Description

ROVER 3500 V8 SD1 VANDER PLAS EFI of 1985.

NATIONAL VEHICLE (SPAIN), it was used in Spain, so there is NO OXIDATION/RUST (in Spain we have a very favorable climate to avoid the corosion of the vehicles)

It has Automatic Gearbox.

The Rover 3500 was titled "Car of the Year" for 1977 by the European trade press. Now, in his Vanden Plas model, that admiration wins many integers because the car has been really superb in its presentation. A front spoiler of the right dimensions to be aesthetic and pleasing to the eye, chrome surrounds for the robust bumpers, as well as for the side stripes and for the outline of the light clusters, give this car such a distinction that it far exceeds the former. 1977 "Car of the Year", even though it is the same box. The wheels, with light alloy rims and five studs, give the car a strong sporty personality, with its 20 finely executed spokes, which are crucial to round out the great aesthetic beauty achieved. Once again we take off our hats and congratulate the new model. Honestly, it deserves it. If aesthetics is something we have placed special emphasis on to highlight the good results of a judicious remake, no less can be said about its interior, where you can enjoy good eyesight and touch. of very chosen materials. The leather of the seats is something that stands out for its good quality and how well it is sewn and worked, offering a dark brown color of marked elegance. We also see rich wood in a wide strip that runs along the deck from side to side, leaving a high-quality plastic for the rest that is not wood and where the control instruments are installed, very well arranged in sight and two glove compartments having been studied. , one on each side, for driver and passenger, with good volume.
