This matching numbers Rover 12 was purchased by the vendor in 2008 as a restored car. Forming part of his collection it has been lovingly looked after and we are informed some £15,000 has been spent on maintenance and upgrades over the past four years. Much admired within Club circles, the all-important freewheel system functions properly as does the "leak-free" sunroof, lubrication system and opening front screen. A heater has also been fitted to improve passenger comfort. Finished in Black with Blue leather upholstery, the vendor describes the bodywork, paintwork, engine, gearbox and interior as all being in "very good" order as one would expect from such a cherished vehicle. Complete with distinctive registration number FUF 100, this charming Rover is offered with numerous invoices for works carried out and MOT until September 2018. A just reward for the efforts expended was an invitation for the car to be displayed at Goodwood House in 2009. Quite simply delightful.
