Default 2003 Rover 75 Estate looking for new home!

2003 (53 plate) Rover 75 Estate – mileage 125k, diesel engine working soundly when last used (November 2017). Manual Box.
Went into my local garage for a charging fault – they replaced the battery and was then quoted £400 for a new alternator – they can’t be THAT expensive surely? L Also mysteriously developed a “twanging” sound when steering put on/near full lock when it came out of the garage (wasn't doing so when it went in.....) but they denied they’d caused it….. L

So basically I couldn’t afford to have it repaired, and sadly still can’t, but would dearly love to…… bottom-line is that the car is IMHO too good to scrap, as it had been regularly maintained and repaired since I’ve had it (May 2015) – it was my daily use car and also towed our caravan all over the country several times a year.

If someone would like to take it on and get it repaired, then you'd have a good motor, which should go on for a good while yet. My wife is now hassling me to get it shifted asap as it’s currently parked in front of the access gates to our caravan storage at the back of the house (and not currently driveable).

Obviously it has no MOT and is currently declared as SORN.

Currently stored outside (has been since it stopped working) - all tyres are sound with plenty of tread left.

Car is silver with black interior/trim. I can’t attach photos to this post but if you contact me I can supply some…...

Has towbar with 7 pin (12N) electrics – I had it fitted in 2015.

Looking for any sensible offer around £200 - it will need it trailering or low-loading away (obviously).

I’m in Sacriston, a village a few miles NW of Durham.
