Rover 14

On Display

Rover experienced financial difficulties from 1927 as its reputation waned and the Great Depression approached.

In 1933, the 12hp Rover Pilot was upgraded to 14hp. The Speed Pilot of the same year had a longer wheelbase, as did the Rover 14, introduced for 1934.

This example was owned by Mrs Gee Pringle for 45 years. Marrying a naval officer posted to Sri Lanka in 1953, her car was shipped over by aircraft carrier. There it negotiated mountain roads, as younger cars boiled. Two years later, the Rover returned to England on the deck of a cargo vessel, braving heavy seas.
