For sale is my Rover P6 2200 SC.
Now I would imagine that you’re curious as to why the car is being sold. The reason the car must be sold is that I am a young man who is in need of a boring, practical car for commuting and as the Rover is my only car, it has to go regrettably.
This very late ‘S’ registration is a very rare, late example of the Rover P6, one of the famous British marques most successful models, which was made concurrently with the new SD1 which eventually superseded the P6 in March 1977. This car is a December 1976, however it remained unregistered until August 1977, sporting an S registration. This car has been very well kept by me during my ownership:
The car was purchased in October 2016 by me as I wanted a classic project to restore as my first car. The car has had months worth of welding work carried out to a high standard by a professional on the floor, the sills, and underneath the rear seats of the car in December 2016 through to approximately March/April 2017, as well as the replacement of various suspension components to make the car as safe and as roadworthy and adhere to the MOT requirements. The car was successful in its MOT, with the welding work being credited by the MOT tester and as a result only receive a few minor advisories which were dealt with directly by the MOT centre before the vehicle was collected. The car did suffer with unsightly surface rust when I purchased it in 2016, however all surface rust on the vehicle has been removed, as well as some surface rust in the door shuts being removed and filled as appropriate. The car did have a crack on the aluminium bonnet when it was purchased by me, however the crack has been aluminium welded by a specialist during the restoration of the car. The car has also benefitted from a full, bare metal respray to enhance the appearance of the vehicle and return the vehicle to its former glory. The cost of the respray was £2500. The interior of the vehicle is in very good condition, with the lovely blue/grey velour upholstery being free from any tares, fading or staining. The carpets are in great condition also having been thoroughly cleaned when the car was valeted shortly after the restoration. The dash board is free from any splits or cracks, and is unblemished. All of the gauges and instruments inside the cabin work as intended, showing correct and accurate readings
Mechanically the car is excellent. The car never fails to start, hot or cold and runs faultlessly and is free from any hesitancy, misfiring etc. The gearbox works excellently, with all gears being easy to engage and the clutch bites firmly as it should. The brakes on the car work excellently, stopping the car safely.
The car comes with a large, and extensive history file, including the original bill of sale and all the original, British Leyland documentation which is in superb condition. Not only that, but the history file includes years worth of invoices and receipts detailing everything that has been bought for the car by previous owners and myself, as well as previous V5s being supplied in the history file. Provided with the car are a number of service manuals, magazines and catalogues regarding the Rover 2200 range of cars.
This car was invited to be featured in the motoring magazine, Driving Force, which is an award winning owners club magazine produced by the established Rover P6 Owners Club.
The car has 43,565 miles on the clock which is believe to be genuine, however at the time of purchase this mileage may have slightly increased.
Thanks for the interest.
