||The Rover P4
These pages of my website are dedicated to the Rover P4 Car, which was produced from 1949 to 1964.
I hope you find them interesting and perhaps even useful!
Most of the small images with the text can be clicked on to give a larger version.
They were written many years ago (when the internet was a relatively new thing) as an on-line resource for P4 owners to share information about and appreciation for their cars. Now that most Rover clubs have an internet presence and discussion forums exist, it remains a repository of general P4 related information gathered over my 21 years and about 80000 miles of P4 ownership.
I am glad to see that my P4 lives on and is looking really slpendid, having been re-painted. I miss the car but it's comforting to know thet I almost certainly saved it from being scrapped and these pages it inspired me to write have helped save other P4s.
PICTURES OF P4s
Here be P4s in abundance.
PICTURES OF MY CAR DURING RESTORATION IN THE 1990s
Just a few photos taken while I was restoring the bodywork of AOR404B. Non-technical!
TECHNICAL AND RESTORATION
Loads of stuff here... Top tips to keep your P4 in fine fettle,
with more pictures than you can shake a stick at... Plus advice about finding spares.
My aim was to make this the best site for P4 technical information on the web... and it still may be!
A LIST OF ARTICLES AND BOOKS ABOUT THE P4
Although for copyright reasons I can not reproduce them here, I have included a list of magazine articles
books and other information so that you can try and track down the information you need.
Buying, restoring, owning, road tests, history and more.
DURABLE CAR OWNERSHIP
This will convince you that I'm barking mad. Reject consumerism. Make your car last a lifetime.
Most older cars are simple enough to be repaired almost indefinitely. It may even be cost-effective too!
