1935 Rover 14 Wedding Car

History

First owned by a farmer in New Zealand, found in a field in 1971 by Albie Irvine of Ashburton NZ and fully restored by him.
September 2006:  Purchased by Cumbria Classic Coaches it took 8 weeks for the Rover to be shipped from New Zealand.
We mainly use it for wedding car hire but we have driven it to Shetland for a holiday!
