Thought i'd start a thread in here about my rover 200vi which i saved from being scrapped. Picked it up today from daventry and paid £50 whole english pounds for it. Its a bit of a mess cosmetically and it is already booked in for it's head gasket and service in the new year with dave and co.
It's a shame its been left to get in the state it has but i'm pleased to say that it's in good hands now and it will be lovingly restored to (almost) it's former glory.
It's a nice spec, Heated washer jets, Electric Sunroof (no leaks!), Front fogs, original rover torch in the glove box, electric windows, original rover stereo with 6 cd changer under the passenger seat, height adjustable seats, fabric grey on black 2 tone seats and all its original books.
Work to be done is quite extensive with rust on all the arches, lacquer peel on the boot, headlamps are beyond help, abs reluctor ring has failed, battery tray has rusted, temp guage is not working and a few other minor bits and bobs. I'm hoping to have it on the road and ready for POL 2016 and with it potentially being the very last of the 1996 Vi's, i think it will have a nice story to tell by then.
