1972 Rover P5B Coupé - recently restored For Sale
In very good condition with solid bodywork in the original colour scheme of Burnt Grey over Pendelican White with black interior. She is ready to be used and enjoyed. Restoration recently completed with extensive photographic history. Work has included, renewal of boot floor and inner rear wings; shaping and alignment of all panels; fuel system rebuild (fuel pressure regulator fitted); glass-out respray; bumpers re-chromed; new body rubbers on all doors and windows; interior restoration (including seat foams, covers, carpets, soundproofing, bonnet blanket, door cards / map pockets) and new front and rear screen rubbers (a really horrible job for those that have tried). Some upgrades for touring have also been completed including: 4-speed ZF box and new torque convertor (with transmission oil cooler); uprated radiator, twin electric cooling fans (with manual override) and stainless exhaust. For storage and security the car has a battery cut-off so the metal battery cover can be left in place. All the upgrades are reversible, but they have been completed sympathetically so the interior appearance is completely standard. She also comes with headrests front and rear and everything works as it should. The car is presented at MoT each year (even though she is exempt) and in my ownership has always flown through with no advisories keeping the history complete. Given the cooling upgrades she copes very easily with modern traffic and 4th gear makes for very relaxed high-speed touring with better than standard mpg! She is rolling road tuned each year and has completed several UK tours, a wedding and two trips to Classic Le Mans without issue. She starts easily on a manual choke, but just for added piece of mind when touring the starter motor was rebuilt during the restoration. House move and loss of storage force sale. Priced realistically to reflect current condition and all the work done to date, but there are some minor cosmetic niggles so I will listen to sensible offers. If you’ve read this far – thank you. Overall in lovely, solid condition and if you want a Coupé to take to the next level she is well worth a look around this price. Happy to answer any questions. Release of vehicle on receipt of cleared funds only.
