As a few of you may know, I took on this once in a lifetime project from my father (Edward Nixon). In July 2015 I flew to Hahndorf, SA and drove back to Muswellbrook, NSW with what we now know as the last remaining 1933 Rover Speed 20 – Hastings Coupe in tow. From then until now I have slowly chipped away at the restoration of this vehicle, making sure that each part and section was meticulously restored. A list of some of the restoration to date in no particular order is below: • Chassis sandblasted and professionally painted • Spoke wheels stripped and painted • Steering box reconditioned • Front Rover badge re glassed and fired in the UK • SU carbies reconditioned and tuned • Engine running and in good order: • Dash dials beautifully restored • Brand new fuel tank modelled from the original • All chrome parts ‘show chromed’ • Paint stripped from the aluminium body • Lucas P100 headlights re mirrored and chromed • Radiator cleaned with thermostat fins now working • Shock absorbers professionally restored and manufactured • Window lifters restored and springs realigned • Brake booster restored in the late 80’s • Original union joint found in WA, returned and re milled – a story in itself! • Klaxon horn restored • All interior wood re stained and ready to go • Original leather interior can be used to model final trim • Various missing parts re-milled ready for final fit • An assumed 95% of parts are with the vehicle • A report I have written on the history of this car can be viewed on Dropbox here: or Google Drive here: I have most receipts and proof of purchases for the above. The restoration has now come to a halt due to financial, time and space restraints. Edward is now in a nursing home as his dementia has taken over his life. The Speed 20 is in a storage locker in Muswellbrook as we do not have any garage space at our new home in Newcastle. What I am worried about is that all the good work that has been done so far goes to waste. If this vehicle sits around for a few years, some of these restored items may need to be redone. Thus we need to keep the momentum of this restoration going. I am looking for somebody keen to purchase this amazing vehicle and finish the project. I don’t want to see this project stall as it is such an important and exciting historic vehicle. I am more than happy for interested parties to view the vehicle. Photos showing the current state of the car as well as some of the restoration to date are seen in my report. Please contact me (Chris Nixon) on 0438 388 717 or for further information.
