Praised by the contemporary press for its quality, looks and performance - the beautiful Rover 12 P2.
The Rover 12 was a name given to several medium-sized family cars from the British Rover car company between 1905 and 1948. Being a 1947 example this is the last generation, a P2 with many styling changes from the predecessor, stiffened chassis, Girling rod brakes and a synchromesh was added to the top two ratios on the gearbox. 11,786 models were made pre-war and only 4,840 after.
This example has been owned, restored and enjoyed by John for the last 14 years. He's driven it to France, to his children's weddings and loved getting it out on sunny weekends. Now due to downsizing, John has approached us to help him find a new home for this rare classic.
This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jacob after meeting John the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.
