Lot 1977

Description:

1964 Rover P4 Saloon
Reg. no. 4196 KO
Chassis no. 7600R716A
Engine no. 76002846A
By 1964, the Rover P4 range was available in two forms – the base 95, and the slightly more powerful 110. Both offered a bit of good old-fashioned luxury to their occupants, with leather and wood and a traditional, respectable look. Not for nothing were they know as the ‘poor man’s Rolls-Royce’! Although poor is of course a relative term; the P4 was not a cheap car, and nor did it feel like one. Surprisingly good to drive, and capable of a good turn of speed from the straight-six engines, the cars were still selling well despite their near-20-year-old design when replaced by the altogether different P6 in 1964.
This 1964 example is extremely original; having had only three owners from new, it was driven into storage in 2001, then extracted earlier this year and recommissioned. Although currently it has no MOT, the vendor states it will have one by the time of the sale. Externally, the original paint and bodywork are fair, but with room for improvement, as you would expect with a 53-year old car. The interior is lovely and original, while the engine, gearbox and electrics are all said to be good. The car comes with a V5c.
