Lot Number: 435
Estimate: £7,000 - 8,000
  • V5 Present
  • Chassis number: 902596
This lovely‑looking 1939 Rover 10 P2 has come from a small private collection, where it had been since 2006. Known as Cedric, in reference to its CED 511 numberplate, little is known about the 1389cc car's earlier life except that it was sold new on Anglesey. Following discovery in a Cumbrian barn in 1967, it was fully restored and repainted brown and cream. In 2003, it was sold and subsequently refurbished again, this time being painted green. During 2008, it was repainted once again in maroon and black, the livery it wears today and which particularly suits it.  

The current mileage is showing as 65,820 on the odometer, with six previous registered keepers recorded.

The history folder is huge, with the current V5C present along with some previous V5Cs. There are many photos of body work being undertaken over  the years (including one set showing attention during 2012), assorted parts catalogues, Pearson workshop manual, and relevant magazines, and tax discs, MoTs invoices dating back over many decades. There are even some toll tickets ‑ it seems that almost everything related to this Rover has been saved and preserved.

An insurance assessment from 2011 cites the then 63,901‑mile Rover as being 'one of the finest examples of this model still used  regularly by a very caring owner'. Improvements listed include a galvanised floor, stainless steel exhaust and thorough underbody seal comprised of old engine oil and waxoyl done personally by the owner. Electric washers were fitted, the braking system overhauled and the original leather seats and West of England cloth headlining described as in remarkable condition for their age.

The Rover also comes with some spare keys.
