The vendor has owned this 2230cc Rover P4 75 for 19 years, having it rebuilt and recommissioned after it was imported from Ireland as a barn-find (in dry storage for 20 years) by specialist Allan Nightingale of Debenham, Suffolk. He states that the car has only been used for summer running over the last 19 years, and is running without any known faults, aside from the fuel gauge and glovebox lid being stuck. The engine was rebuilt in 2004 and 2010. The vehicle was manufactured in 1959 but only registered in the UK during April 2011. It has had one owner since then and is now showing 74,555 miles on its odometer. As an historic vehicle, the Rover is now MoT-exempt; its last expired in May 2013 after being tested at 66,169 miles. 

Paperwork includes the V5C, original buff logbook, and some recent invoices, including ones for a battery and a service during 2022.
