In 1980, the Vanden Plas badge reached Rover's SD1 executive model, being applied to 2600 and 3500 models to denote flagships. Among the standard features were electrically‑adjustable, heated door mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning and an electric sunroof, plus Dunlop Denovo tyres on alloy wheels, and a choice of velvet or Connolly leather upholstery.

This white 2600 automatic with brown velvet interior was registered in April 1987. The vendor advises us that it spent around 20 years off the road ‑ albeit indoors and under cover ‑  before being acquired by a garage that intended to bring it back to the road. However, progress was slow, and the job was eventually taken over the the vendor, who did finish things off. Having done quite a lot of engine work, he reports that the car "runs beautifully". The current recorded mileage is 59,871.  

The paperwork file includes the current V5C, Rimmer Bros SD1 parts and accessories catalogue, original owner's handbook, a handful of tax discs from the turn of the century and various 2021 bills during the car's recommissioning. These total around £1500 in parts, with another handwritten note by the vendor chronicling a further £700 of expenditure, including £170 for the wheels to be shotblasted and coated, £140 for a rear suspension conversion (the original self‑levelling system is in the boot, however), £110 for tyres and £200 for a camshaft and carrier.

Overall, this Rover is in tidy order. The vendor carried out a bottom half respray himself, which he admits isn't to professional standards, but looks presentable enough. The only electrical fault he notes is that the driver's door mirror is inoperative.
