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 Rover has power steering. 

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. The body is solid apart from the N/S/R upper quarter panel, which needs some repair work, and the paintwork would benefit from some attention.

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.
