Unveiled to great enthusiasm at the 1949 Earls Court Motor Show. br/>the P4 was a brainchild of Spencer and Maurice Wilks. Launched
during 1960. the 80 proved to be among the rarest P4 variants.
Derived from the contemporary Land Rover range. its 2286cc
four-cylinder engine developed 77bhp and 124lbft and was allied to
four-speed manual transmission. Notably less `nose heavy' than its
six-cylinder siblings. the model enjoyed sharper handling.
Reputedly capable of 87mph. the provision of overdrive and front
disc brakes as standard gave the saloon relaxed cruising
capabilities and reassuring stopping power.

Offered in two-tone grey and black and with a complimenting blue
trim this Rover 80 is in extremely good condition throughout having
undergone an astonishing £20. 00+ restoration between 1998 and
2002. The bare metal restoration is detailed in the countless
receipts and bills from Foundry Classic of Dorking that accompany
this motorcar. Perhaps the most astonishing part of this lovely
Rover 80. however. is the remarkable 6. 50 miles recorded and
backed up by an MoT test history dating throughout the life of the
car. The current vendors have owned the car since new and exported
it when they moved to America where it sat garaged the entire
duration of their stay. When they returned to the UK. the decision
was taken to restore their beloved Rover to its original glory and
thus the project began culminating in this great example on offer
today. Supplied with a Mot test certificate valid until September
2015. this is arguably one of the best examples of a Rover 80 in
the country.
