OK, I'll jump in. I think the 80 is the best of all P4's.
It combines the simplicity and servicability of the Land
Rover 2.25 engine with the very solid P4 body and chasis.
The trim levels are almost as good as the 100 and you
have the disc brakes and overdrive for enhanced
performance and economy. I've only had one 80 and I wish
I had it back. All in all, a very practical and classy
