Our friend, the eBay seller known as ‘The Doctor’, has this unerring habit of finding some of the cleanest, tidiest, lowest-mileage BL and Austin Rover-era cars known to man. And this Rover 2300, one of the last of the line, is a great example of just that sort of car…
The Doctor is an ex-BL man and knows his stuff – so when a car like this comes up for sale with him, everyone takes notice. It’s a one-owner 2300, built in mid-1986, fitted with many extras, and on its original Targa Red paint, and looks to have a reserve somewhere north of £3000. And with four days left to run, bidding is already heading in that direction.
Once again, it’s good to see a nice SD1 in original – and amazing – condition heading for a good price. Maybe, just maybe SD1s are finally heading out of the values gutter.
