Default 1999 Connoisseur 2ltr V6 Auto - WITHDRAWN

++No longer for sale++

Sadly I've decided its time to move my Rover 75 on. Its my third 75 and my favourite but I've bought my retirement project early (a Morris Eight) and have decided that between that and the bikes I have enough spannering to do and petrol to buy without running a 20 year old daily driver.

Its a blue 1999 Connoisseur 2ltr V6 Petrol with about 108,000 on the clock - will go up as its in daily use. It has an MoT to 28 August 2020 and is located in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

Good bits: Goes well and everything works. Heated leather seats are lovely. JVC stereo has bluetooth & USB connectivity so does handsfree and lets me carry my entire music collection.
I've had it since Dec 2015 and in that time its had:
2016
Cambelts & Service
4 Tyres (Dunlop)
Fan Brushes
Shannon tube
Oil & Filters
Spare Key
Wipers
Interior Light
Wishbone Bushes
Wishbone (osf)
2017
Washer pump
Oil & Filters
Brakes & Track Rod
Tracking
4 Tyres (Avons)
Headlight Polish
Radiator Hose
Silencer
2018
Oil & Filters
Aircon regas
2018
Oil & Filters
2019
Oil (inc g'box), Filters
Battery
Radiator & Anti-freeze
Drop links
Wishbone nsf
Rear Springs & Shock Absorbers
Idler pulley

Bad bits: She has always lost a bit of coolant. OSF sill starting to bubble. Front tyres will need replacing soon. Gears are clunky when cold. Usual chips but nothing major.

According to the VIN list on the forum its one of the oldest production cars on here. If nobody on here is interested I'll either see if I can trade her in or just run her till the summer then sort her out properly and advertise her for proper money. For now the asking price is £500 (no offers)

I didn't get any replies and she's still available.
2020 has brought:
New brake lines
Sill welded
MOT to 28/08/21
OSF wishbone bush
Wipers
Headlight polish

Still needs hand-brake, front tyres & coolant issues sorting. I've only done 2000 miles since March. She starts first time and drives very well.

No rush :¬)
