Les found this picture and sent me a copy of it the other day. It shows a new Olympic body shell in the back of a Transit van. I thought it may be of interest to someone, while its not strictly speaking a lost car because we don't know anything about it anyway, it may jog a few memories, if you know anything about the history of this one please let us know.

From the picture it looks like it could be a phase 1 judging by the bonnet aperture size.



please contact Olympic_registrar@rochdale-owners-club.co.uk or rochdale-olympic@fsmail.net

Hi Keith,

This photo looks interesting, what else do we know?

When was the photo taken?

Where was the photo taken?

Who took the photo?

Who sent it to Les?

Kind regards,

Tony.

Unfortunately that one is very much a mystery, the picture was on http://www.vord.net/cars/rochdale/frontend.jpg maybe its something to do with them.

I have done some research and the body in the photo was only just a front end and roof that was found stored in roof space of a garage and was used to rebuild car CNM 982C

The full story is at http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=11&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CEoQFjAKahUKEwjh046ostjIAhUC6RQKHY3VDo4&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vord.net%2Fcars%2Frochdale%2Frochdale-2005.html&usg=AFQjCNHpSjMziYoR5IXDOnUOPhrVFIR8AQ

Well done Steven, that all makes sense now. I can't believe I missed that one.

We have some details on the rebuild on our web site too, doh, senior moment. http://www.rochdale-owners-club.co.uk/Harrison.htm
