1965 Stunning time warp Rover SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
Very original and rust free P5. This is a low mileage(65,000), clean, strong and honest car. Not Concours by any means, but has the potential to be.

This Rover spent much of its life in a museum with little use although it was MOT'd every year. It seems to have had a restoration in 2015, where it underwent a change of colour and a new windscreen and door rubbers.

The bodywork is rust free and the paintwork gleams a deep lustre when polished, although there are a few minor blemishes here and there. Chromework is generally good, but again there a few areas that could do with re-chroming. Tyres and hubs are excellent.

The interior of the car is very good with the Leather in fantastic condition, as is the roof lining and carpets. There are new inertia seat belts fitted to the front seats, and the wood is in good, but not spectacular, condition.

The car drives lovely and pulls strongly. She starts literally on the button, and I have never heard the engine turn more than one revolution before she roars into life. Steering and brakes are as you'd expect for a car of this age. The DG gearbox works smoothly in both modes and the rear axle is quiet.

The engine is in great condition and is as smooth an otter smothered in butter. There are a couple of oil leaks which I hope to get addressed before I sell. I have tried to give as honest an appraisal of the car as I can. In conclusion, I can say it is rare to find one of these beautiful cars with so little of the dreaded rust. It is, in my opinion, an 80% car, and with only 125 or so of these cars registered on the road, it is a rock solid investment that can only go one way.
