Re: '99 Rover 825Si V447 XOG

Nice car this 825.

Re: Silver Sterling with Beige Interior T437UNP £1495

These cars are increasingly rising in value. The fact I paid a few quid short of £2k for a mint D reg 820Si on ebay recently evidences that. I consider that I got a bargain. Part of the work I do, and we all do on here is raising the profile of the cars. Frankly with attitudes like "they'll never be...

Re: 1989 827 Sterling F64 TKV £495!!!

That's the hope, Mo, yes. I did put a wanted ad up for a set and have so far managed to track down one wheel.

What's likely to go on it for the moment are a set of MK1C "lattices" which I've got spare. Will do for now and far more apt than those Mk2 Prestiges.

Re: Rover 820Si Auto R159 XOF

Random (and utterly useless) comment - I used to own R667 XOF. I can't even remember what model that thing was.

Re: 1989 827 Sterling F64 TKV £495!!!

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread so far, and those who have made complimentary remarks about me - very good of you. I do think we've discussed this enough now to be honest. What I will say is that when I posted on Saturday about that car and its gearbox I was ever so slightly...

Re: 1989 827 Sterling F64 TKV £495!!!

Indeed. The amount I've spent on these cars over the years is staggering. I'm sure we are all the same. People seem to have short memories that this year I've saved two of these cars from going to certain scrap. 1) The Mk2 825 which was about to be scrapped if no one had stepped forwards to buy (whi...

Re: 1989 827 Sterling F64 TKV £495!!!

Thank you Gordon. I have "made my mind up, man". This car is my property and I'll do with it what I choose, thanks. Frankly I'm getting tired of people on here trying to pass judgement and opinion on my actions and being damn rude with it. I post here for advice, which is gratefully received. I do n...

Re: 1989 827 Sterling F64 TKV £495!!!

Thanks, but I quite like this car and it's not to be sold. I might fix it, I might scrap it. Either way it's got working air con and an excellent interior and everything needed for a six dial dash conversion for a 4 dial car. After the Wolseley wedge, bits for these are plentiful in comparison so I'...

Re: 1989 827 Sterling F64 TKV £495!!!

It's a nice old bus really. Shame about the gearbox tbh. Probably been DEXd in it's life. But it's a £450 car so there we go - the world won't end.

I'd put the old limo one in but that's the later type and won't work. Oh well.

Another beer?

Re: 1989 827 Sterling F64 TKV £495!!!

Well I collected this thing today and it's generally pretty good. Few minor niggles but overall pretty good and largely as described. It was going so well until the gearbox started slipping as badly as the morals of a cheap hooker. Second to third gear is a twirling lucky dip. Other gears seem fine....

Re: 2x RATTY MK1s for sale

Fortunately the 827 is still at my mechanics place and I was going to ask him to remove the exhaust and konis before it gets cubed.

Re: 2x RATTY MK1s for sale

I'll see what condition the lights are in Gordon and let you know. The window motors on the 820 are all shot but I'll have a check on the 827 and see if they work.

None of these bits will be dear. ;)
