• Oxford 76P4001 Rover P4 Smoke Grey/Black (OO gauge)

An OO scale model.

The Rover P4 series was a group of mid-size luxury saloon cars which Rover produced between 1949 and 1967, all designed by the company’s designer Gordon Bashford.  The P4 designation was the in-house factory terminology and the consumers usually referred to the cars by their particular designations, in this case the Rover 90.

The Rover 90 was produced between 1953 and 1959, during which time nearly 36,000 were sold worldwide. Classed as a top-end vehicle, it had a powerful 2.6 litre engine with a top speed of 90 mph. Modifications over its predecessors included a bigger boot, wide rear windows and flashing indicators.   This model follows the authentic physical features of the original and has a two-tone black and dark grey body colour with dark red interior seating. Registered 9076 TW, the model features the famous Rover Viking badge on the bonnet above the distinctive Rover radiator and the Rover 90 ‘signature’ across the boot.

The Rover 90 claimed cult status in the 1980s, notably in France, where they were in particular demand by classic car enthusiasts.
