Re: Austin Rover - Historical Info
Nice gift! And yes, that's a heck of a treatise.... and yet with all that, NO mention of MOWOG! Harumph. 😉

Subject: [PhillyMGClub] Austin Rover - Historical Info
Hello British Car People !
My son gifted me this reproduction sign for Christmas -
So ... I did some research. Turns out this is a dealer sign. I was not sure of the time period and what cars were sold under this logo.
So ... I posted a new topic on my Mini forum and someone provided this site (Austin Rover - AROnline) which contains a “treasure trove” of info regarding the cars we love.
This particular page contains a history of the logos used by the various companies such as BL, BMC ... too many to list them all here.
Turns out my dealer sign is from the mid-late 70’s when BLMC was renamed British Leyland Limited.
Do not view this site unless to have lots of time to kill. I have been on for an hour and have just touched the surface!
Happy Holidays to all.
