A Sad day, "The Imposter" is on the bay...... 827 SLi

Post by scoobyh123 » Sat May 06, 2017 8:52 pm

Rover 827 SLi auto in White Gold 2, leather and Vitesse alloys from new aka "The Imposter".

Recently listed, not the best ever of my listings but it's my friends car (once owned by me) up for grabs. Not quite a Sterling but as close as so has always been known as "The Imposter" :

Btw, it's not a starting bid of 99p, as you say it was up for sale before so you probably missed that.

Thanks Andy, see what you mean about the 99p start, i'll edit that. When was it up for sale before then?

***EDIT*** 99p changed for "low" - thanks Andy. :wink: :D

Showed it to my brother and he thought you had listed it before at a starting bid of 99p, (but now listed it at 275 starting bid) so have now relisted it, that along with misreading "recently listed" to "relisted" made me put 2 and 2 to make 5. My bad. :)

Sad to see he's selling the old girl.

Is this to raise funds for his T series 75 project?

I think so Tom and/or the ZT-180 and a few other things on his list.

No worries Andy - i think it was general confusion all round! I hadn't realised ebay had changed it - it was originally going to be listed at a 99p start then ebay suggested changing it to £273.56 or something odd and very similar so i changed that to £275 then realised it was changing it on the starting bid so thought i had changed it back to 99p but it didn't happen! :roll:

Love the interior of the Rover 827 SLi auto, and no dash lift either. A great car for someone, and it does looks very smart.

It's got the carpet from a 1999 car Nick and he recoloured the door card inserts and rear parcel shelf to match - it's very effective!

Certainly is a great car for someone, very unusual even when new and dare i say it, one of a kind now. :wink: :D

Dave
