Rover P4 1949-59
Already held in high esteem before the war the new Rover chassis of 1948 and new bodywork of 1950 carried on the tradition, equally satisfying to the sedate connoisseur and to the more exacting performance demands of the fast driver. The 75 had a six-cylinder engine and very comfortable bodywork. 1953 saw this supplemented with the 60 for fuel economy and the 90 for performance. The front end of all models was modified for 1957 and all three received overdrive. As prices rose so did the demand for speed. The result of this was the 105S; an upgraded version of the 90. This is a book of contemporary road tests, specification and technical data, new model introductions, long term tests, driver's impressions, touring. Models covered include: 75, 60, 90, Farina, Overdrive, Turbine, 105S, 105R. 100 pages, 250 illus. SB.
