WHY I LOVE MY P4

GE­OFF ARTHUR

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Ge­off’s 1963 110 is his fifth P4, which he bought five years ago. He says: ‘ The first car I ever drove, on my 17th birth­day, was a Rover 90 and I’ve owned them ever since. This one was sit­ting in a layby with a ‘for sale’ sign in the win­dow and I took pity on it. It needed work; I had to re­build the en­gine, re­place the clutch and out­rig­gers and do var­i­ous other bits of weld­ing be­fore un­der­seal­ing it all. It’s now ca­pa­ble of ev­ery­day use, but doesn’t get as much use as I’d like be­cause I have eight cars, in­clud­ing three Rover P5s. I love the way these cars are so solidly built; the engi­neer­ing in­tegrity is phe­nom­e­nal. The P4 was clearly a car de­signed and built to last.’
