eBay Watch : Mint 2600 raises the bar
eBay user, The Doctor, is becoming a bit of a celebrity around these parts for his ability to sniff out the nicest BMC>MG cars and sell them perfectly. There can’t be many AROnline readers who’ve not spent time drooling over his adverts – and to tempt us some more, he’s offering this amazing Rover 2600.
The immaculate car, with 41,000 miles on the clock and boasting one owner from new, looks tempting and nice enough to have us thinking that here we have a 2600 good enough to see these smooth cruisers emerge from the shadow of the 3500.
The advert reads: ‘Today the only owner of this exemplary Rover 2600 has himself just turned 70. He has kept it in tip top condition and was very, very sad to part with a car that holds so many memories and that he has loved and cherished since he was in his late thirties. However, the practicalities of keeping the car at his age weighed heavily and consequently the decision just had to be made. We very much would hope that the second owner will continue to care for YOJ 573T in the same way as its first has.’
Will that second owner be you?
