1959 ROVER P5 3 LITRE AUTO ~ RARE MK1 SURVIVOR ~ SMOKE GREY For Sale

A rare opportunity to purchase the oldest surviving Rover P5 3 litre with automatic column change Borg Warner transmission. Fully documented by the Rover P5 Club & the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, making this a very rare and unique classic car. 'Reginald' was born in 1959 as a 3000cc Saloon dressed in his original & distinctive Smoke Grey coat and recently re-upholstered burgundy cowhide leather interior. The previous custodian spent ££££'s in 2018 on re-commissioning work which included a full engine, cooling system, transmission and brake overhaul including the following: New brake pipes, tyres & tubes, wheel cylinders and hoses, brake shoes and pads, water pump, fan-belt, coil, fuel pipe, reconditioned radiator, spring hanger mounts, heater valve, anti-roll bar bushes, voltage regulator, all hoses, carburetor rebuild, master cylinder, all gaskets, SS centre exhaust box, plugs, dizzy cap, condenser & rotor arm, tappet and timing adjustment plus all fluids and oils. The work was expertly carried out by Dave Baskerville Autos in North Devon with an invoice value of over £4,500!!! Reginald starts first time on the button and is very reliable and a very smooth ride indeed, going through all the gears smoothly and with new braking system stops excellently. The engine ticks over like a finely tuned sewing machine and the straight six engine just purrs!!! You just 'sink' into the sumptuous leather seats, they are so comfortable. Total production of the 3 litre MK1 automatic was 768 cars Date of first registration: 21/01/1959 Registration Number: 262 JPB Chassis Number: 630900020 Engine Number: 630900020 Reginald will come with a huge list of over £2K worth of new spares bought from Rover specialist JR Wadham’s to propel him to the final stage (if you so desired) and make a complete restoration, including the following: New rear SS silencer, screen seals & fixing clips, NOS locking petrol cap, interior kick panels, complete sills for both sides and jack points/rubbers, door sealing kits, scuttle panel, radiator cap, rear lamp cluster sealing kits, door handle gaskets. We offer a Nationwide transported delivery service at cheap rates ~ please call for a price. This is a great opportunity to purchase an early Rover 3 Litre that can be used & improved over time. The rear screen rubbers will require replacement and possibly the front screen at some point (the rubbers & clips are included). The sills and scuttle panel could be replaced over time (all included). Once completely done Reginald will be worth in excess of £10k and a 'sure fire' investment!!! If you factor in what has been spent on Reginald including the vast amount of packaged spares, at this price, you are effectively receiving a free car!!!! Please call Marc now on for more details. All part exchanges considered young or not so young!!
