The Rochdale Owners Club was formed in June 1981 by a group of owners keen to establish a club exclusively for the Rochdale marque.

2020 saw the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Rochdale Olympic, to celebrate this auspicious occasion we were planning to gather as many examples of the cars made in Rochdale by Rochdale Motor Panels at Falange Park in Rochdale.
However we don't need to tell anyone that this simply didn't happen.

Rochdale Owners Club spares operation
The Rochdale Owners club spaers operation has had to be suspended pending us finding a suitable volunteer to take on the roll.
In the meantime the spares have all been transferred to a secure storage facility where they will be held until we can resume normal business. The spares themselves take up an area of approximately 2m x 2m x 2m so are not too intrusive for most club members to hold. The largest item is a complete front moulding for a phase 1 Olympic, we are trying to think of the best way to deal with this large item, in the interim if anyone is requiring front body panels for a phase 1, or if anyone is interested in purchasing the complete moulding please contact me on email@example.com or Howard on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss your requirements.
Rochdale Olympic Workshop manual
The Rochdale Owners Club have from the outset made every effort to help owners restore there cars and keep them running.
The latest initiative to this end is the production of an online/open source workshop manual. The humble beginnings of the manual have now been added to the web site, you can find it on the left hand side of the screen at the very bottom of the nav bar.
Rochdale Olympic Parts List
We are currently working on a list of parts fitted to Rochdale Olympics. This will include the parts origin and alternatives if there was more that one source, i.e. the car they were originally fitted to, and part numbers where appropriate. Hopefully it will also include part numbers and possible suppliers for generic parts fitted to the cars.
If this proves to be successful the intention is to roll it out for other Rochdale models
Lots of Olympic and GT parts are available through the owners club, see 'spares'
