Passing along this craigslist ad for a 2000 for sale in MA, along with a 
note from the person selling.  Not sure if it is his or the shop owner's 
car...  Looks like there are photos on craigslist.

Hi Steve,

Sorry I did not get to Larz Anderson for that event. I am trying to save 
this 1968 TC 2000 Rover from being junked. I will email the post from 
Craig's List. The mechanic that owns it needs the space. He bought it 
and never had time to do anything with it. It does run but does not 
drive. I was looking for 500.00 for it. I tried to sell it twice on Ebay 
and have had no luck. If you know where else to list this for sale or 
know someone that would be interested please let me know. By the way I 
am in Malden.

Thanks Scott 617 894 0800

This is a 1968 Rover with a 4 cylinder motor and a 4 speed manual 
transmission. I am selling this for my Saab mechanic and he has been 
working on Saabs for over 30 years. He has to many projects and needs to 
sell this one. He purchased it in 1998 and it was last inspected in MA 
in 1997. It runs and fairly well and will need an exhaust. It has not 
been driven since 1998. Currently it cannot be driven as it needs brakes 
and the clutch is frozen. It does not have a title so I am selling this 
for parts only. All windows are in tact and do not have any cracks or 
chips. It is definitely worth restoring as the rust is not that bad. The 
floor pans and trunk are solid are solid. There is rust where the spare 
tire sits but it is not rusted through, surface only. I took many photos 
to show the condition of the car. This is a complete car with an extra 
head,extra wheel, spare tire cover, 5 hubcaps without any curb rash and 
other parts in the photos. The hubcaps that are on the car do not have 
any rash or dents either. The tires hold air and need to be replaced. 
The Rover letters on the trunk are there and have been removed and are 
in the trunk along with an extra wheel. The jack is there but the lug 
wrench is missing. All body panels are straight and the only missing 
trim is on the right rear. The seats need to be redone although the rear 
seats are in good condition as well as the head liner. The rust shown on 
the bottom of the car is mostly surface rust. The photos near the bottom 
are the wheel wells. The drivers side is rusty and the other 3 are fine. 
There isn't any manual.500.00 or best offer
