1994 Rover 214SLi. MOT Jan 19. 81k. £395. Norfolk

Recommended Posts

Time to move another one on and get the Maestro van back on the road….


1994 Rover  214SLi.  Racing Green over grey.  MOT 31/1/19.  81382 miles (approx. 340 miles since MOT).


Bodywork has never been welded and is very solid (MOT tester was impressed) but does have a few minor cosmetic issues which (hopefully) are shown in the photos.  Slight bubbling on offside front wing and bottom of driver’s door, slight paint mismatch and surface rust on offside sill (below driver’s door and at rear).  One 10p size bit of filler in nearside rear arch. Some stonechips and minor scratches to bonnet.  It still looks very presentable though as the photos hopefully suggest.


Engine, gearbox, clutch etc are all excellent.  Absolutely no sign of head gasket failure and none of the common k-series tappet noise when cold.  Tyres are almost new and matching, albeit budget make (Mohawk).  Battery almost new and has had a recent oil and filter change.  The only impending issue is that the trailing arm bushes will need doing sooner rather than later.


Electric front windows work fine.  Electric sunroof untested (I didn’t want it stuck open!).  Central locking works with the key; unfortunately the remote fobs had been lost by the previous owner.  Rear wiper doesn’t work (washer does) and clock only works when it feels like it.  Decent quality Sony CD/radio fitted.


Interior is generally clean and tidy, although there are pock marks to the driver’s seat (pictured; presumably a previous owner was a smoker).


Shiter’s price £395; will be advertised for more in the usual places after the weekend.


Located 5 miles South-East of Wisbech on Norfolk/Cambridgeshire border.

Wait till it goes on Bumtree and you get "my m8 woose a mechanic says the head gaskit has phailed, wont my muney back 2nite"


You may well be right, but touch wood to date I've not had any problems selling on Gumtree.  Sure, plenty of £100 tonight offers which get ignored, but in the main those who have made the effort to get off their sofa and come and view have turned up with cash and driven off into the sunset never to be heard from again.  Maybe I'm just lucky, although I think a combination of the age ot cars I usually sell any my location help; I suspect it's worse in more highly populated areas.

This is begging to be roffled. If it does, 4 tickets please!

The response so far has hardly been overwhelming and I'd prefer a straight sale, but if others are interested in a roffle then please speak up and I'll consider it.

      The scrappers offered me £150 for this, but so far I haven't had the heart to see it crushed. It's a great little car, fairly low mileage and drives brilliant. I got it from a family member, ran it for a year and had great fun with it.
      It's a runner. MOT expired. Last time it had an advisory for a rusty sill. Doesn't look that bad to me but I haven't poked it too hard. Starter motor doesn't always engage but the last time it was tried it started first turn of the key. Starter motor aside, everything works apart from one wheel has a slow puncture.
      In my ownership it had new front tyres, and new speakers in the doors. I even fitted some Eibach sport springs and a new set of KYB shock absorbers. It handles brilliant and at the time I was toying with the idea of entering some Autosolo events in it. That never happened, but it's still a fun cheap little thing to thrash around.

      My attempt at living a shite free life has failed. Trawling e bay/ gumtree again etc but I thought I'd put out a wanted ad here. I've been browsing the for sale threads, but is there anything your thinking of moving on and would like to keep in the fold and have a hassle free sale? I'd consider anything but something fundamentally ok with a bit of MOT would be great. There is a bit of a strange condition- unusually I'm free this Wednesday and rarely at all other times- so being able to collect during the day this Wednesday would be perfect.

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
