Rover 105S For Sale – Now Sold

There are quite a few very affordable cars in the market at present, here is one such vehicle advertised for $2,950:

Fifty-eight years old and still going strong ! Rover 105S, with NSW Pink Slip roadworthy certificate dated 04-02-2016. 48235 miles, (probably on the second time round).

In the last five years it has acquired an aluminium fuel tank, new battery and exhaust, and a spruce- up inside with new door cards and parcel shelf. Carpet looks original – old but clean. Seats were originally dark red but have faded to light brown. The seats may have been re-sprung in the past – they are comfortable, and the material is free of cracks and holes. The four 185/80 radial tyres have loads of tread. The original tool kit is almost complete

The car was originally grey, but a previous owner has sprayed it white. The quality of the paintwork is not brilliant – and there is a scrape on the driver’s side rear-door. It’s clean and tidy, but it’s not “concours” condition – and that’s reflected in the price.

Why am I selling it ? I bought this 105S last year after having spent six months looking, unsuccessfully, for a decent 75 Cyclops. Then six months later, I found a good 75 at a good price. So the 105S has to go – as a retiree, I can’t afford to keep both.

For Sale – 1951 Rover 75 Now Sold

Cyclops

After several years of ownership of my 1951 Cyclops, I have decided that I am not getting as much fun from driving it as I have done in the past. So I have decided to sell it. It has had a lot of work done on it since I bought it just 10 years ago. The more significant items are: replacement engine (the earlier one was very smoky), new clutch, diff serviced, gearbox serviced, brakes done up. In addition, both bumper bars and all over-riders have been repaired and re-chromed. There are also a number of smaller items which have been restored or repaired. The odometer reads 71187, but this is at least its second time around. I would like somewhere around $6000. It is currently on the HCRS scheme. In addition, I have a small number of used parts which would be included with the car, which lives in Sydney.

I know nothing of its history before I acquired it.

I can be contacted on (02) 98765999, or ianshearman@optusnet.com.au.

Vale – Graeme Tutt

Graeme Tutt

Vale Graeme Tutt

1945-2016

Dear Fellow Guild Members,

It is with deep sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of our President and friend Graeme Tutt.

Graeme passed away suddenly at his home in Blackburn on Wednesday January 27.  His fellow Members who attended the informal dinner and get together at the Tivoli Club on the Wednesday evening were concerned by his absence and thereafter sought to follow up with him discovering this sad news.

Graeme had been a staunch member of the Guild and was always keen to meet Members and follow up on anything Rover. He and Alan Travell would on occasion drive considerable distances to follow up on leads, something I think he quite enjoyed. This enthusiasm and dedication to the Guild ultimately led to him being nominated for the position of Club President, one that thankfully he accepted and managed exceptionally well. Graeme brought a wealth of knowledge and well-honed organisational skills, something that the Club and committee Members all benefited from. The Clubs increasing membership and international website interest is a testament to his leadership skills, enthusiasm, drive and dedication, all of which will be sadly missed.

Graeme’s greatest contribution to the Guild, was one in which he put in many hours every day, in researching, writing and editing The Norseman. It was considered by many to be an exceptional publication. It was seen as and often remarked that this was a feather in his cap. He was very proud of each edition and couldn’t wait to produce the next one. He loved being the Editor. Graeme would love to be remembered for the quality of the publication. In Rover matters, I think Graeme would agree that this was his finest contribution to the marque that he felt such passion for – Rover.

My wife, Deb, and I were fortunate to have a visit from Graeme and Alan last weekend. They popped in on their way back from a Rover trip to one of our Members in New Gisborne. We all caught up at our property in Gisborne and had a very pleasant afternoon over coffee and muffins. Graeme, Alan and myself went for a short drive in Graeme’s 95 to check out how it was going. As with all his vehicles it was all in good order and drove beautifully. It was a pleasure to catch up with a fellow Member that was so passionate about the Rover marque, a very genuine and caring man with a great sense of humour.

One of Graeme’s objectives within the Club, was to get Members with their cars to events and was always very proactive in this regard, He would often remind Members of upcoming events and where possible to come in their Rovers.

Our Leongatha weekend was one of these organised gatherings that was a great outing for all attending. Graeme was extremely pleased, to see such a good turnout of vehicles, together with their owners and made mention of this on many occasions.

With this in mind, and as a show of respect, it would be a nice gesture for those wishing to attend the funeral to try and make it in their Rovers. I personally will be coming in my 90 and think Graeme would have approved.

The funeral will be taking place on Tuesday 9th at 10.00 at Le Pine Funerals 1096 Burwood Highway Ferntree Gully 3156

I would like to pass on my deepest sympathy to Graeme’s Family at this sad time but can assure them that his legacy will live on within the Guild.

 

Your Sincerely

Peter Sullivan

Vice President.

 

Free to a good home – a very rare Cyclops

** Cyclops 8

**Update (14/2/16) – a home has been found in Gladstone QLD and thankfully this Cyclops is going to be restored**

I have a Rover that needs to find a new home. I am not looking for any money for it but thought perhaps someone in your club may be interested. All I ask is they come and take it away. There is also a spare set of windscreens, hubcaps and a container of engine bits and pieces not in the photos. It was running when it was put away 30+ years ago but it was transported from Beaudesert to Hillcrest (Qld) a few years ago and nothing further has been done with it and I thought that it, or parts of it may be of use to one of your members. I have attached some photos.  If you have any questions you can contact me on 0450005653.  Thanking you in anticipation of your assistance.

Regards,

Trudy Howard
