More information on this Rover:
The Rover shown here in 1994 was looking very sorry for itself when I took this picture. The car dates to 1964 judging by its registration. It had fallen on hard times when I took the photograph and I think its unlikely that AFY 275B was ever preserved. Did this P4 Rover survive?
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Rover above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular P4 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Rover P4, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the P4, and similar old Rovers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
