1915 Rover - Austin Clifton Heavy 12/4 1.7 petrol from UK and Ireland


Damn good for pulling the ladies in!


Radiator exploded, damaging electrical circuits, and ignition system failed.

General Comments:

Bouncy suspension although interior was comfortable enough. Wipers too slow to be effective in really heavy rain. Engine power good for age although no weight over rear wheel drive so traction not too good.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

What a load of rubbish from someone with little or no real experience of the car.

Who ever thought the rear wheel traction was poor because of lack of weight over the rear wheels was certainly not driving my Clifton!

I agree with pal joey, what a load of cobblers. Radiators do not explode. Not in the real world.
