                                                                     ROVER SD1 V8 CONVERTIBLE

This SD1 is like no other as it s very rare indeed a prime example and opportunity for some one to grasp,

It s a series one and started life on 01 11 1980 as a 2300 in zircon blue which makes it 32 yrs.

I got it three years ago when i was told it was converted in 1985 by a professional coach builder i beleave to be Banham conversions of kent who were best known for the Aston & Jaguar conversions  and it shows, It s been shortened by 15 inchs so there are no rear seats or floor pans any more certainly a credit to paul banham who did it a mega job ! !.

It states on the V5C that the body type is convertible and the model is 2300 but also states engine is 3500 V8 but it has its original axle so this is a 3500 V8 manual with a 2300 final drive with a large weight loss giving a catapult effect on throttle responce but it handles and drives superbly and is like a go cart round corners.

The first year i owned it i put it on the road and used it and took it to shows where it received alot of attention see pics tatton park 09 and chum castle 09 in cheshire where i was approached by classic car weekly who did the print see pics

certainly an icon in its own right.

My plan was to do a full restoration but i have to many of those and so one has to go but the car is solid the engine bay is abit tatty so is the boot lid see pics the interior is from a series two and everything works  and the hoods seen better days its been dry stored for last two years and started every two weeks there s a second hand bonnet on it now but its gold in color the twin tail pipe exhaust  will be changed for a standard one this car could be on the road for little money or a slight restoration  even better. It is sorn so will need a transporter etc viewing can be arranged ,This is a fantastic one off chance for someone to achive would suit General enthusiast or SD1 Fanatic, any questions plz ask, no time wasters plz , uk interest only, any less than 10 feed back contact me, cash on collection,pickup only,thanks for your time good luck !!!
