The P6 or Rover 2000 was launched in 1963 and promptly won car of the year. It was an advanced design with panels that bolted on to a base unit, disc brakes on all four wheels and de-dion tube rear suspension. The SC version was capable of over 100mph and quickly gained a reputation for strength and reliability – in the 60’s Rover struggled to meet demand; they aimed for production of 250 cars per week but by 1965 were producing more than 800. Several detail changes were made to the model through the 60’s particularly improvements to the brakes but the 2000 remained visually similar until the introduction of the Series 2 in 1970.

This car is one of the very last series 1 models, a Rover 2000 in Tobacco leaf registered September 1970. It came to us as a bereavement sale, has been in the same ownership for the last 20 years and the V5 shows just three previous owners. It was owned by father then son until 1997 and just one long term owner since. The mileage reading is 70,000 which is correct. It presents in beautiful condition and other than two paint imperfections on the bonnet, the finish is best described as excellent – it was re-painted 20 years ago.

The all important base unit appears to be in very good order as are the engine and gearbox and it drives beautifully. The interior trim is all original and as you can see from the photos is in good serviceable condition but not perfect. The history file contains the original bill of sale, original insurance cover note, new and old registration documents, old tax discs, MOT’s back to the 1980’s and various bills.

We are very keen on the Rover P6 and we have sold several examples recently. These highly useable and practical saloons have been under-valued for years but prices are starting to rise and good Series 1 cars are becoming quite hard to find. This one offers great value for money.
Ready to use with MOT until October 2018. Viewing near Woburn, Beds.

Please call if more detail is required.
