dealer options; Durable acrylic headlamp covers, Montego leather steering wheel, tailored Fabric mat set, first aid kit, mudflaps.

This outstanding Montego, owned from ten months old by the only private and utterly fanatical keeper is preserved to an incredible standard. The factory original paintwork in Flame Red, (Code COF), is simply exceptional with a deep glossy shine and polished finish with absolutely no fading. The virtually spotless factory panels are completely free from corrosion or damage, as is the underside having been protected from new with rust proofing treatment. The devoted long term keeper even routinely removed the inner door cards to apply additional wax to the door bottoms, despite the car being strictly garage stored and never ever used in the rain! This unmolested showpiece displays the supplying dealer number plates and the optional acrylic headlamp covers fitted from new. The trim sections are excellent aside from small hairline cracks to the C-pillar covers. Any Montego is now a rare survivor, this example is almost beyond comprehension!

A pristine, unaltered and period interior is sure to delight and amaze fans of Austin Rover cars. The original Zenith Cloth trim in Flint, (Code LCG), remains unworn with absolutely no damage whatsoever. The matching colour keyed door cards and headlining are superb, and the cut pile carpets are beautifully preserved having been protected by two sets of mats. All functions and controls operate perfectly and the dashboard and associated switchgear are as new. The fastidious owner even tailor made a cover for the dashboard and sheaths to place over the door lock buttons to protect them from the sun! The factory fitted Phillips R570 radio cassette remains fitted and operational. With a reputation for fragility, the exceptional interior of this cosseted Montego is a credit to its devoted owner.

This Montego LX features the standard 1598cc OHC four cylinder engine with electronic carburettor control developing 86bhp at 5600rpm. With a top speed of 103mph and 0-60 covered in 11.2 seconds, this car feels lively and surprisingly refined. The engine bay is beautifully clean, unaltered and displays factory panel stampings, plates and even fragile stickers. The five speed transmission is light, smooth and effortless.

The standard 14in wheels wear the original and correct 1.6LX specification hubcaps in perfect order, un-badged as specified by Rover. The 185/65 R14 tyres have good tread remaining and the original Goodyear tyre remains fitted and unused to the spare wheel. The Austin Rover polystyrene circular insert holds the jack, wheel brace and hub cap puller. Diagonally split dual circuit brakes with servo assistance and front discs bring the car up straight and steady.

Registered new by the Rover Group MCP Department as a company vehicle on the 20th June 1991, the first and only private keeper purchased the car when it was just ten months old on the 23rd April 1992. Rover Main Dealer, Henlys of Northampton, supplied the vehicle to Miss Zoe Waterfield after she specified particularly that she wanted a Flame Red Montego with electric windows, sunroof and central locking! The used vehicle invoice in the colossal history file illustrates the price paid of £6,500 and is accompanied by the Henlys pre-sale checklist and welcome letter. To say that Miss Waterfield is renowned and respected within the Austin-Rover community is a huge understatement, and her dedication to her beloved brand knows no limits with countless visits to Longbridge and even actively protesting the BMW takeover of Rover in January 1994. Her fanatical following even earned her rare and confidential items such as Top Secret ‘Introducing the Austin’ and Pocket Guides held by Austin Rover Sales staff only, all retained in the Henlys wallet alongside the original stamped service booklet, handbooks and dealership literature.

Despite the low mileage of just 48,365 and the car being stored throughout each winter, the beautifully presented and chronological history folder is simply huge. Virtually every MOT certificate, invoice, receipt and even a journey log have been kept. Furthermore, there are articles, club membership literature, photographs and awards as well as three sets of keys including the grey master. An unmissable opportunity to acquire one of the best, unmolested and original Montego’s in existence.

MOT June 2018, HPI Clear.
