Rover 20 For Sale Sold

Sold

In dark blue with dark blue hide interior, polished woods and dark blue carpet.

This very rare, one of five known to the club, and handsome four-light Rover 20 has been restored by two owners and is now in fantastic order. It has many years and a not insignificant sum spent to get the car to where it is today. In excess of £10,000 was spent on the interior alone.

It carries a rebuilt 2.5 litre, straight six engine fed by a single SU carburettor and with a four speed gearbox with a freewheel facility. The original Luvax chassis lubrication system is fully working, as are the sunroof, the special driver's one shot window device and the opening windscreen. Great care and attention have been given to the chassis and drivetrain and the car is mechanically superb.

The interior has been completely restored using original plans. Five hides of the correct grain and quality were used, the headlining was retrimmed in West of England cloth and the new carpets were edged in blue leather which is particular to the 20 as are the leather trimmed door cards. The interior chrome parts were re-done and the woodwork beautifully polished.

The bodywork has been carefully rebuilt from a bare shell and is re-finished in Admilralty Blue which is the closest colour that could be found to the original. The wheels are stove enamelled blue.

Seat belts are fitted. These are attached to eyes bolted to the chassis so that they can be removed if preferred.

There is a photographic record of these works.

A very rare and handsome motor car.
