1968 Rover 3.5 V8 P5B Coupe Automatic. Stone Grey over Burgundy with Buckskin leather upholstery. Launched at the 1958 Motor Show, the P5 Saloon marked a new departure for Rover as it employed a monocoque construction rather than the separate chassis of the old P4. Dubbed the ‘middle class Rolls-Royce’, the P5B version produced from 1967 until 1973 had a larger Buick-derived 3.5-litre V8 under the bonnet in place of the original 3-litre six and really gave the car the go to match the show. With 160bhp and plenty of effortless grunt under his right foot, the chauffeur could waft his passengers to 110mph and crack 60 in under 11 seconds, even with the mandatory auto box. For the more caddish toffs, Rover also produced the P5B in four-door coupe style with a slightly lower roof-line, slimmer chromed window surrounds, twin-armchair rear seats and additional dash instruments, this being the most collectable variant today. Some 20,600 P5Bs were sold before production came to an end in 1973, with just 9,000 being in the desirable Coupe style. The indicated mileage is 44,000 which is great as it's low enough to be remarkable but not so low that you have to think twice before using the car. Supplied new on January 1st 1968 this P5B was passed from father to son and stayed with the family until 2013 some 45 years, the current V5 showing just two previous owners from new, we also have on file copies of the V5 log books issued for the car. There is a large history file with lots of bills, invoices and old mot certificates which back up the low mileage of just 44,000 which is believed to be correct. The previous keeper purchased the car and then embarked on a full body restoration focusing on good panels gaps and replacing any metalwork before respraying the car. The car was only used occasionally for classic car runs and shows and has covered less than 100 miles since the work was completed. Used by government ministers and royalty on a regular basis, these quintessentially British Rovers are supremely comfortable to drive with a simple and uncluttered instrument layout where virtually everything is at your finger tips. This example is a example and we would doubt a more original car is available in such condition. This represents a unique opportunity for any collector and viewing is strongly recommended.The car positively shouts “Buy Me” with its gleaming paintwork and buckskin upholstery. Inevitably, as the prices of good P5Bs creep ever higher now may be as good a time as any to join the party. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted.
