1951 Rover P4 75 Cyclops
Rare early Cyclops P4; only five previously recorded keepers; little recent use but runs and drives
First registered in July 1951, this rare old girl shows five previously recorded keepers back to 1983.
Silky smooth and beautifully made, production of the P4 lasted from 1949 to 1964. This is one of the early designs with the controversial but iconic central headlight leading to the ‘Cyclops’ nickname.
Power comes from the 2.1-litre straight-six engine, giving a decent performance in the day. The four-speed manual transmission is operated by the column shift – another feature of the early P4’s.
Mechanically, it will need a check over before taking it for any long drives, but it runs and drives. It has not had an MOT since 2010 and the engine sounds like it is running on five so a good service/recommission will be the order of the day.
The interior and exterior are presentable, with several areas that could be improved. It looks little different to how it appeared when it was taken to the 2007 Tatton Park Classic Car Show - http://retro-motoring.com/events/Tatton-Park-2007/picviewer.php?file=DSCN0312
These are rarely seen on UK roads and P4s have really come on of late. It looks attractively estimated too, so fill your boots!
Documents: V5C, old style Log Book, 5 old MOT's.
