Not sold on the wheels but otherwise this looks right tidy, especially in nightfire. Priced pretty well too imo all things considered

Why does the J...TOK regarding ring a bell? Feel sure I've seen a few in the run. We're they all registered in the same place or am I imagining things.

Birmingham reg so probably an ex Rover management car. You may have seen press cars with a similar reg.

Strong money for an auto and Honda but condition is yummy, bar the headliner.

There was a identical car for sale local to me last year, so its either the same car or a similar reg.

New wheels and tyres and some colour-coding has doubled the price :laughing2

Hopefully more than that has been done since the last purchase :D

Far nicer on the roversport wheels I think. Looks like he's done a bit of work tidying up the engine bay too

I am having trouble noticing the difference between the paint in the two ads. Would the car have had that colour coding when new?

Given its vintage, I would expect it left the Longbridge line with orange-tint rear light clusters, at least.

Rather behind the times with the last couple of posts from earlier in the year.
I have a very similar car to this, infact almost a twin, even down to a similar reg no. The colour coded bumpers and rear wheel spats are original
