WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
P4s are valued according to condition rather than specification, although six-cylinder cars are more soughtafter. Values have climbed in recent years but nice cars start at £4000 with anything less than this likely to be in need of recommissioning. Few buyers want Roverdrive but most want overdrive and such cars fetch a premium. £10,000 secures a really nice P4 – the very best can touch £15k.
