ROVER PILOT

Coachbuilt saloon, Weymann saloon, sportsman's coupé.

Refined gutlessness on a 5.44 rear axle, or how to squeeze a pint pot into a half. The new 'six' was mounted in a scarcely altered Ten chassis for '32, when you could only get a 12hp (1410cc) version. Four bearing engine was pleasant but gutless, there was a four speed 'box and hydraulic brakes, and the model was distinguished that year by a Y motif on the stoneguard. '33s have a new frame, bigger engine, constant mesh 'box, free wheels, new rad shells, flexible engine mountings and Lucas Startix system - stall the engine and the starter automatically engaged.
