Afternoon

Post by Turboben » Sat Sep 30, 2017 3:07 pm

Hi all,

First time on the forum, hope you are all well.

I have just inherited my Dad's 220 turbo coupe. He has had it since new, supposedly one of the ones that never made it to Japan.

Dad was a tier 1 parts supplier to Rover so growing up we had so many rovers including protype metro turbo. A race spec road legal sd1 and just about every variant of original mg, but my dad loved the turbo and always refused to get rid.

So he's 80 now, can only drive until December and has asked I take on the restoration of the car. Thought I better start here!!

Cheers

Ben

I don't know the reg plate, he's had a private plate on it since day 1.

It's still on the road now, needs a respray but has been looked after and the old boy has always spent money on looking after it
