We last sold this stunning, low mileage Rover P4 100 back in 2005. MKS 265 has spent the past nine years in regular summer use and has regularly attended shows and rallies across Yorkshire. The Rover has covered 4000 faultless miles in nine years and has returned to us with a recorded mileage of 60,000.
MKS 265 has been slowly improved over nine years and has been treated to various re-chroming work. Mechanically the Rover has been superbly maintained and has proved completely reliable. The car has had various ignition items replaced, a new water pump and a new speedo cable. During the 1990's the Rover was with one owner in West Yorkshire and receipts are with the car for new hoses, thermostat housing, de-coke head gasket set, brake shoes, wheel cylinders, calipers and pistons, brake discs, brake pads and new brake pipes. Between 1961 and 1991 the Rover had just two owners and was in very careful ownership, hence today's wonderful original condition.
Our Rover retains wonderful original upholstery. The leather seats are in lovely condition and have been preserved and regularly fed with leather treatment. The carpets are still the cars original set and whilst very thin in places, show this is a very honest, original car. Woodwork is superb, door cards are excellent and the headlining is very good. The original tool kit and pedal rubbers are still in place, a real time warp. The Rover also presents superbly on the exterior and has recently been treated to a full professional external re-paint. The panels are excellent and straight, the paint finish is of a very high quality and the underside is structurally excellent and protected with black waxoyl. The engine bay is very clean and well presented, as is the boot area with original mat and side panels.
On the road MKS 265 is as you would expect with just 60,000 miles from new. The engine is very quiet and runs perfectly. The car starts instantly, is strong, powerful and smooth. The gear changes are excellent and first gear is very quiet. The brakes are sharp, the car steers and handles incredibly well and performance is impressive with a working overdrive. The Rover is ready to use and enjoy and is one of the most original, best driving P4 examples we have had.
