1960 Rover 80

Our 1960 Rover 80 Is For Sale

Our 1960 Rover 80 came into our workshop after we took it on as one of our current projects from a previous customer. As much as we think this car has huge amounts of potential and will very likely go on to be a beautifully restored car, the time has come for it to leave us and move on to a new owner, as our workload is too full to complete it ourselves.

There is some rust on the front nearside wing but, other than that, the car is complete and was running as it should when the workshop team was working on it previously.

All the details you need about the car can be seen on MyClassics.co.uk, where the car is listed for sale.

New arrival: 1960 Rover 80

Mary who we have known a few years loves her Triumph Spitfire and we have looked after it ever since our first encounter.

Unfortunately for husband Bill she is not so keen on the Rover 80 that has been taking up valuable space in the wood store and coming up to another winter of non-restoration it was definitely on borrowed time.

Mary contacted me (Gordon) and said would I consider buying the car as they really wanted to see the car restored. How could I say no?

Tomas and myself had a mammoth task of releasing the Rover from its comfortable home and onto a trailer that we doubted we could remove from the their small cottage garden and driveway.

2 hours of loading and constantly telling Mary that we may fail in our quest and with the reply that the winter logs were being delivered it was never a doubt that Bills Rover was destined for departure.

We managed to get a few pictures between, swearing, turning wheels with flat tyres and desperately not trying to destroy the pergola. You can see the joy on Mary’s face and the not quite so happy Bill.

I even got a message from Mary the following day thanking us for all our efforts and tell us that the logs had arrived.
