1998 Rover 827 Hearse

No Reserve

Left active service in the late 2000s, used as a promotional vehicle for a tattoo parlour; all sorts of potential....

The early history is unknown on this hearse, but the MOT database shows it being tested in Great Horwood in Buckinghamshire in 2006. Only showing 33,000 miles then, we assume that this was the area it was originally used for official duties.

Regularly tested, the mileage has steadily grown to 75,700 miles and after being purchased in 2010 by the current registered keeper, it appears to have been used for publicity for his tattoo parlour. In 2015/16, MOTs became a little bit of a struggle to pass due to various corrosion issues, so an extensive and expensive refurbishment took place, mounting up to just over £8,000! This involved welding on the bottom of both front wings, replacement of exhaust parts, attending to other bodywork repairs and a respray to the sides and rear. A full detailed invoice and photographs document the work done and is included in the file.

More recently the hearse has been through an MOT which had no advisories and does not expire until October 2022. Unfortunately, the tattoo parlour livery has now been removed and it was driven over 100 miles to us for the auction.

Offered here with no reserve, so whichever of the multiple uses you might choose for it, the highest bidder on the day will buy it.
