1947 Rover 14 Saloon
With our vendor since 2016 and the previous owner since 1997; re-cored radiator and new battery in the last few years
Since it was first registered in 1947, this post-war Rover has had nine recorded keepers, all of whom are mentioned within the file. This includes a rather a nice note from a late owner recounting how he managed to get in touch with Mr Hicks, its second owner who remembered buying the car from its first owner who had kept it for 28 years!
A few logbooks and MOTs later, the car has been in fairly regular use over the decades and would have been maintained over the years but most recently has had a new exhaust (1998) new fan belt, plugs, leads and points, the radiator re-cored (2017), new battery (2019) and has had the carb stripped and cleaned. The vendor rather run out of time before the auction so although the carb has been worked on, it has not been set up quite right, so the car is running rather rich at the moment.
Its not a concours contender, however it has worn its 75 years well and after a little tinkering, could certainly be used and enjoyed. Offered here with no reserve, the highest bidder will take her home on the day.
