1949 Rover P3 60

In 1948 Rover replaced its 14hp and 16hp models with the Rover 60 and 75 P3 series. The new models looked similar to the pre-war cars and came with a choice of either four light "Sports Saloon" or six light "saloon" bodies. Standard equipment included the traditional Rover "Freewheel" gearbox, coil-spring independent front suspension and a hydro-mechanical brake servo.

The four cylinder engine used in the 60 was of the overhead inlet, side exhaust type and had a capacity of 1595cc. The fuel system used an electric pump for its feed from the petrol tank, quite a novel device in 1948!. Production of the P3 finished in 1949 when it was replaced by the new P4 series.
