1967 Rover 3 litre Mk III Saloon (Manual/Overdrive/PAS)
Virtually 1 owner from new in superb low-mileage condition.
Just occasionally. a really superb example of a marque appears for sale and here is such a car. Sometimes referred to as the poor man's Rolls Royce this P5 Rover Mark 3 version is in stunning condition having been very well cared for all its life.
Supplied new by Highgate Motors Kendal Ltd on 18th April 1967. According to the V5 logbook it was acquired by a Mr Clifford Alan Woof  of Grange over Sands. who kept it until February 2011. A total of  44 years in same ownership! It has had one lady keeper since.
The car is completely unmolested having never been restored. it has been retained in virtually original condition and the mileage of 64. 00 could well be correct judging by the way the car looks and drives.
All the doors close impeccably and all panels are factory perfect. The underside is exceptionally clean.
As can be seen in the above photographs. the leather interior. woodwork. headlining. carpets are all faultless. It is the manual gearbox version with electric overdrive and power steering. Naturally it drives exceptionally well with ultra quiet engine.
Comes with V5 logbook. original owner's toolkit and all the large tools are present in the boot compartment. Original Owner's manual. Old tax discs. Bunch of old MOT's. MOT to April. 2017.
For more info on this great car call or text John on 07909 231414. Can deliver anywhere UK mainland for £1/pr mile (one way only charged) but you have no problem driving this car anywhere. and lot more fun too.
Note: This car recently featured in the Classic CAR Weekly. Independant Road Test Report.
Model History
The P5 appeared in September 1958. badged as the "3-litre". It was powered by a 2. 95 cubic centimetres (182. 8 cu in) engine.  
Stopping power came originally from a Girling brake system. that employed 11-inch (280 mm) drums all round. but this was a heavy car and by the time of the London Motor Show in October 1959. Girling front-wheel power discs brakes had appeared on the front wheels.
The suspension was independent at the front using wishbones and torsion bars. and at the rear had a live axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs.
The Mark II version of the P5 was introduced in 1962. It featured more power. 29 horsepower (96 kW). from the same '3. 0 L' engine and an improved suspension. while dropping the glass wind deflectors from the top of the window openings which also. on the front doors. now featured "quarterlight" windows
The later 3½ Litre saloon variant was a favourite of high-ranking Government Ministers. and served as Prime Ministerial transport for Harold Wilson. Edward Heath. James Callaghan and Margaret Thatcher. As testament to their suitability. the last batch of P5Bs to roll off the Rover line in June 1973 were purchased by the British government and placed in storage. to be released for government use as required: subsequently. registered. relatively new looking P5s were therefore still familiar sights in Westminster for more than a decade after production had ended.
When Margaret Thatcher entered Downing Street in 1979 after her election victory. she was driven in a 1972 model. It was during Thatcher's eleven-year tenure that the P5 was eventually phased out as a Prime-Ministerial car. in favour of the Jaguar XJ.
