1968 Rover P5B 3. 5 Saloon

 Only 86. 56 miles!

A really lovely example of a P5B. and subject to a professional restoration some time ago with written and photographic evidence of all the work. This included: complete sills ad D post replacement; and 2 years ago. she underwent a full bare-metal re-spray at huge expense; again there are photographs of this work at each stage. She remains in really excellent condition today.

The car comes with a large history folder. all original manuals and wallet etc. Also a work-shop manual.

She is finished in Silver Birch with Mulberry leather interior. a great combination; and also in very good condition. The back seats are the same style as the coupe with a fold-down picnic table for the rear-seat passengers. A couple of seams need re-stitching on the front seats. but that's it! All carpets are in excellent order. as is the wood. headlining and trim.

She is believed to have been an RAF staff car from new. and was then owned by the Hewitt family (Major James) from 1980 to 1996 (purchase receipt available in a massive history file). The car was used for their wedding day!

The Rover drives superbly! She has a lovely quiet engine. and smooth gearbox. which was fully reconditioned in 2010 (2000 miles ago). All the door panels are super straight. which is rare on these cars now; together with very good chrome. Indeed. I completed a 500 mile rally in May over one weekend; and she performed brilliantly with no issues at all!

The underside is quite amazing and fully undersealed. with the rear springs greased and re-wrapped to protect them. New tyres have also been fitted.

I view this Rover P5B as Condition 1. though not concours. These cars have started to escalate in value over the past couple of years; and you will be hard pressed to find a P5B that drives as well as this one.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Serious purchasers are welcome to view the car.

I require a £500 deposit to secure the sale. Thank you.
