Rover P6 2000TC 2.0l Twin Carb Manual 1972 Saloon For Sale
Another gorgeous Rover P6 for sale at RPi Engineering. This time, it’s a 1972 2000TC (twin carb) model. A very rare thing in the UK and a perfect way of entering the world and community of classic cars. And this is a car that’s sure to get people talking and asking questions (as we found when we popped into the petrol station on our test drive, and came back to find three people admiring it).
On this P6, we’ve balanced and set up the carburettors, and now this vehicle makes an excellent machine for cruising, with plenty of power and torque from the two litre, four cylinder engine. Coupled to that is a four speed manual gearbox, which is very smooth and engages incredibly well, without you having to search or struggle for gears. The rest of the drivetrain is equally good, with no knocks, grinds, clunks clanks, bangs, scrapes or any other noise to intrude on the luxurious quiet that a well sorted P6 brings.
Underneath, the condition is excellent especially when you consider that this car is now nearly 50 years old. Even better is that from our inspection, we can’t see any sign of welding ever being required. The rest of the bodywork is solid throughout, with paintwork in overall excellent condition but which would benefit from improvement in two or three small areas, as you would expect for anything over a certain age. The interior is similar with all the trim intact and unbroken, all the features and switches working, but with the leather starting to show a few signs of age and requiring feeding (which we will be doing while we have the car here). Overall, a few minor visual blemishes don’t detract from what is over all a wonderful car to experience, drive, and travel in. For anyone interested, we also have a collection of pictures of the underside of the car available on request.
Although we have done our best to describe and show this P6, we advise coming to view this car in person so you can experience the pleasure that is a classic Rover up close and in person. Of course, we are open to any questions you may have and can be reached by email on using the button below or by phone. We are open 9 - 5 Monday – Thursday and 9 - 4:30 Friday.
