Lot 1904

Description:

1959 Rover 105 Saloon
Reg. no. 853 BBJ
Chassis no. t.b.a.
Engine no. t.b.a.
Introduced in 1949, the Rover P4 range quickly acquired a reputation as a solid, dependable and eminently respectable vehicle – they weren\'t nicknamed the ‘Auntie’ Rovers for nothing! Engine sizes and power steadily increased throughout the 15-year production run, the 105 of 1956-59 having a high-compression 2.6 litre straight six, producing 108bhp. Easily able to keep up with modern traffic while cossetting their occupants in no small amount of understated luxury, these cars were built to last and have stood the test of time much better than some of their contemporaries.
This 105 presents very well; the interior is particularly nice with just the right amount of patina, and a period radio. The car has not been used regularly in recent years, but when turned over, it fired and ran well.
