Very much a favourite for cabinet ministers and worthies of the time, the P5B Rover offered very comfortable, spacious and well-appointed accommodation for driver and passengers alike, who appreciated the model’s solid and well-built dependability. Abundant power came from its 3.5 litre V8 engine, which drove through an automatic gearbox.

This example is very original and is finished in Bordeaux Red with a cream leather trim, beige carpets and a good original headlining. The instrument binnacle has a full set of working dials and the wood surrounds are all good.

The vendor has enjoyed the motor car for the last six years and has fitted a new steering box. Although mostly original and unrestored, the general condition is described as good throughout.

Accompanying the motor car is a V5C registration certificate showing only three former keepers, together with some photographs, a quantity of invoices for work carried out, the original handbook and service book.
