Legendary rover 3500s,1972 so nice early more desirable car.not been used since last may when mot ran out as did my insurance so has been laid up since.
very easy little hobby project,i was useing her last year on a regular basis,goes like the clappers handled well excellent brakes,all 5 tyres are matching and as new.but although i have started her regularly the starter motor solenoid is sticking,so cant start.so that will need attention and battery has gone dead.it will probably be best to give brakes once over and an oil change,but mechanically that's all it will need to be back on the road.
the bodywork is basically very solid,paint not very good couple of panels miss matched paint bit dull a good t-cut and wax will improve her no end,the underside is superb,floor is great,had new outer sills,and all the suspension,brakes and axle's etc have been stripped down re built painted by previous owner,new springs fitted,it still looks impressive,exhaust very good,as are mechanically very well looked after,engine went well good oil pressure,and was a quick car.gearbox good,has electric fuel pump and pressure regulator.
interior very original leather box pleat with front headrests,original radio,seats have become unstitched,carpets bit tatty but unmolested.
needs collecting on trailer/recovery and with a week end of fettling she will be flying down the road again.
none sunroof car,no power steering fitted.
i am in hereford,not hartfordshire.
Having received a sympathetic nut and bolt restoration, completed in June 2018, this Rover has just been returned to the road. It is a beautiful example of the marque and retains much of its originality.....
Unique Rover 3500 P6 total rebuilt by RR CLASSIC. Rover 3.9ltr engine with Edelbrock/Weber. Original (new old stock) Abarth exhaust especially made for Rover 3500V8 with stunning sound. LT77 5-speed.....
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.
History unknown but is an Australian.....
