Hello everyone after my brief introduction on the intro thread I think its time I started adding to a project thread, the title refers to what has been said when people have found out what car I have chosen as my classic it is a 1967 Rover 2000 SC heh.JPG  Now I have had the car for about 2 months but only just this weekend have I done anything serious I managed to get the car started after god knows how long it has been sat dormant 1 new battery, stripped carb & seals later she roared into life loud enough for my neighbour to come out and say ah thought it was you! Now I am not going for originality rebuilding this rover but I am looking forward to the challenge. Next on the list is the brakes which just don't work then some welding well probably a lot actually but seeing as I am trying to keep myself busy after having a serious mental wobble a few months ago what can go wrong! On another note just before I started the beast up on Saturday my phone took a dive and I am currently awaiting a replacement so photos of the rusty blue Steptomobile are scarce.

Welcome along. Looks perfect as is rather than over restored. Just how I recall seeing them in the early 1980s.

Yep, my thoughts exactly.

Junkman and Conrad will be along shortly to tell you all about P6 brakes.

Pretty car.

 

Often fancy one of those. David Bache apparently took his inspiration for the roof line at the rear from the Citroen DS - if you compare them you can kind of see where he was aiming at, and your Mk 1 has that purity of the original which makes it nice.
