1999 Rover 820 British Racing Green Fastback for sale

Post by Alucard7002 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:29 pm

ON EBAY (starting Thursday to end Saturday)

£995 starting bid - no reserve
£1495 By it now


Hello all,

As you've probably noticed (or not) I've been rather quiet on here lately.

The time has come for me to sell my 820.

Yes the one with LPG, gold 16" Roversports and more modifications than original parts!

Life for me has moved on since I first started tinkering with 800's and now I find myself in a position where I don't have the time, space nor inclination to fiddle with the 800 as a daily driver - nor do I want to tweak it any more.

I have replaced the 800 with a Lexus LS430 with all the toys as my daily driver. Since owning the Lexus it's clear to me that what I really want is a luxobarge daily and a second, proper, toy car to play with.

See the most recent photos below. I'll be making a list of all the work, mods and upgrades I've done since 2011 and 60,000 miles ago. Needless to say my COS 51C private plate will not be included in the sale, the car will most likely be back on it's original V380 GDV plates.

Asking price is £1999.99 or very near offer as the 820 would come with ALL of my 800 spares which I've accumulated which will FILL the fastback completely. A list of which will be attached soon.

Album of ALL photos I have of the car and work done - there are over 600 photos and a few videos too.

See photo album

I've put a million photographs of ALL the spares that quite frankly I cannot be arsed to list here or eBay.

There is enough to keep an 800 running for 100k or more. (7 front ABS sensors and 3 fuel filler necks for instance)

I need the space literally and figuratively.

Sad day Dusan but I am sure you will be owning another 800 when that itch starts talking to you again.
Good luck with your sale and hope you get a good price for her.

I can see him becoming a semi permanent feature in Lakenheath helping out with other peoples! :lol:

A sad day mind. I always enjoyed reading Dusan's in-depth engineering solutions.

Best of luck with the new endeavours.

What Steve said ^^^^^ and hopefully a "bidding war" for you so the price goes up to a more sensible level. We all know how much you've looked after this car, someone will get a bargain one way or another! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Great news on the sale Dusan - sad though as it's the end of an era for you in some ways. Hope you don't become a stranger on the forum, you still have a lot of knowledge that will be helpful for many! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
