Good evening

#1 Post by Jamiesage » Sun Nov 28, 2021 5:02 pm

Joined this group as my 90 year old mother in law has a 1993 214 i Sprint that she hasn't driven for 2 years and I would like it to go to a good home. Starts every time and only done 71000 miles and been garaged all its life. Trying to post on the FS forum but cannot see how to attach any pictures so any suggestions gratefully received.

Ford sale : Rover R8 3 door sprint mot’d and on the road
Price :£1500 ovno

Timing belt, water pump , idlers, head gasket (didn’t require doing but was done as precautionary) and fully serviced too.
new rear trailing arm bushes , drop links , 4x new Yokohama tyres too
It is remarkably clean and no rot at all as shown but the paint does have some blemishes to be expected .
One point to be noted the idle does ever slightly fluctuate on sitting but it does settle down and drives perfectly fine - just being honest and transparent!
Pictures make the rest of description really it is what it is , and it is ready to be driven home .
Any genuine questions please ask I won’t tolerate time wasters or postcode hunters .

I’d say if it’s in as good an order as it appears, £1500 is a very fair price!

Good luck with the sale and hopefully it finds a decent home.

Very nice

The price is very fair imo.

These R8s are getting rare. Price needs to reflect that
