Factory Export 2000 TC on Long Island

This 1968 2000 TC is for sale on Long Island Craiglist by its original owner, who mentions he collected the car from the factory and watched it being built. From the tax disc and the Solihull registration by the factory, we can infer that the owner participated in the Personal Export programme set up and marketed by Rover in the mid to late Sixties. Under this programme, owners could collect their car from the factory, tour the UK or Europe, and have the car sent from any Rover dealer to their preferred dealership near or in their hometown at no extra charge.

Judging from the few pictures provided the car looks well taken care of over all these years of ownership and surely must be one of the best unrestored cars available on the market today. We're already curious about the stack of paperwork attached to the car! Finished in Arden Green with a Sandalwood interior, it has one of the best colour combinations available at the time, and whoever manages to do a deal with the owner surely buys something special. Find it here on Craigslist, and to the buyer, do get in touch!

Thanks for your interest in Federal Rovers. For more information, feel free to get in touch and I will get back to you soon! Please contact us with cars you'd like to see featured on the website, or anything you might have that is of interest to the Rover brand and its history.

Previously, we kept a public record of chassis numbers online - we are shying away from that for privacy concerns. We do encourage everyone to register their car, and if the car comes on the market people who are interested can ask us for information. Over years, it keeps cars in sight. 

We are also happy to provide reference material for your restoration, advice or tips.
