Rover 75 Connoisseur
Rover cars were favoured by professionals such as doctors, lawyers and bank managers. They were used by British Prime Ministers from the 1960s to 1980s. Fans of the series Outlander, will be interested to know that Frank and Claire Randall drive an open topped Rover in Series 1 and 2 and on her return to Scotland in 1968, Claire drives a Rover P5.
Our Rover 75 was built on the second day of production and was crowned the 2017 Scottish Vintage Vehicle Federations Champion of Champions in its class. With an immaculate and stunning blue leather interior and real walnut dashboard, 'Show Car' is fitted with more modern features such as air conditioning, electric seats and rear sun blind, three point seat belts for all passengers and front and side airbags.
Launched in 1999 the Rover 75 was the last British designed and built saloon car of the great British motor industry tracing its heritage back to manufacturers such as Morris, Austin, Triumph and MG.
Described when launched as a baby Bentley more comfortable than a Rolls Royce, the model won numerous awards on its launch for style and comfort. Fitted with a traditional luxurious leather and walnut interior these cars embody the best values for which classic British cars are rightly famous.
Rover is a famous British car maker that was in production between 1904 and 2005. The company also created Land Rover in 1948 and Range Rover in 1970 which remain in production to this day.
'Daisy' is a 1971 Dormobile conversion of the world famous Volkswagen T2 and has recently undergone a total but sympathetic restoration. She is resplendent in her yellow and white paint work and spectacular tan interior complete with cooking hob, sink and bunk beds. Universally recognised as a cultural icon, 'Daisy' is a real head turner and places a smile on everyone’s face with passers by always waving.
Although Scotland's terrain can reduce her speed, Daisy is happiest travelling between 50-60 mph. A van so laid back, she forces you to unwind!
Volkswagen, owner of Bentley, Bugatti, Porsche, Lamborghini, Audi, Seat and Skoda is the worlds largest motor vehicle manufacturer. At the end of World War II, its factory in Wolfsburg was in the British zone of occupation in Germany. A cheap and reliable staff car was required for use by the British Army. Major Ivan Hirst found the tooling for the air-cooled Volkswagen Peoples Car designed by Ferdinand Porsche in the 1930s and the British Army placed an order for 20,000. Initially Volkswagen made two types of vehicle, the Type 1 or Beetle and the Type 2, a van, microbus or camper. The rest as they say is history.
