One of our members is parting ways with one of his vehicles, a 1961 Rover 100, details are as follows:
One Of Britain’s Fine Cars
1961 Rover P4 100
Mechanically: All works well and very quiet.
Bodywork: No rust or dints and paint very acceptable.
Tyres: As new, have done less than 500 miles.
Interior: Woodwork and chrome very good but front seat needs recovering and front carpet getting thin.
Exterior Chrome: Good and all badges in place.
Extras: Fitted with Electronic Ignition.
A very refined, reliable, comfortable car. It is one of two that I own and one has to go.

Our sincere thanks go out to author / adventurer Dane Hawley for this story:
My wife and I planned a trip in our 1982 Rover SD1, but unfortunately some problems arose, so we decided to use Beatrix, our 1959 Rover 90.
Although Beatrix is well worn and uses a bit of oil, I was sure she was up to the task. Our first day’s journey was from home, through Melbourne and on to Mildura, a distance of about 700 K’s or 430 miles.
Next day we set off for Renmark with the aim of reaching Port Augusta in South Australia, a mere 331 mile run.
Its a pininfarina model, only two built, based on the 90
1959 ROVER P90. Deceased estate, garaged 8 years, had club rego to 2007, engine and gearbox good, new radial tyres, original paint and interior, back seat needs repair and brakes not working. Ready for restoration.
