Details Specification Condition Report

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • Incredibly strong, smooth and comfortable, the P4 is one of the best-made cars ever to be mass-produced in the UK
  • In production from 1949 until 1964, it came in a bewildering number of versions but all were excellent cars, furnished to a very high standard with plenty of wood and leather, and were enormously popular with the middle-class motorist
  • Considered by many to be the ultimate development of the P4, the Rover 100 was produced from 1960 until 1962. A replacement for the Rover 90 and 105, it incorporated a number of changes inspired by the introduction of the new Rover 3-litre (P5), the engine being a seven-bearing, short-stroke version of the 3-litre. Displacing 2,625cc, the straight-six developed 104 bhp and in conjunction with the four-speed plus overdrive manual gearbox gave a 95mph top speed
  • Originally registered on 01/10/1960 this Rover P4 100 started life as a saloon finished in the rare colour of Norse Blue
  • In late 1971/early 1972, the car was converted into a one-off estate by its fourth owner, Malcolm Turney
  • Widely documented in Rover circles and has featured in a number of magazine articles including that of the Rover P4 Drivers Guild

Note: On successful purchase of this lot a new V5C will need to be applied for by submitting a form V62 to the DVLA at a cost of £25.
