Spotted... 1961 Rover 100 Sedan

  1. Aww! Now, that's more like it. Not my first choice for a real Rover saloon car but it would do.

    I note that it seems to be provided for a way to start the engine with a hand crank in the unlikely even of battery or starter failure. Nice color, too.

  2. We had three Rovers in the Sixties in New Haven; a Rover 90 (looked just like this one), a 3 liter and a 2000 TC. They were serviced at a place out Whalley Avenue.

  3. About 25 years ago, I was going to buy a Defender, only to find that they weren't imported because their bumpers were too strong.
    Seems a vehicle must have a bumper that will not cause damage below 5 mph (or 15, I forget which).
    The Defender, with a utilitarian piece of steel bolted to the body, didn't make the cut.

    It ended well, because I bought a plain-jane Ford F250 instead, and never looked back.
    What a great truck that was. Never a single issue.
