My 1994 Rover 220 GSi

#1 Post by MisterH » Thu May 28, 2020 1:11 pm

This will be up for sale soon, so have been taking some nice pictures, let me know what you think!

While this is not an advert as such, I want this car to go to an enthusiastic home, as it really is a special example. Petrolblog is going to do an article on it soon, so the 'campaign' so to speak will start then, but I was quite proud of the photos I took.

Not decided on price but thinking around the £3.5k mark

Many thanks
Hope all are well
Ben

As you've marketed the car I deleted my content regarding price; the system wouldn't let me remove the post just the content.

Good luck with the sale Rover R8's have been undervalued to date, which hampers their preservation imo.

Thank you, do you reckon I am asking too much?
I don't suppose anyone on here would be interested?

High price = long wait

It’s priced right but I can only count on my fingers the amount of people I know that will pay that much for a rover.

It’s also the absolute worst time, with job insecurity and living on the bread line for 2-3 months will all add to your wait.

Also the lack of shows where people can see the cars in the flesh are all detrimental to quick sales.

I think it’s a tad over given the issues that need fixing. An enthusiast would want to resolve those and it would cost £ which all has to be accounted for.

You raised good points: Its nearly the best out there, but nearly isn't enough. As such I've reduced the price to £3470, which is more reasonable

A very nice in fact concours Mk 1 MR2 went for £7.5k? on this new car show with Drew Pritchard & Paul Cowley the other day. P.C's C/D value is about 5! Must have been filmed before Corona struck though!
