Having come from a cherished ownership, we're delighted to be able to offer this remarkably original Rover P6. Sold to its original owner on the 18th April 1973, this P6 3500S is finished in Mexico Brown, with beige vinyl roof and is complimented with a beige interior with optional / desirable 'ET' headrest and being a pre '74 model she comes with the high-compression V8 engine offering greater performance with the added benefit of power steering too!

Currently showing 37,500 miles, this beauty remains in remarkable condition, with the 70's Mexico Brown exterior having a wonderful deep shine and remarkably free from any notable blemishes or marks. Having had the car on our ramp we're happy to say the underbody / floors, sills etc are in excellent structural condition, free from damage and just as you'd hope to find on a car which has obviously been well cared for. Opening the doors, and the interior remains bright and airy; the seats, door cards, dashboard, headlining and carpets are all in lovely condition. This 3500S is just as you'd hope to find and inspection of the boot area and engine bay further adds to this, the boot carpet looks to have carried little over the years, the spare wheel and battery covers both still in place and 'popping' the bonnet we're presented with a well presented, original, engine bay.

Settling behind the wheel, it's great to see all the original features, there's even the original "ROVER" crested radio blanking plate, no nasty speakers holes ..... which means everything's perfectly set up for hearing the glorious 3.5 litre V8 engine!!! Turn the ignition and the engine bursts into life and settles into a smooth idle, a "woofled" rumble coming from the exhaust. It's tempting to sit and enjoy 'blipping' the throttle, just to feel the body rock slightly and the exhaust note harden, but the greatest pleasure comes from driving. For a car harking from 70's British Leyland we can honestly say this particular Rover P6 3500S is an absolute revelation, the power delivery is wonderful, thanks to this car featuring the High-Compression motor, gear-changes are crisp and brakes solid, with invoices for works confirming a well maintained car, which has barely driven 7k miles in the last 10 years. We've enjoyed taking this car home on dry days and she rides perfectly, easily keeping up with modern motoring but offering so much more enjoyment and appeal, we'd happily drive her anywhere!

With a good history file, invoices for work carried out in recent years, dealer book pack and in wonderful condition, this Rover P6 3500S is an absolute delight to drive and we can say with confidence that whether being bought for showing, regular use or even long distance touring this 3500S is fantastic reliable classic and will prove a real pleasure to own for many years to come.
