Some similar characteristics mentioned between OVP and our tourer. The hole for the light bar on ours wasnít as neat as OVPís and ours was just drilled through the roof. Also, we have a single fine cut mark on a door from the decal fitting which luckily doesnít look as though itís broken through the paint.

'Marmite' Possibly one of the most famous 75 tourers produced! left the production line as the last of only Three Rover 75 tourers produced in Trophy Yellow. 48 hours later Longbridge closed. The last sold ordered 75 Tourer. Paid for by the Phoenix Four and handed over by John Towers to the Warwickshire Northampton Air ambulance service as a Rapid Response vehicle

Basic? A Rover? You need to look at more Volkswagens and BMWs Russel.

Compared to other models in the range, it is very basic.

For me, that's a big part of it's charm. There are many examples of the higher spec models in amazing condition, but most of the basic ones have either been upgraded at some point, or are unloved (not all, I hasten to add!).

Having said that, if it were mine, I doubt I could resist adding lots of walnut and all the upgrades - ruining the cars history in the process .
