The question is why am I selling this lovely car?

I have only room for 2 cars. My passion is pre war Rovers. I already have a 14HP and someone has offered me a 12HP so sadly the P5B must go.


This car is advertised elsewhere and may be withdrawn from sale before the end of the auction.


I will not take offers once it has been won. If you're not happy with it when you come to collect you can walk away and it will be offered to the second highest bidder.


DO NOT PAY BY PAYPAL UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO PAY THE COMMISION. Cash only or cheque which must clear before any documentation or the vehicle are handed over.

Comments and questions to the seller:

from v.herbaux, dated 17 january 2016
I'm French (and your english is so hard...) and I search a p5b coupé, so some questions:
- how is the rust (floor, passage of wheels, echapment, etc..)?
- how is the interiour (seats, etc..)?
- is the prize fixed?
