While we have attempted to photo document* the conditions under good lighting the overall condition of the unit would be in our assessment a "Barn Find" being "driver or hobbyist"level of condition and in no way should be considered a "Completely Restored", nbsp;" brand new"or "Concours d'Elegance"level car. *View detailed High Resolution IMAGES and NOTES via the Gallery at http://www.gearsmotorsports.com/Gallery%20Viewer/54RoverP4715/gallery.html

Very unique car and exceptional candidate for full restoration or studio, vent/wedding venue photography.

While the exterior finish shows well, here is crazing and obviously some imperfection considering its age. The body is overall very solid with preservation contributable to its storage in California. Image no 8 shows the cars finish potential in flash lighting thus the gloss may improve if professional polished/glazed/buffed. The exterior chrome is in varying levels of condition. While some show signs of age/pitting other areas like the bumpers are exceptional. The Rover Viking ornament is intact and very unique We have been advised the front tag is a genuine original period plate

The updated hood release reveals the 6cyl engine also converted to electric fuel pump which cranks and runs smoothly with no smoke. While certainly to be expected, e have noticed very limited signs of leaks in the form of the occasional drip / spot. There some components in need of new fusing or repair, ut the primary operational electrical systems i.e. Headlamps, arkers, urn signals, orn etc are operational. While most gauges work the dash lighting is dim or non-operative most likely due to the aged dimmer switch and/or bulbs. We do not believe the fuel gauge to be accurate. The center clock glass needs to be removed and cleaned. We have not attempted to operate the heating / ventilation system and the vintage Motorola radio we assume is a tube radio and at the time of this listing our tech has not attempted to power it up.

The genuine wood frames, oor and dash panels are in overall very good condition and have obviously not been stored where subjected to severe sunlight. The interior upholstery, hile overall as shown in the images, t is, gain, hat we consider a "driver"level of condition with areas on the door panels and one rear seat side (image 19) showing areas of cracking, ouchup and /or previous repair. Considering the outstanding condition of the loop pile carpeting, ood trim etc our recon team initially scheduled the car for reupholstering but later decided to leave it for the end user as it is acceptable as a driver and or the choices of color or materials could be determined by the owner should they decide to make improvements. The trunk loop pile carpeting is also in exceptional condition and the car includes the jack, ug wrench, wner/Operation and Shop Manuals (Image 20) as well as an amazing vintage Rover tool kit.

In summary of the condition we have detailed above, s we specialize in late model exotics our knowledge of the P4 is limited. Further, his car in particular having been owned by a retiree, tored for years with very few records and with limited knowledge of its history does not afford us the ability to make any applicable assurances outside of the obvious Make/Model and visual conditions.

It is a very interesting car and draws a great deal attention at our Atlanta store. However, lease review our disclosures re conditions to circumvent unrealistic expectations of a pristine or flawless car. Customer satisfaction is a very high priority and we have attempted to adequately describe this vintage car. This being said, f you are a perfectionist expecting this to arrive as a pristine or restored car please do not bid. Sale includes additional parts etc including an original washer tank/glass, isc parts/tools, nother matching tire/spare and its pan/covering not pictured.

As there are little are no US spec P4 sales to compare for valuation the car is offered here at No Reserve with a low starting bid.
