We had a ROVER 2000 for a long time in the 70s 80s and 90s and I can remember struggling to wind back back the pistons with a couple of pieces of welding rod ,the car on ramps and the back axle lowered . Purchased in 1978 from a add in the local newspaper in the £30 and under section and sold for scrap ☹️in the early 2000s for £30, Another one that got away along with several other !! Collectible cars !! including a MK 1 Cortina reg BRA 38C . Did anyone make a bob or three out of that one ? Stewart
