Technical data for Twelve P2 Tourer

Post by ThomasMoRo » Mon May 06, 2024 11:13 am

Hello,

I am Thomas and will soon be registering a Rover Twelve P2 Tourer (JPO 848) in Germany.

I need some technical data about the vehicle.

As it is so rare, there is very little to be found on the Internet.

Perhaps someone can help and provide me with some data.

The German authorities are very precise and unfortunately the information in the V5C document is not enough for them.

Greetings
Thomas

See my reply. Please let me know if I can help…I have a friend in Osnabrück with a TR4A who’s been rebuilding an XK120 coupe and has become very familiar with the local TUV…….

Hello David,
Thank you very much for your offer.
I am also in contact with a company from Aachen who are familiar with importing from the UK.
If they don't make any progress, I would be happy to make use of your help.

Hello David,

ooh, I have just discovered that you are also a new owner of a tourer, the one from Brightwells auction AJV14.
Maybe we can exchange more information then.

Do you have any information about the total weight of the vehicle and its dimensions, such as length, height and width?
That would be important to me for transport from England to Germany.

Greetings

Hello Thomas

Here is a photo of a page from a well-known book on classic Rovers. I hope it'll be legible!

As far as I know, there is little difference mechanically between the Tourer and the 1947 Saloon and Sports Saloon, so you may be able extract some useful information.

Best of luck anyway, DavidM

Many thanks, David.

You may already know it, but I wrote a detailed journal of my tourer restoration, with comprehensive technical data and references:

Many thanks for these special links.

I have already looked up one or two details there, e.g. the headlights and indicators.
