"I had been trying to sell my classic car through “Trademe” for months with no success. A couple of people had mentioned Jesmond so in desperation I contacted him. He very promptly arranged to inspect the car and having already done his homework gave me an idea of what he could sell the car for and confirmed it in writing a day later. The “on behalf” deal was written up and I knew what was happening at all times with constant correspondence. The car sold in a couple of weeks and everything was taken care of by Jesmond. I am very happy with the result and felt I could trust him from the moment I met him. He's too trust-worthy to be a car dealer. He's more a car lover who helps others move on from their indulgences."Brian Campbell, Rangiora, North Canterbury, New Zealand
Revolutionary when new, and still well respected today, Rover's P6 makes a practical and enjoyable classic.
Back in 1963, the Rover P6 epitomised quality and sophistication that rivals struggled to match. It was advanced, yet didn't scare buyers - in fact, it became Britain's favourite executive car during the 1960s and '70s.
Rover was known as a maker of refined and staid cars for the professional classes until 1963. That was when its young engineers' bright ideas were let out on an unsuspecting world in the Rover 2000. Base-unit construction with unstressed panels, all-round disc brakes, racing-type De Dion rear suspension, even a rallying programme¦ it all lowered the average age of a Rover buyer by 10 years. The four-cylinder 2000 became a 2200 in 1973, after being joined by the pocket-rocket V8-powered 3500 and the more desirable 3500 ‘S'.
The manual box 3500 S was the motorway police favourite and once you drive this car, you'll understand why.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- With a top speed of 122 MPH, this Rover gets under your skin. It feels great. It sounds great and it goes great.
- A most exciting car to drive, this car being an ‘S', benefited from improved performance. A high performance sporting saloon – one that can be enjoyed as a daily driver and/or as a weekend classic. It can be driven at speeds all day and wouldn't miss a beat.
- Good Original Car with a straight body and good paint.
- Nice tidy interior and performance galore.
- The brakes - discs all round, provide good strong stopping power.
- A technically audacious classic car that encapsulates establishment values, feels beautifully made – a car that is more than capable of coping with the speeds of modern traffic. And yet, for all of its innovations, it won't break the bank to buy or run.
- Rare & Desirable
Buy now while these cars are still (relatively) cheap. They are durable classics with family practicality, and running-costs are quite reasonable. Like all "Rover Company" Rovers, they also have a great deal of charm.
Remember that material goods aren't the only things that can be passed down from fathers to sons. Interests and enthusiasm are intangibles that, given some nurturing and the right circumstances, can easily bridge the generation gap and this classic has the additional honor of representing good health and a continuing celebration of life.
Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
