Hi,
Lots of discussion around Gilberns on here - which I do like - but just wondering if there are any other Rochdale owners on here?

One of the few Kit Cars I have not owned. Good Post!

An outstanding car with a remarkable longevity.

Simply the best of its time.

When I get through the seven Kit Cars I am building/rebuilding/refurbing I will look at buying a Rochdale.

My only reservation was, from memory, (I was driving when they were made), there was never a Roadster model. And I have always loved Roadsters.

Probably why I never owned one.

But a brilliant car widely respected then and now.

To my knowledge never seen one.

Is it a roofless Olympic or a separate development? Are there any about?

It's a different car, look like (a little) an Olympic but it's an another shape based on the GT.

The Olympic Phase 2 is one of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen.

Hmmm, would you be willing to provide any details as to where the car that you know is abandoned?

Well, I've abandoned all hope of owning one. They are now going for silly money. Good on anyone who has one. They are pretty though so no surprise.

Ex-owner of a British Racing Green GT. 10HPL, where are you now? It was my first car and I thought it was coolest thing in creation. Well, after a Lambretta it probably was! Side valve Ford, 3 speed gearbox and rod operated brakes. Shocked myself when I realised I bought it 40 years ago!
