Low mileage 214SEI

#1 Post by itcaptainslow » Wed May 22, 2019 1:38 pm

I’m extremely lucky I’ve had the opportunity to take on Adrian’s absolute honey of a 214SEI. Saw it at PoL and bugged him into letting it go.

My parents had one when I was eight so to have a timewarp example now is a bit of a dream realised, and one I never thought I’d actually achieve.

Pictures say it all, really.

I’m hoping to get it to concours standard and compete with it :D

:) That is less miles than the one in Worthing that went for 1500 squid last year! that had 23,000 miles driven by it's one previous deceased family member and was in a genuine show room condition!

It's been squirrelled away some where as it never seems to appear on the club scene.

I wish that I'd upped the bidding now in retrospect doh :slap me

Very well done, and knowing how Adrian looks after his cars it won't take much for concours condition.
Glad to note that the non standard boom box has gone

A couple of little touches to the 214-had a replica tax disc made up from the first year of the car’s life, and a holder from the original supplying dealership reprinted. Goes well with the Rover Service sticker!
