This car has been sympathetically restored over a 5 year period by the previous owner using new. second hand and old parts.

There is a small cut in the drivers seat back. this is not really noticeable though.

New original carpets (not copies)

The head lining is in good condition. no sagging but has a small split (repaired) about an inch long which is hardly noticeable.

All the dials are working although the accuracy of the rev counter is debatable!! Even the clock merrily ticks away.

Matching rear new seat belts fitted. Front seat belts new old stock inertia type.

 

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This car is advertised elsewhere and may be withdrawn from sale before the end of the auction.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

 

Winner to make contact within 48 hours via ask a question.

 

Thanks
