Threat to Montego and Rover
By Clifford Webb Motoring Correspondent
Production of the Austin Rover’s new Montego and a new small Rover soon to be launched are threatened by a strike which has halted output of the Metro for four days.

Their main target will be the section producing engines for the Cowley plant near Oxford, where the Montego is assembled.
