Default Pre-production 75 V6 Connoisseur

Hereís my pre-production 75 Iíve owned since 2017-I did have it listed for sale a short while back, but I sold another one of my cars and decided to keep this, being how rare it is.

Currently on 38k miles, it was resprayed fully in 2020 with every exterior chrome piece being renewed with genuine new old stock that I procured from across Europe (many hours spent snuffling like a digital truffle pig around the dark corners of the internet!).

One previous owner to me and before him (sadly deceased now it seems, which Iím guessing prompted the sale of the car) the car was registered to Rover. A knowledgeable soul from this parish has suggested it might be one of the Tower Bridge cars, going by the chassis number.

Lovely car, looking very beautiful. How about changing the rusted bolds and screws under the bonnet so it looks even more new? A real beauty with great rims.

Iíve got a set to do it funnily enough! Unfortunately any car work has been severely curtailed at the moment after breaking my left leg a month ago.
