ROVER 216 CABRIOLET MANUAL
FEBRUARY 1998 – R REGISTRATION
LOW MILEAGE – ONLY 54,000 MILES
METLLIC PURPLE PAINTWORK
GREY LEATHER SPORTS INTERIOR
Here is a fun little car that came in as a part exchange a couple of months ago and I have been using to and from the yard, it proved very reliable, always starting straight away without fuss. Its been outside the whole time, and although the original roof looks a little faded and worn, its still doing its job, with no dampness inside, even when left standing in the worst of the recent weather. Its the same story all over the car really, its just a nice little car that would make a good classic to use through the summer.
The bodywork on this car is very straight and solid. Obviously it has the odd mark here and there, but it shines up very well and is very presentable.
The interior is also looking very good. The Sports seats finished in Grey leather are free from any real wear, they are actually very supportive. The rest of the interior is the same, all original and un messed with.
This model comes with the 1.6 twin cam engine. Its sounds and runs very well, its surprisingly nippy actually. The 5 speed manual box and clutch work fine, it also appears to be quite good on fuel. The electric roof operates as it should, as do all the electrics, electric windows, remote central locking / alarm, original stereo with its electric aerial etc.
The mileage is showing as 54,000 miles. Now I don’t have the service history to back this up, but looking at the wear on the interior , it cold be correct. We have MOT history going back to 2007 when it had 41,000 miles on it. We have two keys, the remote, and the original owners manual.
If you are looking for a fun convertible to use in the summer, one that should not really loose money now as they are rare enough now to be considered a modern classic, this car could be for you.
Its just gone straight through a new MOT, with no advisories, so its ready to go now !
