This remarkably rare 10 H.P Rover was registered on the 30th June 1932. According the brown 'buff' logbook, the Rover has been a blue car from new and we know the car spent at least 24 years in Herefordshire from 1950 to 1974. Records show the Rover moved North to Lancashire in 1974 and by 1990 was in Leeds, West Yorkshire. The car spent 19 years with the one Doctor owner in Leeds before ownership with one of our regular customers in 2009. We have invoices from 1990 when a substantial sum was spent on some re-commissioning work with Naylor Brothers restoration and photographs prior to this of a full body off restoration. The photo's show the bare rolling chassis and several stages of the restoration are present.
The Rover presents very well with lovely, bright older paint. The body is structurally excellent and chrome work is clean and smart all round. The interior has been beautifully trimmed and the dashboard and gauges are exceptionally clean. The engine is clean and looks presentable for local shows. The Rover holds the road well and has keen, sharp brakes. The engine is strong with no smoke and the oil pressure remains very good when warm. The original number WP 2163 has stayed with this honest and very charming Rover.
During the summer of 2010 the Rover has gone through an extensive workshop programme of work costing in the region of £2,000. The work included the fitting of a replacement gearbox with a newly engineered speedo drive, re-conditioned autovac and removal of in-correct electric fuel pump and system. The fuel tank was removed and re-furbished, the radiator re-conditioned and the dynamo rebuilt.
A rare, desirable pre-war Rover that is usable and perfect for touring or showing.
