If memory serves me correctly it was owned by a guy called Rob Harrison and he was looking for a Traco Oldsmobile engine to replace the Rover engine that had subsequently been fitted.
And what about the Rover BRM gas turbine of 64/65? that was entered for Le Mans.
There were also the 60s P6 rally cars KUE1 to 4.
And going back to the 50s the Marauder sports car based on the P4 behind which was a few Rover people.
