My 1955 Rover 90 has been a project that’s nearing 3 years now in duration. Things are really coming along well with some terrific metal fabrication and welding work that’s been done by a true craftsman. The ‘A Post’ kit, running boards and ‘B Post’ replacements were all sourced from JR Wadham’s (Wadham’s Link). The running boards were taken back to the spot welds and the ‘A Post’ was rebuilt.
Results from the recent ‘World Record’ vehicle auction! It will be great to see some of these finished off and back on the road again!

To be held in Canberra is by far the largest auction of Rover P4/P5/P6 vehicles and parts ever.
Our Guild has members that have made interstate trips to witness (and hopefully participate) in this once in a lifetime event.
The vehicles and parts were owned by the late Dr John Flynn who has amassed this collection over a number of years.

**Vehicle has been Sold**
Rover 110, 1963, finished in juniper green with green leather upholstery. A wonderful vehicle that is in very good condition, bodywork is straight and interior is good. The seats are original, and in good condition although the leather has some wear and tear consistent with its age.
The car is lovely to drive and is very smooth, the 110 is the most powerful of the P4 series and easily keeps up with modern traffic. Fitted with overdrive and toolkit. This vehicle has recently participated in club runs around Victoria and has driven faultlessly. Original owner was ’Lady Herring’ one of Melbourne’s first female surgeons and wife of Sir Edmund Herring, the Chief Justice of Victoria.
New tyres, new battery, new spark plugs, new distributor cap, rotor button and points. Always garaged, recently serviced and ready to enjoy. Any test is welcome.
The car is being offered for sale as the owner has a number of P4 Rovers and is being sold due to a change in circumstances relating to storage facilities.
Price is $10,000. Please contact Alan Travell on 0418 617753 or firstname.lastname@example.org
