Further Info:

This rare and immaculate Rover 10/25 features Black Weymann fabric-covered coachwork that's complemented by Red leather seating, eye-catching Red/Grey check side panelling and door cards, and Brown carpets, and the car rides on Red artillery wheels. A `Riviera' model that would have originally been priced at £250, this delightful Rover benefits from a full-length sunroof as well as folding windscreen and sliding windows on all four doors. Recently imported from Dublin, the Rover is said to have been the subject of `an extensive nut and bold restoration' and currently appears to want for nothing. It bristles with such charming period features as a capacious rear trunk, running-board mounted fuel can, mellow klaxon and Viking radiator mascot. The vendor informs us that the 1185cc four-cylinder engine `starts instantly and pulls surprisingly hard', the three-speed manual gearbox is `sweet and easy to use' and the brakes are `excellent'. A delightful addition to any collection.
