Lot 109 - 1959 Rover P4 90
|Odometer reading||22,310 miles|
|Result||Sold - £6,792|
Manufactured from 1949 through to 1964, the Rover P4 series of cars were produced in several different models; the Rover 60, 75, 80, 90, 95, 100, 105 and 110. Apart from the 60 and 80, the models all had inline six-cylinder engines with overhead inlet valves and side exhaust valves. Various transmissions were used including either a manual overdrive box or, until 1959, the option of the manual gearbox with a free wheel unit. The bodies were mounted on a separate chassis with independent suspension by coil springs at the front and semi-elliptical leaf springs at the rear. By 1950 the brakes were fully hydraulic with discs at the front being standard from 1959.
It is a pleasure to offer this rare low mileage, unrestored Rover P4 90. A former ‘Drivers Guild’ members vehicle, lovingly garage stored and is presented in very good mechanical order. Featured in Classic car weekly April 1999, this 2.6 litre straight-six P4 retains its factory interior, headlining, door cards, carpets and complete toolkit. We are informed the car is structurally solid without rust or any problematic aluminium corrosion. This rare, unrestored, garage kept example is in condition that is certainly commensurate with such low mileage and goes a long way in confirming the odometer reading of just 22,310 miles. Numerous invoices from John Wearing and RPS P4 parts specialist amongst others in its history file including most recently the SU carb overhaul, service, and MoT test certificate.
Guide price £6,000 - £9,000
