Must be an rare model, 8v engine, seller claims original wheels but surely not?

Rare for sure, probably a dealer dress-up or modified by a previous owner. Definitely didn't come out of Longbridge like that :laughing2

Looks a good tidy example of a 3-door, though :)

Thanks. That's how my phone moves links from the eBay app.

There are some references (mainly foreign sites) to a limited edition. Barring the alloys the decals all look very rover esque in comparison to metro special editions etc

I don't like that spoiler at all, that type was surely much later in design and seems a slight shade of silver/grey different to the side of the car. Has the rear door and spoiler been added and sprayed by a pensioner chav?

Who knows if the spoiler was an add on or not? I could see it being factory / dealer fit, that spoiler was available on the gti models so it right for the 'period'. Trying to sell a base model poverty spec version.

Are you saying Rover used underhand tricks to dress up a standard model to sell more cars? I won't have it, we are British you know :*laughs* :*laughs* :*laughs* :o
