Artist's Description

The P2 version appeared in 1937 with mainly styling changes but the chassis was stiffened and Girling rod brakes replaced the hydraulic ones that had been fitted to earlier cars. There were no more tourers pre war but around 200 were made in 1947 and 1948. with bodies by Tickford. The 1938 models had fixed bonnet sides and for 1939 synchromesh was added to the top two ratios on the gearbox. Disc wheels became an option to wire wheels in 1939 and standard on post war models.

11,786 were made pre war and 4840 after.
This car, along with its smaller 10 hp and larger 14/16 hp brothers has become known as the Rover P2.

The final cars were made in 1948 and there was no real replacements as subsequent models featured larger engines
