1975 Rover 2200SC P6 Auto

Good usable car with recent cylinder head overhaul with new valves and guides; used regualrly and driven 80 miles to the sale

Dating from August 1975 this smart and eminently usable Series II 2200 Single Carb (SC) Automatic has been loved by our engineer owner for the last 3 years while he completed a long standing restoration on his MGB. Now completed, he drove this lovely old P6 up from Swansea for the sale. 

Finished in  blue with cream leather interior, the car features automatic transmission and original radio while retaining the original wheel trims and brightwork in super order.

Our vendor also saw fit to improve the Rover during his ownership fitting a new brake servo, new rear brake callipers, discs and pads along with removal of the cylinder head to de-coke and fit new valves and head gasket and inlet manifold gasket. Furthermore, a full service has been carried out including new plugs, rear tyres, 4 head lights and new battery although there are only some supporting invoices; our owner bought them through his busines.  In the boot, there is a selection of spare ignition system parts, brake master cylinder, four original wheel trims, complete original tool kit and roll, spare wheel with cover, jack and spider wheel brace.

Within the history file, we find a note from the vendor on works completed (as above), the V5C, seven old MOTs dating back to 2003, old style V5 and a selection of invoices for parts including wing and door trims and other sundry parts. Now MOT exempt, the last ticket was issued without advisory in August 2017 at 2,903 miles with the car showing just 04161 miles suggesting a total of 104,161 miles (99,709 miles recorded at MOT in 2012).

Driven some 80 miles to the sale this attractive, later model 2200SC is ready to be enjoyed this Spring.

**Bidders please note, car has leaked fluid since arriving on site which looks like transmission fluid**
