Rover Specifications
Founded in 1877 in a partnership between John Kemp Starley and William Sutton, the Coventry based bicycle company would be at the forefront of modern bicycle design. Car manufacture would commence in 1904 with a range of single and twin cylinder sleeve-valve engines, one of their cars even taking out the 1907 Tourist Trophy race. The company would supply motorcycles to both the British and the Russian Armies during World War 1, along with Maudslay trucks and Sunbeam cars to government orders.

Models released after the war were much better sellers than the pre-war sleeve-valve models, and from the 1920’s the company expanded manufacturing a wide range of cars, although it was not until the 1930’s until the company managed to turn a healthy profit, under the management of Spencer Wilks. The Rover’s became renowned for their quality, and by the World War 2 the company had garnered an enviable reputation among the upper middle class. The 1948 P3 was the first all new iteration to follow the war, it sharing its new inlet-over-exhaust engine with the other newcomer, the Land Rover.

The P4 would follow in 1949, featuring a beautiful new saloon body and paving the way for a long line of high class and beautifully made iterations, including the P5 of 1959. Such were the profits being made from the venerable Land Rover that the company was able to experiment with such things as gas turbine power, one even competing at Le-Mans. The 1963 P6 2000 set the benchmark for executive style transportation, featuring all-round disc brakes and independent suspension. Rover would become part of the troubled British Leyland conglomerate in the 1970’s, the halcyon days now reserved for the history books.
