 Here is my Rover P5b Saloon for sale. I have been restoring her over the last 18 months. although I have owned (and dry stored) her for 5years. I am having to cut short the detailed finishing as I am moving house and will not have the storage room.
To be clear. this is NOT a concourse standard car. if you would like one of these. you will need to look at cars priced £9000 plus.
The service history indicates it has been well looked after over the years. It needed very little doing to the bodywork and I suspect it might have been rust proofed when new. The only structual repair that needed doing was the front jacking points. a notorious weak area. which has been professionally welded. The inner wings and doors are original. so is the chassis. Repairs have been carried out to the rear 'D' posts. front splash panels and a replacement NSF wing. It was oringinally Zircon Blue. later one of the owners had the roof changed to Silver Birch. It now has Admiralty Blue body. a colour scheme which suits it very well and is not a combination seen on saloons very often.
The interior has been restored so the seats have no split seams or tears. although the interior sponges have start to crumble and the leather needs on-going feeding. There are also signs of wear on door panels.
Mechanically it's very good. starting on the button and good oil pressure and the auto choke working well. I haven't had the opportunity to carry out much work on the engine but it runs well and the other mechanical parts passed the MOT without any advisories.
To summarise. you will get a very solid car with most things sorted and if you want to upgrade you won't be wasting your money. or you could run as is and enjoy running a car with great presence and which attracts very favorable attention.
The price is very realistic and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised if you view. which I urge strongly.


I try to be as honest as possible with my descriptions and have a feedback rating I want to protect
