I'm trying urgently to save my dad's 45 Club from the scrappie - a 54 plate 1.6 petrol in excellent condition, metallic grey. Well maintained, FSH, all bills and documents. MOT until 7/9/18. Never failed an MOT, only advisories ever have been tyres.
The problem is it needs the head gasket doing, for the second time. Last done at around 60k miles (now at 125k). My folks have decided to move on and are collecting a nearly new Hyundai this Saturday 17 Feb. They are planning to leave the Rover at the dealer as they want a 'clean break'. They'll get nothing for the car, and it will inevitably go straight to the nearest scrap yard.
My dad worked at Longbridge all his life, and lost his pension thanks to John Towers et al. The 45 was his last company car which he bought off the liquidators.
It is too good to be shredded, but unfortunately I can't give it a home. I'm hoping someone on here would take it on, even if just to use the parts. Let me know ASAP if interested. Thanks.
