Rover to raise money for guide dogs char­ity

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

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.’
