1955 Rover 90 taking shape, with colour now applied to the body, it’s really coming along well now. The guards, door and bonnet to go now, can’t wait to see the finished product!
A recent outing to the famous ‘Rob Roy’ Hill Climb in the picturesque Yarra Valley, many lovely cars were competing and on display:
A recent outing to the famous ‘Rob Roy’ Hill Climb:
Rover 105R automatic 1958. This is a very rare Rover 105R built in 1958 (one of only 3,540 cars produced). It was the first automatic Rover built. The six cylinder 2.6 litre engine is fast enough to keep up with modern traffic. The incredible low mileage (28,434miles). It’s original owner only used the vehicle occasionally from home to the railway station. Mechanically sound, Radial tyres, new battery, Twin SU’s overhauled. Full registration has lapsed. The car has always been garaged and would not take much work for an inspection certificate to be issued. Comes with a full history. $4,000

I have owned and enjoyed this car since early 2008 but alas I have now fallen for another, a newer sportier model, and the Black Beauty needs to go to a new owner as she is not receiving the attention she deserves at her current home. Over the past 7 years I have spent more than $5,000 on improvements including:
- New tyres, electronic fuel pump, exhaust system and shock absorbers
- Upgraded indicator wiring and re-installing original indicator switch
- Replacing tie rod ends
- Overhauling brakes, cooling system, carburettor etc.
- Attending various leaks with new gaskets etc.
The interior was refurbished and vehicle re-sprayed many years ago. The vehicle is otherwise very original. Runs and drives well for such a vehicle. Original January 1949 delivery documentation available. Current Vic. Registration 1EU4IO until December 2015. Plates pictured not included. Price $10,000. Vehicle located Deepdene (Balwyn) Vic.
