Just bought one of these and it seems pretty quick, even for an auto.

It's an 8V Carburettor model from 1986. Anyone any idea what power it is, I can only seem to find the power for the squirted ones?

My old Rover Cab (yes I know I know) had 110BHP and I would guess it's somewhere around that figure as it cruises easily to 100, and I've had 110 on the flat.

The non-Catalyst 1781 cc Carburettor engine puts out 90 bhp at 5200 rpm. Specified top speed with the Auto box is 171 km/h

171kph = 108mph, looks like you both agree.

Full kickdown shifts up at 5500 rpm. Mine's had a carb upgrade, so maybe it's a little quicker. Not that I ever trust speedos.

Thanks guys.
