Rover P4 The Complete Story

$34.00 $44.95
  • Barcode: 9781861261212
Introduced in 1949, the Rover P4 represented comfortable and refined motoring for Great Britain's professional classes of the 1950s. By the time production ceased in 1964, the P4 had become an anachronism. Still, it had imbued Rover with a reputation for quality engineering and paved the way for the successful P5 and P6 models. Author James Taylor recounts the story of P4 conception, design, production, and automotive breakthroughs, from its rise to the rank of status symbol to its fall from favor. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs and an eight-page color spread.

Author: James Taylor

Author Bio: After graduating from Oxford and pursuing further academic studies at Reading, James Taylor spent 12 years working in central government. However, the lure of writing about cars – which he was doing in his spare time – proved too great and he decided to turn it into a career. James has now written well over 100 books in all, and among them have been several definitive one-make or one-model titles. He has written for enthusiast magazines in several countries, has translated books from foreign languages, and even delivers effective writing training in both the public and private sectors. He spent the best part of ten years as the editor of Land Rover Enthusiast magazine and has always counted the products of the old Rover Company and of Land Rover as his favourite subject. He also co-organised the “15 Years of Rover V8” event at Donington in 1982.
