I purchased a 1962 Rover 100 nearly four years ago for £375 which had covered 27,500 miles by one owner. I have now covered a further 40,000 miles in this car, during which time the car has been 100% reliable. The only replacement parts being two sets of tyres, a new exhaust system and points for the main petrol pump. Oil consumption amounts to 200 miles per pint and the car regularly achieves 25 m.p.g. The car is very quiet and restful to drive. Indeed, rear-seat passengers have difficulty in hearing the engine fire.
Your readers may be aware that up to 1962 P4 Rovers had alloy bonnet, doors and boot as per the Rolls Corniche (price £13,000). All P4 models possess real hide upholstery and a real wood facia and window surrounds, now a rare commodity.
