1961 Rover P4 100

Good example driven 50 miles to the sale; manual 'box with O/D and heater

Dating from December 1961 this old Rover P4 100 is finished in two-tone and although not perfect cosmetically, is an entirely usable example driven some 50 miles to the sale and comes with a current MOT valid until April 2022 with just one advisory for a slight weep from the steering box - impressive for a 60 year old car.

Featuring the torquey 2.6 litre straight six IOE engine giving enough performance to hit 100mph, more than ample for its day and features manual transmission with overdrive, Girling servo-assisted front disc brakes with drums on the back to help slow the car down. Inside we find leather interior with wood trim, heater and enough space to take the family away on vacation.

Within the history file we find the current V5 revealing our vendor to have owned the car since September 2019 enjoying it regularly around the Forest of Dean and beyond, old style log book dated April 1999 suggesting the original owner kept the car from 1961 to 1978 and file of invoices showing regular maintenance and parts purchase dating back to the early/mid 80s and selection of 11 old MOTs dating back to 1983. In addition the file also includes a brace of workshop manuals for the P4.

A good, usable example with scope for some minor cosmetic improvement. Use and improve, or simply use and enjoy - a good P4 is a treat to drive with a wealth of knowledge out there, huge parts availability and an active club and enthusiast scene.

Bidders are advised that since arrival on-site, the starter solenoid has started to play up so although we have driven the car, it is not currently quite 'on the button'.
