First to be offered by a sheepskin-clad Shed is a bells-and-whistles, last-of-the-line Rover SD1 2600 Vanden Plas automatic.
Despite build quality problems that would shame a cheap Ikea coffee table, there is something very appealing about the SD1. For a start, it is probably the only executive car ever to mix being built in Birmingham with looking like a Ferrari (365 GTB/4 Daytona, to be precise).
It also managed to mix a very forward-looking design (the fastback body and a distinctive 'Bache binnacle' dash were pretty avant-garde for a big saloon in the 1970s) with traditional plush and cosy Rover values.
By the time this car rolled off the Rover production line in 1987, the SD1 had been in production for more than a decade and, although the early quality problems had largely been sorted, the legacy of them had left the SD1's reputation permanently tarnished.
You really want a rumbling V8 in your SD1, but this is Shed of the Week, and sometimes you just have to make compromises. Therefore this car is a 2600, whose Triumph-based 2597cc straight six is down on cylinders compared with the V8, but still manages to muster an acceptable 136bhp and 152lb ft.
This one also has electric windows, central locking, tax until May and an MOT until November, and a lowly 57,000 miles on the clock from just two owners.
Metro Vanden Plas
Nestled in the other corner of the Shed Motors forecourt this week is a real gem. PHer Justayellowbadge has this utterly magnificent 1984 A-reg Metro Vanden Plas Automatic for sale.
With just 12,400 miles from new it has to be one of the lowest-mileage Metros around. According to JAYB, it was modified from new and gets white leather with black piping, an electric aerial, modified dash trimmed in leather, and electric windows (which were never fitted as standard to an A-series powered Metro).
Sadly, 'Vicky' failed her MOT in February over a front suspension bush and knackered tyres. The tax has run out as well, so it's up for £500 to anyone who can give it a good home.
