"We brought a Vauxhall off Jesmond a few weeks ago. We never sighted the vehicle owing to us living in the north island. We had to rely on Jesmond's description and honesty.After we brought it, it arrived at our house in Tauranga a few days later in the condition described. Since then we have had it at several club runs and a trip to Auckland. It gets a lot of admiration wherever it goes and is very reliable and a pleasure to drive. Thank you for the gift that was in the car."Willy & Jan Whittingham, Tauranga, New Zealand
The Rover P6 series (named 2000, 2200, and 3500 for its engine displacements) is a saloon car model produced from 1963 to 1977 in Solihull, West Midlands, England. It was voted European car Of The Year in 1964, the very first winner of this title.
A 3-speed Borg Warner 35 automatic was the only transmission option until the 1971 addition of a four-speed manual 3500S model, fitted with a modified version of the gearbox used in the 2000/2200. The letter "S" did not denote "Sport", it was chosen because it stood for something specific on those cars: "Synchromesh". However it is important to note that the 3500s was noticeably quicker than the automatic version of this car with the 0-60 time coming in at 9s as opposed to 10.1 for the standard car. Moreover, due to the fuel-guzzling nature of automatic gearboxes of this era, the manual car's official cycle was 24mpg compared to the automatic' s 22mpg.
