    Hello, all! I have recently purchased a fairly early 2000TC (41801120A) and wanted to check in. This is my second Rover after my previous '67 P5 3-Litre Mk III. The car came to me in excellent condition from the son of the original owner, but it is still going to need some minor sorting here and there, so I'll be checking in fairly frequently once the salt clears the roads here and I can get some seat time.

    More details later, but here are some photos, most from the seller, as lighting in storage right now is anything but conducive to good photos.

  2. Wow, that looks wonderful, are they recent pictures?

    Is it white or primrose?

    Thanks, Guys. It is April Yellow (primrose). The photos are from last fall, I think.

    Richard: do you have a photo of what it's supposed to look like?

    What a lovely looking car. I like the bullet mirror mounted on the bonnet. I'm going to suppose you have a good clear line of sight to that mirror through the windscreen? The radio is nice too.

    I do have a clear view of the mirror, but it isn't the world's most effective mirror: too small for that.

    I did find this thread on the shift knob. It looks like my car has an AMCO knob, this is what it "should" have, I think:

    I noticed that my car's car number is lower than the early car described in this old, recently resurrected thread. I also looked up the shift knob, and what I have looks to be an AMCO knob. One of the threads on this forum mentioned something about the wood/acrylic knobs being introduced later; perhaps that's why this car does not have one?

    Fantastic radio you have and I kind of like your gear knob too! I love the early 2000 Rovers, and the colour of yours is beutiful.
    Regards, Barten

    X2 Barten. Great looking car. When new, back in the day, primrose yellow was my favorite color. I also like that Amco knob for it's retro look. Most of those have disappeared over time, so it's kinda period 'cool'. I found an old Haan car cover in my ex-wife's garage that was for her MGB back in the '60's, unfortunately it is pretty much crumbling when it's on the car. Many of the period appearance accessories have disappeared, whereas performance accessories are much easier to find. Happy motoring with your new car.

    Thanks, guys. The AMCO knob has a great look, but the shape is a bit awkward in the hand. I still like it quite a bit, though!
