This Rover 75 P4 has a sense of style that modern cars have lost.

It is specified with the 2.1 Litre six cylinder engine, manual gearbox with freewheel and leather seats.

It was registered new on 15th October 1955 by the selling dealer, W F Maidens Automobile Engineer of Sleaford in Lincolnshire and given the registration number KCT666 that it still wears with pride. This registration number has a value in itself as it is transferrable but we always hope that the new buyer retains it on the car where it belongs.

Ten days later on 25th October 1955 W F Maidens registered it to a local lady, Mrs Barnes who lived on the same street. Three weeks later on 15th November 1955 she transferred ownership to her husband at the same address.

They owned it for nearly 20 years until 18th March 1975 when ownership transferred through inheritance to their son who lived in the same town. The son kept it for 14 years until October 1989 when it was acquired by an gentleman in Barnsley.

Unfortunately this gentleman died soon after buying the car and it was left to his widow who left it parked in the garage for over 25 years until bought in September 2017 by a local enthusiast who has recomissioned it for the road.

The low family ownership, the paperwork in the history file and the wonderful condition of the interior tells us that the low mileage of 51104 will most likely be correct.

The documentation file contains the original buff log book, a previous old style V5, the current MOT, some previous MOT inspection sheets and the original Rover literature.

Although the car is now MOT exempt as it was manufactured prior to 1960, it has an MOT which runs until October 2018 and the car will be licensed for 12 months at no cost from the date of sale as it qualifies for the Historic Taxation class.

Prospective buyers are welcome to come and view the car in our Leeds showroom.

UK wide professional delivery is available. Please ring for a quote. We are also happy to deliver to any mainland port for export.
