History: Purchased new in March 2003 from Howards Rover of Western-Super-Mare by a retired gentleman from Bristol, he was intending to buy a new Accord (having had Rover 600's previously) but never made it to the Honda dealership ! Bought as a retirement present for himself and his wife, the car only covered around 2500 miles a year for 12 years, until an unfortunate incident in his local garden centre. Whilst manouvering in the car park, he accidentally nudged the car in front (damaging the bonnet edge, wing tip, bumper and headlight brackets) and with just 29,620 miles on the clock, his insurance company immediately wrote it off....
Sadly, at now over 80 years of age, this caused both him and his wife to lose confidence and he decided to finally give up driving.

The car had always been garaged and was a near perfect example of the model - subsequently being very carefully repaired using good used panels in the correct colour (so no paintwork was required), the colour match is perfect as can be seen in the photos - real testament to the quality of the Rover factory painting systems. It still drives like new and retains it's original 'tightness' on the road, the low mileage KV6 being almost silent and the automatic changing beautifully smoothly.

I've owned the car since late 2015, covering another 1000 miles a year and it's been displayed at local car shows at Powderham, Mount Edgecombe, Chudleigh Brook House, Wadebridge Wheels and in 2019 it visited the Isle of Wight for the 75/ZT Forum's Christmas weekend away trip

Having chatted at length with the previous owner, I couldn't 100% confirm that the belts have been replaced, so the asking price reflects both this and the insurance status.

The car has a few minor exterior marks (possibly not visible in the photos, nothing serious though) and the drivers seat has very slight wear to the edge of the bolster & piping, but please remember it is 18 years old.

I am only selling as the car simply isn't getting the use it deserves, and would really like it to go to a forum member that will look after it and keep it polished !

Happy to answer any questions - please send me a PM, provide any other photos and give test drives subject to Covid rules. etc.
Car is located in Plymouth, Devon.

£2495 ono.
