So this is my old 75.
KR54 UKY was the registered plate number.
I had some issues with this car, I got them sorted. And then handed the keys to relative who had a few years trouble free motoring.
I ploughed 2K of my own money and time (was the very last time I worked on a car after suffering back injury and other health issues but the engine was a solid base that a slight HGF that I had a good mechanic sort out.)

it was purchased originally by a Rover dealership head principal as a daily driver for his wife as the history with it showed.
Auctioned off and ended up in wales where I bought it.
after my brother part ex the car I heard it got to Cardiff sometime in 2016, Where it was involved in an accident Cat C write off, repaired and sold on Gumtree.
