Description: United Kingdom, Haynes. 2000, First Edition. (ISBN: 1859606717). Hard Cover, 272 Pages. This intriguing story is not only rich in historical detail but also in human experience and social history. It portrays, for example, something of the blood, sweat and tears, era by era, that led to success or failure, joy and disappointments. It details the technical development of the Longbridge-designed and produced cars, the changing ownership of the factory in post-war years is also fully covered. The adoption of the Rover name is explained, with the story brought right up-to-date to include the aquisition by German car manufacturers BMW, and the background to its subsequent disposal despite assurances to the contrary as late as January 2000. Label gummed to front endpaper under book jacket flap otherwise a clean copy in very good condition. Slight fade to jacket on spine. Dust jacket is in a clear, removeable, protective sleeve. Very Good/Very Good.
