A favourite among the professional classes, the Rover P4 series was also used extensively by government departments. This 4 cylinder Rover is fitted with the extremely robust engine which for many years powered the series 2 and early 3 Land Rovers. It is not significantly less powerful than its 6 cylinder brothers and marginally lighter at the front, which allegedly improves handling. This car has been in current ownership since 2013. It is a sound reliable car which, with its overdrive, can keep up with modern cars on ordinary roads and comfortably cruise at 60mph and more on motorways. With disc brakes on the front it has stopping power too. This car is sound but the paintwork is scruffy. There is a slight leak on the windscreen. The front seat has been replaced recently but the rear one is old and damaged. It has seat belts fitted front and back in order to take children. It has a tow bar and electrics. The car will be driven 100 miles to the sale.
