Free to collector Rover 820 Saloon (could be returned to road or used as parts)

I have a Rover 820 Saloon that I bought for parts. Its is mostly complete, only some parts removed. It isn't road legal as MOT expired. I think it'll start and move under own steam(haven't tried). I want to move it on. My easiest solution is to send it to the crusher. However I would prefer somebody else who still has an 800 to benefit. Its done about 75k I think.

I don't want to break it myself.

So if somebody can collect it (most likely on a towing dolly or trailer as not legal to drive) they can have it for free.

Anybody that is interested, if they can give me some timescale as to when they can collect that would be useful. I don't want it hanging around forever as its taking up space, but I don't have a date by when it needs to be gone. If there are no takers after a while I will then set a deadline after which it will need to be sent to jaws.

It does have wheels and tyres on it. I will investigate in the next few days whether the tyres will hold pressure and if it'll start.

Hi Kyle - fantastically generous offer. If you've got any photos that'd be great.

I'm only in Stockport and could collect reasonably quickly if I can make things work out

Its in reasonably good nick bodywise. I can get some photos next week.

Its dark blue and has a manual gearbox.

The car is located in Chorley - I have moved and not got round to changing location on my profile.

Ah, thanks Kyle.

I'll respond via PM (and thanks for yours), but just wanted to say that I probably can't get involved in an out of town rescue mission. I'd be grabbing someone on their lunch, but almost certainly can't get them for an afternoon, so if anyone else can make use of the whole car, I'll step aside.

I'm not sure if this will be helpful or not and no idea how far Chorley is from where Adrian is but Kyle - could you help Adrian shift it, perhaps over a weekend or other time when you're both available?
Cheers,
Dave
