Rover 216 vdp sd3

#1 Post by Cthomas » Mon Aug 17, 2020 3:26 pm

Hi
I’m Chris had a rover 216 vdp 86 which was my dads last car but got rewritten off in 1998.
Been looking for another one over the years but this is the closest I’ve found so put a deposit on it last week and collecting it at the end of the month hopefully get it mot’d at the start of September to go to mini, metro and bmc show on the 6th of September

:welcome

Nice to have another SD3 on here :thumbup

There are some NOS Vitesse alloys for sale here - viewtopic.php?f=35&t=13685 which would suit your car rather well. You'd just need to find the matching centres...
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams
