AROnline reader and Rover Owners’ Club member, Martin Green, contacted us last week to report that there are still a total of eight MGR-built, 08/08 registered and delivery mileage cars for sale at former MG Rover Dealers SMG Rover in Brislington, Bristol.
A quick check on SMG Rover’s website and a subsequent telephone conversation yesterday have confirmed that the company still has the following cars in stock:

Intriguingly, SMG Rover’s Used Car Stock List also includes the likes of an 01/Y Rover 75 2.0 V6 Connoisseur 4 Door Saloon with 1,071 miles for £10,995, an 02/02 Rover 75 2.0 CDT Turbo Diesel Club 4 Door Saloon with just 560 miles on the clock for £11,495 and a pre-facelift 04/54 Rover 75 Club SE T 4 Door Saloon with delivery miles for £14,995!!
Most of AROnline’s Motor Trade contacts all seem to work by the mantra “Let’s move the metal” so we should imagine that the guys at SMG Rover would be pretty keen to negotiate on those prices… SMG Rover’s Sales Manager, Paul Godfrey, can be contacted on 01173 111100.
Martin Green also informed us that Jon and Tim Wilcox of A.E.Wilcox and Son Limited in Wickwar, Gloucestershire had two 08/08 registered Rover 45s in stock. However, as neither car was listed on the company’s website, we decided to investigate further and spoke to Tim who informed us that one of the two, which had now done around 2,500 miles, would shortly be offered for sale as a used car and that he was hoping to close a deal on the other one, which was believed to be the last 45 to leave the production line, later this week.
[Editor’s Note: Martin Green has, in fact, written an article about A.E.Wilcox and Son Limited’s two 08/08 registered Rover 45s for the Rover Owners’ Club’s website, Rover Torque, and that can be found here.]
