Description

1961 Rover P4 100 

2625cc With Overdrive Recorded mileage 61,674 with supporting history. The P4 Series of Rover cars were a mid sized luxury saloon designed by Gordon Bashford for Rover. The first P4s were launched in 1949 and in different  capacity's it stayed in production until 1964 with the last development being the P4 110. Nicknamed the "Aunty" as it was such a part of British motoring culture . The interior was sumptuous with leather seating , Wilton thick pile carpet , Wood veneers and high quality chrome fittings . It was roomy too and gave the driver and its passengers plenty of room as they proceeded smoothly and quietly along. The 6 cylinder motor with Overhead valve and side inlet was beautiful and when maintained well gave little or next to no trouble. 100 MPH was on tap but I don't think Rover buyers were normally into speed. 0 to 60 was a respectable 22.4 seconds not bad for a big saloon and it returned 23.5 miles to the gallon . Body's up to 1962 were a combination of steel and aluminum but to cut costs after 62 all cars were steel through out. A total of 16,521 Rover P4100 were produced before being succeeded by the 110 . This P4 100 is presented in excellent condition its  coachwork finished in mid blue set off by the re chromed body fittings. The body line is straight and appears corrosion free . The underside of the P4 is excellent also , well anti corrosion treated and it appears free of  any significant corrosion. Period chrome wheel rings and a period spot lamp complete the Rovers impressive external look . Moving to the interior the P4 retains its original blue leather seating which has a charming patination. The carpeting is also original and on the whole is very good , some wear to the drivers foot well carpet is apparent . New door seals have been fitted to each door aperture . So the interior has the comfort expected from and old "aunty" . Turn the key and the six cylinder engine fires straight away. A gentle warm up and off we went . Lovely smooth take of and the P4 sits happily at 50 MPH coming in and out of overdrive without delay. No overheating or major oil burning was noted. For a big car the rover stopped immediately and in a straight line. I enjoyed the drive as I am sure its new owner will. Supplied with extensive history going back nearly 30 years .
