Footnotes

  • Rover’s 14/6 model was launched in 1934 on a lengthened under-slung chassis but retained its predecessor's 1,577cc, six-cylinder, overhead-valve engine. The new frame enabled the adoption of low-line bodies, among them attractive ‘streamline’ versions of both saloon and coupé. Chassis specification included a four-speed freewheel gearbox, hydraulic brakes, Luvax-Bijur automatic lubrication, and electric windscreen wipers. For 1939 the 14hp was revamped with a new 1,901cc ‘six’ developed from the four-cylinder unit of the contemporary Ten.
    This 1.9-litre 14hp wears Tickford coachwork by Salmons & Sons of Newport Pagnell. The car was sold new to a lady owner in London, subsequently spending many years in Bristol before being purchased in the 1970s by Mr Philip Kassel, an American collector, who sold it to the BMIHT in 1995. We are advised that the car is in need of a complete overhaul. Offered with history file and Swansea V5 registration document.
