Rover P6 3500 V8 Auto Power Steering 1974 1974
The Rover P6 was a real game changer when it was launched in 1963, (car of the year) but it wasn't until 1968 that things got really serious when Rover shoehorned in that lovely Buick 3500 V8 engine, bulge in bonnet, vinyl roof and V8 badges gave the game away that this was one serious motor car loved by the UK public and indeed our boys in blue
Examples today vary considerably but few could match the outstanding original and beautifully preserved example that we have for sale here. Supplied new from Mann Egerton of Norwich and used by them as there demo car until it was purchased by the new owners who kept the car until 2006 and only used it between May and October. The next owner continued to care for the car in the same careful manner under the watchful eye of Rover Specialist Ely Services until an unfortunate spinal problem prevented him from driving at which point we purchased the car and sold it to the last owner, who has indeed enjoyed the experience for the last three years with her now showing 64,000 miles
It's important to note that this car has never been restored or welded on the underside. It did receive four new wings in the later years by the first owners and was painted due to ageing at the same time. The vinyl roof is the original and still in factory fresh condition along with all the chrome and auxiliary fittings. All the doors close whisper quite under there own weight a great party trick to impress the onlookers.
Fully rustproofed a. few years ago you really would be hard pushed to find even a stone chip on this car
Originally fitted with cloth seats the last owner went to considerable expense and had all new leather installed along with the correct period chrome P6 rostyle wheels that were available for this model.
The overhaul effect has transformed the interior into the true luxury experience for both the driver and passengers alike with the option of heated front seats that could be connected if required by the new owners
To fully appreciate this car it really does need viewing as its every bit as nice as the photos depict. Nice large history folder with corosponding hand writen letters from the first and second owners. Original plastic wallet with owners handbook and Rover passport to service, photos, invoices etc. A fine driving car Ready For Immediate Use.
