After 28 years of ownership it is time to sell my lovely P6 if I can actually go through with it!
It has done 48000 miles from new,but I have only managed 2000 miles in the last 20 years. It was rebuilt about 20 years ago with all new wings,sills etc and professionally resprayed in the correct Cameron green using cellulose paint as I prefer it to 2 pack paint. The base unit which can be a bit of a shock when the wings come off was virtually perfect. New tyres and wheel trims, complete stainless steel exhaust system. Leather buckskin interior was cleaned and renovated, still looks lovely today. Proper Rover rubber mats front and rear have kept the carpet underneath in beautiful condition. Bumpers rechromed, new light units front and back. Loads of other little bits and pieces I can't even think of, and then it's just spent the majority of it's life in my garage, coming out very occasionally for some exercise.
A rust free car, it is now MOT exempt and road tax is free, so running costs are much reduced. It obviously has a few little marks here and there but as you can see by the photos it is a wonderful example and a pleasure to drive. Starts up instantly every time, benefits from power steering.
Given the once over at the P6 Rover owners club (check out the reg no!)national meet last week by a most knowledgeable club member and valuer and met with his approval. I even have the edition of Practical Classics from 1990 in which it was advertised before I bought it.
Obviously loads of history, MOTs and bills.
Only downside is a small leak from the auto box, it has been like that for many years, I just top it up occasionally but should really have done something about it by now, might just be the sump gasket.
Any questions, need more pics, just get in touch, come and have a look!
Price is £9500
This car was a barn find about 12 years ago which was the last time it was driven. The condition is very honest but a total rebuild would make it a concours winner.
