A collection of Rover P4's on the Herts/Beds borders, all have been sat for over a decade at least. Sad

Sad. But the quality of the bright work on those can hardly be questioned after a decade!

AHH. My FL1 with a door missing! Ok, I know its an FX3, but there is little difference except for the missing door and seating and narrower wheels. Though it probably has a diesel engine rather than the A70 petrol unit.
I've forgotten the name of the chap seeking spares for an FX3, but I think he was in France.

Hi Jim / Rick / Daniel H, thanks just seen this post, it was my friend in France.... I will pass this on perhaps it will be of interest to him?

Thanks Steve.

Wow. The very best examples of these are going for 30k+ at the moment. It's a separate chassis and body so there's a good chance the car is recoverable. Whether it makes sense really depends on the condition of the engine. If that's beyond repair it can be seriously expensive.

Tucked away in some corner of Knaresborough, no idea what they are, but they are in need of some TLC, sorry about the grainy photo, had to use my phone.
