No make of motor car is the subject of sturdier and more enduring loyalty than the Rover, and the tradition of Rover-owning is often passed down from generation to generation.

The mystique of the name, in association with the renowned Viking emblem, has been created by more than sixty years of motor car manufacturing on a level of the highest quality, with steady engineering development that has also often been marked by the most advanced thinking.

This book looks back to the beginning of the 20th century, and reintroduces the reader to landmarks like the 1919 twin ‘eight’, the ’14/45′, the ‘Meteor’ and the ‘Blue Train’ models, and the later `Speed Twenty’. Recent history is not forgotten, but this is a book intended for the ardent Rover admirer’s moments of nostalgia, as it is based upon original sales brochures, adverts and magazine articles.

It provides both the outline history of a great British company, and a visual feast of memories.

Hardback in very good condition throughout. Dust cover also good, some slight marks to white cover in places inevitably and some minor scuffs to top edge.
