Ref C1242293
Registered 12.12.72 by Colliers near the Solihull factory ( hence the XC reg as were many road test cars ). 51500 genuine miles backed up by 30 + MOT certificates, invoices, service passport and DVLA history of all owners.
Bought by me on a whim from Brightwells in May 2017 as a relatively easy project. The previous owner had passed away and the MOT had expired in Jan 2015. I bought it as the base unit was so good combined with the low mileage and history.
The floors, sills, D posts, jacking points ( all 4 can be used ) , areas under the rear seats, suspension mounting points in the boot were all original and strong. Even the 4 brackets at the end of the floor/ sills used to move the car during assembly were present.
Since buying I have carried out the following :-
1 Removed the wings and cleaned and waxoyled the base unit etc.
2 Had a small amount of welding to the bottom of the rear wheel arches where they meet the sills. The jacking points etc were unaffected. The cover sills are currently off to allow inspection.
3 New leads, plugs, distrubutor cap, engine breather, temperature sender, bonnet prop grommet, throttle rod bush, low horn and heater drain hoses.
4 Removed gearbox sump and renewed filter, oil and gasket.
5 Removed engine sump, cleaned and replaced with new gasket.
6 New studs and brass nuts to ns exhaust down pipe.
7 New middle stainless silencer from Wins International.
8 Overhaul/ lubricate rear brakes plus new pads.
9 Rebuilt carbs by Mark Gray MGBD.
10 Reconditioned brake servo by Mark Gray MGBD.
11 2 new rear shock absorbers from MGBD.
12 New nsf lower ball joint, nsf shock absorber bushes, osf top ball joint, osr front tie rod bush.
13 New windscreen washer bottle and pump.
The list is by no means exhaustive.
I have MOTD the car twice even though it is exempt and the current runs to 04.03.21.
The car now needs cosmetically improving, ideally a respray ( a P6 is one of the easier cars to change colour ) to make it really good. The osf wing needs changing and I have a good secondhand already. There are other spares such as a brand new interior light, rear bumper, nsf door and various new rubber items etc. The carpets, headlining, door cards and most of the leather is good. There is sun damage to the vinyl at the top of the rear seats.
I have owned 2 previous P6 Rovers and this is by far the quietest and smoothest. It just needs some tlc to make it look better.
Specialists I have talked to value it between £5000/6000 but I just want to cover my costs hence £4250.
