The P4 90 was replaced in 1960 by the more-powerful P4 100. Its similar 2. 6 litres (160 cu in) IOE straight-6 engine was in fact a short-stroke version of the P5 3-Litre unit. The car could now reach 100 mph (161 km/h). The interior was luxurious. with wood and leather accents on traditional English car elements like a curved “Shepherds Crook” handbrake lever. Either a bench or individual front seats could be ordered. A heater was a standard fitting. Like the smaller 80 version. the 100 was fitted with servo-assisted Girling disc brakes at the front. keeping drum brakes at the rear. Overdrive. on top gear only. was a standard fitting.
In essence the Rover 100 was the beginnings of a “useable classic” that didn't just have the elements and sleek lines of the earlier models but was also much more user friendly. Essentially this vehicle would be more than happy to cruise at motorway speeds and to stop in shorter distances than its predecessors.

This particular example is a beautiful. useable classic owned only by enthusiast's. 3 former keepers
81. 00 recorded miles
Fantastic “worn” patina
Last owner had it for 18 yeary
Extensive amounts of maintenance receipts
Several old MOT certificates.

We acquired this vehicle off the last owner who had treasured it for some 18 years using it as a weekend “hobby” vehicle. Over the years he went to great extents to keep the vehicle in ‘tip-top' condition – This is shown when inspection the history file and also when inspecting the vehicle itself.

The interior is 100% original and boasts a lovely “worn” patina that is so hard to find with these vehicle's without them looking tired or requiring replacement. To say that the interior is some 53 years old it is quite remarkable. Some may say this it requires replacement which begs us to say “you cannot buy old paint” in our view anyone can buy a perfectly restored vehicle!

A fantastic solid and mechanically sound example ready for weekend enjoyment.
