Yep, should be a late Tomcat (with an R3/bubble dashboard) and a K-Series (rather than Honda D-Series) engine.

Yes, that's a Tomcat. Sounds like it has a targa roof too.

 

I think it might be bubble dash at that age, alas both the D and K-Series engines are ~1590cc so can't tell you which it is, but I feel like it's a K if it's that late.

MOT history looks OK, a lot of advises but not big ones and they've cleared up recently. 

 

SOHC (or a lack of Rover branding) is a Honda engine (unlikely), DOHC is definitely a K.

 

Seems like the sills have been welded at the rear ends (TADTS) so check carefully for bodges, especially considering they were advisories one year but fails the next - so they had a long time to rot out and around, hopefully it was all caught.

Check the trailing ends of the rear arches for rot/paint bubbling too. 

 

The rear trailing arm bushes have been replaced at some point which is good news as they do a lot for ride/handling/tracking. Can be a slightly labour intensive job if farmed out.

No they weren’t. Tomcat was just the internal project name for the R8 coupe.

On that reg it'll be a K-series 1.6.

 

They were simply all referred to as Rover Coupes - no reference to the old 216/218 numbering systems.

 

Decent review of the later Coupe models (96-99) here:
