More information on this Rover:
In 1993 there was a small former-garage not far from Manchester Airport and still owned by an elderly gent who was very interesting to talk to. Its a while since I've been by and I know the cars shown went some years ago. This one beneath loads of scrap is the rolling chassis of a 1934 Rover 10hp. There was also an Austin 7 in the wilds too. The Lanchester appears elsewhere in this archive.
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 Saloon would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Rover Saloon, 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 Saloon, and similar old Rovers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
