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This car is advertised elsewhere and may be withdrawn from sale before the end of the auction.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'm French (and your english is so hard...) and I search a p5b coupÃ©, so some questions:
- how is the rust (floor, passage of wheels, echapment, etc..)?
- how is the interiour (seats, etc..)?
- is the prize fixed?
