This historically significant Rover 2000 is the Rover Car Company ‘Ex-Works’ car.
The only survivor of the 1966 Rover Works team entered on the infamous 1966. Monte Carlo Rally. Infamous as the victorious Mini Cooper S 1275 cars were disqualified for having had the headlamps bulbs changed during the event!
This car was prepared to group 1 specification and only competed in one event under the Works team banner - but arguably the most prestigious and demanding of them all, driven by S. Zazada of Poland who finished 22nd overall.
A year later Rover Car Company withdrew from Rallying and this car was used as a prototype by Rover for their 2200 model and latterly the 2200 TC.
The car was then owned for many years by 50’s and 60’s rally legend Anne Hall with Bod Gardiner acquiring the car in 1987 and restoring her to her 1966 Monte Carlo specification.
We are delighted to now offer JXC 8C for sale – A unique opportunity to own this piece of rally history correct in her period specification, this car is eligible and would be welcomed at numerous prestigious historic motoring events.

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.
