I was talking today to one of the lads that works at the scrapyard about the value (or lack therof) of cars, he mentioned his parent's Rover 75 Conneseur. Basically it's been an "all costs" car - recent invoices for over £1000 for head gaskets and all belts for example. Good tyres, cream leather. Test is sometime in July.

This is the only pic I've got, I haven't seen the car. I can investigate further if needed and would even go as far as buying it just to raffle if there is enough interest before I part with cash and space for the damn thing.

poor old thing...

 

i do love a 75, ok maybe not enough to go and buy another one (no room, no money, all the other excuses...) 

 

but a roffle, now there is an idea.

 

i'd be in for that.

No, it's a V6. I think the gaskets might have been done because a belt let go.

They want £200 - I reckon at £4 a shot that pays them and I make something for buying it and storing it.

 

I shall get more details and a look at the car tomorrow, if there is enough raffle interest by the weekend I'll buy it. Car is in Stanley (Durhamshire).

This is at the other end of the country from me and I don't particularly like 75s.  I have absolutely no need for it at all.

My KV6 had omghgf it's less common than on the 1.8 but not as rare as people say.

 

Often mis-diagnosed, I have seen a few cases where the local friendly garage or Mr AA/RAC see a 75 overheating and decide its HGF before they even climb out their cab. The 1.8 is notorious for HGF but the KV6 fails no more or less than most other cars on the road.

 

A chap on the 75 forum was told his KV6 would cost somewhere in the region of £2k to fix after overheating, lucky he seeked a 2nd opinion because it just had a faulty coolant cap, about £15 to replace. Car is still going well AFAIK.

 

 

Looks like it's been on fire!

 

It does doesn't it, especially for a no expense spared car. It has black headlights?

Looking at the black headlight and yellow foglight combo, I'm hoping for some Lexus lights and a 4" tailpipe, possibly some shiny chequer plate mats.
