Was this the first Olfio?
Paul Howcroft’s own OLF10-Ferrari 308 GT 4-2+2. Year: 1983, business must have been good that year. Thank you Ed and Ade Rudler for the photo. However, was this the first Olfio and which came first number plate or Olfio the garment.
We have referred to the naming of Olfio in a few posts on Rohantime. Olfio was indeed named after a car registration plate that was used on a number of Rohan vehicles. Now is a good time for me to own up to the fact that Rohan Sohao was also a number plate.
It is good to know that some Rohan traditions go on. One my first visit back to Rohan Milton Keynes head office for many years the first thing I saw that stopped me in my tracks was Olfio, a beautiful black Land Rover. That raised a smile.
A number of 4 wheeled Olfio’s have passed between the Ferrari and the current Land Rover. The picture below shows one, the Range Rover with Susan and Allan both in Rohan Olfio and Rohan Bags 1985.
Are there any photos and stories of the other cars that have carried the Rohan Olfio number plate over the last 25 years?
Check out to Rohantime Flickr some great photo’s of Olfio taken from the Rohan Catalogues 1985 – 1990.
