The four that I have owned and the others I have seen all had the
aluminum pieces on them. I wonder if they stopped doing that on later
cars. At the end of the final model year (or perhaps cars manufactured
after a certain date, I suppose), Rover couldn't sell them in the USA
because they didn't meet the Federal standards. Any cars that left the
factory after that date could still be sold in Canada, as far as I know.
Maybe they stopped installing the aluminum bits after they used up
available stock near the end of the production run.
