The Rover SD1 in other advertising
There is little evidence of the Rover SD1 being used in conjunction with other (non-car) advertising in Australia. This knitting pattern book from Patons is an interesting exception, published by Coats Patons (Australia) Ltd which traded under this banner 1961-1986 with offices in Mt Waverley, Victoria. This is book 663 and the range of vehicles used include Morgan, Mercedes-Benz, Rover SD1 (series 2) and Range Rover. On page 2 the signage for Brents Daimler can be seen in the background. Brents is a motor vehicle dealer which continues to trade in Victoria.
