These fabulous Rovers are finally now recognised as a superbly built and specified luxury saloon from the Rover Motor company. Favoured by Governments departments and notably the preferred transport of Margaret Thatcher for many years whilst at Number 10.

Our car was supplied new by Clark and Lambert to its first fortunate owner on 2nd May 1968 and is a stunning example and presents extremely well both inside and out with beautiful wood, leather and paint and drives superbly without the usual vague steering associated with these cars. Previously supplied by Hurst Park who are renowned for handling the very best of the best vehicle.
