1969 ROVER P6 Series One 3.5 Litre V8 Automatic Saloon ~ SOLD
This wonderful Rover is the best P6 we have ever had the privilege to offer for sale.

It was bought new in October 1969 by Mr Herbert Gardner of Manchester who specified it with the now very rare Triplex full panoramic glass roof with the removable zipped headlining.

He kept the car for 21 years until 1980 when he transferred ownership to his son, Major Robert Gardner, a serving army officer who took the car with him as he was stationed around the country.

In 1985 Major Gardner commenced a full restoration of the car that took until late 1987 to be completed.

The car was stripped back to a shell and all substandard metal removed and new metal welded in.

The engine and gearbox were both fully overhauled and refitted along with numerous other new parts, radiator, brake discs, suspension, starter motor, fuel pump etc.

New outer panels, doors, wings and sills were bought and fitted and then the car was fully resprayed.

The original leather seats were re-connolised by Connolly Bros Ltd themselves at their Wimbledon factory and new carpets were fitted.

All this work is detailed fully in the two large history files along with a series of photographs showing the work as it progressed.

On leaving the Army, Major Garner retired to a small Yorkshire village and continued to drive the car for a few miles each year as can be seen from the series of MOT certificates in the history file.

In August 2005 he had M H Annable & Son of Derby, a well respected Rover P6 specialist, fully overhaul the brakes, fit new suspension bushes, clean the chassis and waxoyle the car at a cost of 1127.

In April 2006 he took the car back to M H Annable & Son for them to fully repaint the car and waxoyle the inner cavities at a cost of 1885.

A short time after this work had been completed, the car was placed into dry storage where it remained until June 2013 when Major Gardner sold it to a local classic car enthusiast who bought it as a present for his wife.

It was recommissioned for the road and since then has been used to attend shows and is now for sale due to a house move and not having enough garage space.

The documentation file contains the current V5, the total ownership history showing the three owners from new as provided by the DVLA, the current MOT certificate which runs until September 2018, two extremely detailed history files full of invoices, MOT certificates, running totals of costs and mileages, insurance policies and the photographs of the restoration. The history file also shows us that the current mileage reading of 9047 is not correct as the total mileage is in excess of 100,000.

Rules that commenced in October 2014 mean that the car will need to be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner but this will be free as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class.

Very difficult to find in this condition.

Prospective buyers are welcome to come and view the car in our Leeds showroom.

UK wide professional delivery is available. Please ring for a quote. We are also happy to deliver to any mainland port for export.
