Rover to raise money for guide dogs charity
A 25-year-old Rover 200 being sold by a classic car dealership wouldn’t ordinarily make CCW’s news pages… but this one will be helping raise money for a good cause.
The 1991 Rover 216 GTi TC has been owned from new by Malcolm and Anne Dicks. Finished in Pearlescent Cherry Red with half-leather trim and factory alloys, the 72,600-mile car is still in completely original condition. But now the couple have decided to sell the car, and want it to go to a genuine enthusiast. They also plan to donate the proceeds of the sale to Guide Dogs for the Blind, with which Anne has work connections. They are asking for a minimum of £1500.
The sporty Rover is described as being in exceptional original condition, aside from a small patch on the edge of the roof where polishing has rubbed through the lacquer. Its history file includes every MoT certificate and service invoice.
The sale is being handled by Retro Marques in Strensham, in Worcestershire. Director Mark Knight says: ‘They feel it is a bit special as a one-owner, full history and low mileage car. We’re waiving the commission sale fee on this occasion so that their wish to see the charity benefit is fully realised.’
