The Rover P4 series is a group of mid-size luxury saloon cars produced by the Rover Company from 1949 until 1964. They were designed by Gordon Bashford. Finished to a very high standard, the cars had a feel of discreet luxury yet were not considered pretentious making them a very popular car.
These cars are very much part of British culture and became known as the ‘Auntie’ Rovers. They were driven by royalty including Grace Kelly and many other notable people. The Rover 95 was basically a Rover 100 but re-geared for economy and offered at the price level of the four-cylinder Rover 80 it replaced.
This beautiful example was registered new in Takapuna, New Zealand on the 19th of June 1964 and still proudly wears its original black number plates BH7868. The car lived a somewhat pampered life in Auckland before our client purchased the car in 2018. The car has been a Christchurch car since and has continued to be well cared for and maintained, preserving the stunning car that you see before you today. The vehicle is accompanied by a file of invoices, original ownership papers and a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate. This is one of the best examples we have seen and driven and must be viewed to be truly appreciated. BAINS CLASSIC MOTOR HOUSE is a low volume boutique classic car broker.
