>>I have a TC brochure, using much of the same photography, quotes and=20
text as the brochure on the Hemmings site but with these exceptions:
The Magnum 500 wheel photo is identified as a "Magtype road wheel"=20
and the text specification states that "Ro-style" drawn steel with=20
chrome plated spoke sections and rim are optional, unlike the=20
Hemmings brochure, which mentions both the Magnum and the Magstar by=20

According to James Taylor the Magstars were discontinued as an option =
the 2000 for the 1968 model year when the car was "federalised" - the =
remained an option after that. So if he's right - and I would suggest =
more likely to be right than anyone else - your brochure is most likely =
for 1968 or later cars.=20

So if the Magstars were discontinued as a factory option before the P6B
arrived these were never original Rover options for the V8 cars, though =
suppose some dealers may have added them. Certainly my 3500S owner's
handbook doesn't list any wheels in the options section, which suggest
Rostyles weren't an official Rover option for the V8 either.=20
