i agree with you , kent.
my 80 has independent front seats and a sliding roof by Pytchley,
giving it the extra trim quality
it is indeed very practical , and the 2.25 petrol and its parts are
available over the counter even in the USA , not to say worldwide .
no wonder it is the Rover of choice of Philippa Mclachlan for

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 daily driver.
