Not a Rover, but British and really unusual:
Ebay auction # 250270766400
I've never seen a picture or any mention of an estate car version of
this generation of Morris Oxford. Were these factory built, or were
they subcontracted to an outside firm like the Rover and Ford estates?
Is this a scarce car in its homeland? I wouldn't be surprised if it's
unique in the US. The seller's opening bid seems very optimistic given
the condition though.

be of no possible service to him."
