Rover P5 Coupe 1965
The Rover P5 series, was a group of large saloon and coupe automobiles produced from 1958 until 1973.
The Mark II version of the P5 (which is the model we have here) was introduced in 1962. It featured more power 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 quarter light windows.
The most notable addition to the range was the option of the CoupÃ© body style launched in autumn 1962. Unlike most coupÃ©s, which tend to be two-door versions of four-door saloons, this retained the four doors and was of the same width and length as the saloon, but featured a roof line lowered by two and a half inches (6 cm) along with thinner b-pillars, giving it the look of a hardtop. Hydrosteer was standard on the Coupe.
Production of the Mark II ended in 1965, by which time 5,482 coupÃ©s and 15,676 saloons had been produced.
