Lot details

Registration No: 868 IW
Chassis No: 76000137A
MOT: Exempt

  • Owned by the brother of Rolls-Royce historian the late Bernard L. King since July 2017
  • Believed to have had only five registered keepers from new
  • Green logbook and 2 previous owners on the current V5C
  • Only c.62,000 miles since new, believed correct
  • History file with reams of invoices

Introduced in 1962, the more popular of the two P4 models (95 and 110), the Rover 95, was based around a sturdy box-section chassis equipped with independent coil and wishbone front suspension, a Panhard rod located 'live' rear axle and hydraulic disc / drum brakes. Boasting a seven-bearing crankshaft, its smooth 2625cc straight-six engine was rated at 102bhp and 140lbft of torque. Allied to a four-speed manual gearbox and powering the rear wheels via a 3.9:1 final drive ratio, it reputedly endowed the dignified-looking saloon with a 93mph top speed. Exchanging its aluminium bonnet, boot and door skins for less dent-prone steel ones during 1964, the Rover 95 was phased out of production in May of that year, although, not before some 3,680 had been sold.

This lovely Rover P4 95 was originally delivered to Rover dealer Charles Hurst Ltd of Belfast, Northern Ireland in October 1962 and registered to its first owner on the 8th of February 1963. Finished in Steel Blue with a sumptuous Red leather interior, ‘868 IW’ is believed to have only had four registered owners in Northern Ireland, all living within 50 miles of the supplying dealer. Acquired by the current vendor in July 2017, this P4 still sports its original supplying dealer dash plaque as well as the rear window sticker and presents very well with nice chrome, good paintwork and a lovely, mellowed leather interior which is believed to be completely genuine.

The car starts well and run very smoothly with the vendor stating that it drives very well indeed. Offered with a big history file containing a recent V5C, an old style Green logbook, sheafs of invoices for work done, old MOT’s and two sets of keys, ‘868 IW’ is ready to give a new owner lots of motoring pleasure.
