The ‘Wild’ Rover rediscovered

The ‘Wild’ Rover rediscovered image

John Webb’s 1962 Rover P4 100 will be dragged out of the run down garage where it was discovered and brought into the bright lights of the NEC and the Carole Nash Barn Find display.

With one owner before John, the car had been adapted to help it’s disabled driver with hand controls for the brakes and accelerator.

The car was last used on the road in February 1986, at which time it was stored in a barn until John purchased it in 2017.

Currently in its ‘as found’ condition, John had put on temporary tyres and has manged to get it fired up back to life.

The clock shows 90,109 miles and in addition to its full tool kit and period radio, it still has the log book instruction manual, service passport, free service certificates which are all stamped, and its free breakdown service guide. That may come in handy!

See John’s Rover along with around 20 other discoveries from around the UK in Hall 4 at the Carole Nash Barn Find display, where you can vote for your favourite!
