1957 ROVER 90 SEDAN

1961 ROVER 100 SEDAN
Estimate: NZD$6,000 – NZD$8,000

Roy Savage approached his acquisitions methodically with each particular marque represented within this unique collection. No more so than his beloved Rovers. While building his businesses Roy was often picking up clients from the airport in his classic cars. He reached a point where his “sense of pride as a business man” dictated he should buy a brand new car for this purpose and he chose a Rover (which is being retained in his ownership). From then on his love for Rover was sealed and he started to collect them with gusto. Rover and its evolution fascinated Roy since, and therefore the eight Rovers in his collection have each been chosen in a sequence showing the various capacities and styling over the years.

1963 ROVER 110 MARK I SEDAN
Estimate: NZD$7,000 - NZD$10,000

1969 ROVER TC 1978 CC SEDAN
Estimate: NZD$8,000 – NZD$10,000

The 2-litre 1961 Rover 90 was selected for its single ownership in 1985; the 1957 Rover 100 2.6 litre and the 1963 110 2.6 followed in sequence. The 1966 Mark 3 automatic was particularly selected for its single ownership and its highly collectable features and was repainted on purchase. He is the 4th owner of the 1969 TC 2-litre sedan manual. The striking, rare and luxurious 3500 P5B auto is an outstanding example and the beautiful blue, low mileage upgraded spec 1973 3500S is a highly desirable sporting car. And finally, the 1974 3500S in cream with a black vinyl roof finishes off a fine selection and a spectacular representation of the marque.
