I'll get one thing out of the way and say the Rover 213 wasn't a great car when it came to performance. It struggled, it really did. The car was pretty heavy, I felt that the 1.3 really didn't do it any favours.
But I didn't buy it for track days...
The interior was pretty awesome. 100% cloth trim (not leather), with HUGE, soft sofa-like seats, and MASSIVE headrests. There was carpetting everywhere. One thing I'll remember about the old Rover's is that they kept the driver in comfort.
My model was pretty basic in gadgets, just a heater, but it was a second hand, cheap runaround. It had silly mpg, £5 for 100 miles or thereabouts, and they were built to last. You just had to open the bonnet (which I did when I got it, there were cobwebs in there!!) to feel the build quality. You could drive it through a wall and come out the other side with a few scratches on the paint!!
I have owned an exact one of these before, and the Honda engine outlived the body.
Unfortunately, it was the other way around this time. A simple water-pump failure was repaired and the cambelt was put on incorrectly and bent the valves on start-up. : (
