I purchased this Rover on ebay at the end of January. I was in the process of arranging transport back to New York when we had a household emergency which of course blew the transport budget a few times over. Therefore with the approval of the previous owner I am relisting the Rover using his description and pictures. I have obviously never seen the car in person. so if you should have any questions. I will act as intermediary.

Peruse the description and pictures. and bid freely and often.  

LOW LOW RESERVE

1961 Rover P4 80 Saloon 

1 of about 5900 produced (how this car ended up in AZ not sure)
How many are in the US ? hard to say. but there are a lot of clubs
online in the US. Canada and of course overseas for those who 
love these cars and don't want to see them all crushed or parted out.

VERY COMPLETE AND SOLID AZ CAR 
FOUND MAYBE 2 SMALL THINGS MISSING FROM THE CAR
THIS CAR WAS RESTORED ABOUT 15-20 YRS AGO AND WHEN
THE LAST OWNER DIED THE CAR WAS JUST LEFT PARKED FOR 
ABOUT 12 YRS HERE IN TUCSON AS FAR AS WE CAN TRACK IT.

SO do you RATROD it or Restore it back to stock. tough call 
HOW MANY RHD ROVERS rat rodded or stock have you seen on
a HRPT or Woodward Cruise ??  You can be the first !!

Many owners of these cars had chauffeurs :)

DRIVETRAIN:
factory original OHV 2. 3  Is suppose to run fine. but we didn't get
the keys so didn't try to start it. Looks like someone tried to put a
Petronix in it recently and may not of hooked it up correctly
with the whole + ground thing. So its going to need points put back
in or possibly another Petronix. Some of the wiring to the coil a
little cluttered up but you will be able to see in the pics.

Motors spins over fine and has good compression.

4 speed trans and rest of the drivetrain suppose to be in good nick too.
It has the optional electronic OD switch too on the steering column.

Tires are old and not road worthy .


INTERIOR: 
being that this cars been in AZ most its life the wood is complete
yet dry. The original leather was replaced with velour during the
restoration about 15 years ago. Floors are solid. so one bit of rust
drivers side by the E brake handle. Still has original visors. bench
seat f/r. dual glove boxes. clock and even the tool kit !
Not to mention all the other cool stuff Rover put in these luxury
Saloons back in the day.  



EXTERIOR: original color 1 paint job over the yrs about the same
Color over the Aluminum doors. trunk . hood and rest of the
original English body. In some areas you can see the original paint
and some of the original primer where the sun has baked it.
Super straight metal. although the bumpers
did get some damage. easy to restore. The Grill is very nice and
the missing porcelain emblem is actually in one of the glove boxes.
It is missing one of the front fender mirrors.
All the original glass is in very good shape best I can tell.
Driver outer door handle works sometimes from the outside but
if you reach in it always works from the inside. Rest of the doors
are fine. Cool Fog lights still in good shape on the front bumper.

Suspension:
Overall again nice stock original condition
Some restoration done to it about 15 years ago.
Steers and rolls fine. handbrake works. not sure about the 
pedal brake. I'm sure they will need some looking after before
driving it or during its next restoration.

This car is 90% rust free Arizona car

These cars rarely even come up for sale anymore
