As part of getting the Ti back on the road I've also picked up a number of brochures, etc... off eBay

Price list (July 1999)

135969


A Ti cost the princely sum of £22,180, £800 less than a 623GSi, the most expensive in the range

135970


Sales brochure (Feb 1999)

135971


Hmm, T series with a dizzy and a "Turbo" inlet manifold (maybe not a 1999 sales brochure), interesting to see the power/torque curves though

135973


If it is a '99 brocure interestingly my car's colour, Epsom Green (HAF), not listed

135974


Also got an accessories brochure. Of interest you could have a sort of external temp sensor, or at least Zero celsius warning, and also a rechargeable torch for the glove compartment

135976


Thatcham insurance body repair manual; everything you could want to know on the body shell, literally to the mm

135977


And a 623 repair manual supplement, thought this might have some general 600 information, but it's very specific for the 623

Takes me back to the mid 1990's when I had 620's as company cars. I worked for company with links to Rover. We could only keep them until they got to 10,000 miles, then they went back to the dealers. They were great when they were new, so quiet, and you could easily cruise past 100mph on the motorway without knowing or intending it. It was safest to avoid 5th gear :).

Does the Thatcham manual offer any insight as to why they all start to rust at the forward area of the real wheel arch? It's been suggested to me that there is a "double skin" there which forms a water trap.

I'd like to know how much power my 22 year old 620 has lost since it was new.

Sadly the Thatcham manual doesn't show that much detail on the panel construction; it shows wheel arches are part of the rear panel construction, which is welded to the boot floor.
