homeless Car saved from longbridge in the sky again !!

#1 Post by RGNEAVE » Fri Jan 25, 2013 12:13 pm

Well found my next project.

P Reg Rover coupe SE in Night fire red

On first inspection looks like only small 2p size bit of rust on rear arch. Missing the drivers door card and its on steel wheels !

Collecting tomorrow but only seen picturs so will only see this when we are collecting on trailer.

Will update more when collected

Was going to strip for spares for my others as prices are geting higher and some silly but the body looks good.

Will update tomorrow at 4pm when collected and i have images avalable

Well after a nice trip to collect im very happy with the car.

Needs a really good clean.
Starts first time on key without any problems.
No major issues with engine ( Could have hg failer but need to test )
bodywork good but a few light scratches
only 1 very small amount of rust on pasangers rear lower arch
runing on steels but has alloy wheel nuts !

Seats good and no rips
center console broken
no radio
only 1 key and fob
glass bag


Taxed until end of fed and mot until august 1 advisory on rear break pipe.

Not bad for a wopping £250

Shes sleeping in my gararge until summer know

I hope people like the images

Good old ebay.

Seller had the cars / motorbikes / other not cars for sale.

Sellers discription was totaly incorrect for the condition age.

See discription
n red good condition 1996 n reg 93k electric windows power steering central locking with fob very clean inside and outside is great condition for its age only a little rust on rear arch and door card has sloped off drive great with no bangs or knocks I only have the v5 as I have lost the logbook but you will be able to get one from dvla at no charge and I will do a history check so you no all is in order any more information please ask a great car and becoming rare now
Was down as an N reg and no drivers door card and no V5

N reg = P Reg
No doorcard = Attached but not the best
No v5 = Found and in post to me as we speak ( have an emailed copy as proof and a full recipt )


Did a search for rover coupe and she poped up.

Was trying to sell for £300 and i messaged the seller i would give £200 if not sold and we agreed on 250

Was after for spares for my others not to keep.

Going to stick her on my multicar insurance this week and take if for a test drive saturday to check for problems.

Only major issue is its on steels with Alloy wheel nuts and the radiator needs replacing not leaking just old and the air box is broken and fixed with a bit of card.
