Designer: David Bache
David Bache had started his career with Austin and may have designed the dashboard of the Austin A30. He was hunted by Rover and joined them in 1954 taking on the Rover P4 which lost its 'duck-tail' and gained a new commodious boot and wraparound rear window. Then Bache restyled the Land-Rover for the Series II which had a wider track which he accomodated by giving it a 'waist' and thus created the definitive Land-Rover body which is still in production in 2011. The P5 was next given to David Bache, but the project changed from being a high volume car to sell beneath the Rover P4 to a low volume car to sell above it. Bache's design's changed as the brief altered, but his final Rover 3-litre was a good combination of Americanesque and British traditional and endured well. Much less traditional was the high volume Rover P6 that came next, using advanced technology and styling inspired by the Citroen DS and other continental designs. The 1970 Range Rover was the work of Gordon Bashford and Spen King, but David Bache tidied a design that was already iconic before even he touched it. The final true Rover was the SD1 and David Bache once again was given free rein to come up with a 'Four Door Ferrari' design. David Bache oversaw an eleventh hour restyle of the Austin Metro before its launch in 1980, and in 1983 the Austin Maestro was designed by Ian Beech under David Bache's direction.
