pc_july_2015_frontThis month’s Practical Classics Magazine has nominated the RSR as the club of the month.

club_month_pc_july2015Elsewhere in the July issue is a report on the restoration show showing the RSR stand where Mark Gray was changing the gearbox on a P6 next to the Practical Classics P6 which was also on our stand.

pc_july_2015_restoshowThe story of this P6 and it’s engine swap at Beaulieu, again helped by Mark is also in the magazine.  In fact the July edition of Practical Classics has a strong Rover feel about it.

    I have toi sell my friends 1938 Rover 14hp on his behalf.
    Extensive renovation photos and accounts available.
    Fully restored in good condition and running well.

    He has gone into a home.
    I must obtain its realistic value. Where do I start?

    Hi Nick,
    I am hoping you could help me locate the current owner of Rover (I think 12) registration No. ETV 99. My husband and I used to deal in classics and at some stage this car passed through our hands. I have recently unearthed five tax discs for this vehicle dating 1956,’57,’58,’58,’59 and 1960 when the car was in the Nottingham area, and would dearly love to return them to stay with the car’s history.

    Regards Carol Bellingham

    I run my ’39 14 in freewheel all the time, with no adverse effects so far. Make sure your brakes are in good order tho’ as there is no engine braking. Once moving clutchless gearchanging is available
