Sold Rover P5 3L MK2C 1965

Rover P5 3L MK2C 1965



Just occasionally, a really superb example of a marque appears for sale and this is it.

Sometimes referred to as "the poor man's Roll's Royce,  the P5 was extremely popular with United Kingdom Prime Ministers and government officials of its day. Even the Queen is said to have favoured driving her P5.

The Mark II version of the P5 was introduced in 1962. It featured more power from the same 3.0 L engine and an improved suspension, while dropping the glass wind deflectors from the top of the window openings which also, on the front doors, now featured quarterlight windows. 

Production of the Mark II ended in 1965, by which time 15,676 saloons had been produced.

This car is in stunning condition having been very well cared for all its life. It would be hard to come across another example like it. It has done 130049 miles and has had five owners from new. Motor overhauled in 2003.

Paintwork is as new. All the rubbers, trims, external trim are like new.

The original interior is faultless and doesn't have the slightest imperfection. The mechanics are perfect, it doesn't use oil or water. The tires and battery are as new. It comes with the original car jack, car tools, owner's manual, service log books and over $9000 worth of maintenance / service receipts.

This car is being presented as if its hardly been used. It also goes incredibly well.

It would appeal to someone who wants the best and I will only sell it to a good home. Its too good not to.
