1990 Rover 820Si Fastback - £1150

We know we're breaking the £1000 rule here (although only slightly) but we couldn't leave out this lovely Rover 800. Being an 820Si it's powered by the 2.0-litre 16-valve M-Series engine and comes with a five-speed manual gearbox. It's a bit too early to be proper Alan Partridge spec but it was originally owned by the dealer principal of a Rover main dealer in Chippenham. And we can only hope he had a pair of stringback leather driving gloves. For extra purchase. It's also for sale by Country Classics in Wiltshire, who are Rover and Triumph specialists.

Had L reg one with a sun roof and loved it . Sadly sold it in 2007 for £350 silly me- should have kept it in a barn! MW
