FOR SALE  “ Primrose”

Rover P6 3500 auto V8, year 1971. Only 31,000 miles, 12 months MOT, in superb, original, unrestored condition & one for the ‘purists’. Almond yellow with black leather upholstery & beige carpet. Original sales invoice available. This fantastic Rover P6 was sold new in the UK & was then taken to the Netherlands in 1997. From then on this beautiful car was cherished by private collectors, which reflects the amazing condition to date. The car is well documented with a service history from new. This car has never been restored, only enhanced with delightful ‘extras’ including chromed Rostyle wheels, Webasto sliding/folding sunroof, ‘ET’ front headrests, rear headrests etc. The car has fine original features including the spare wheel on the boot lid with embossed cover, leather- rimmed steering wheel, Lucas ‘Square 8’ lamps mounted on the front bumper.

This Rover P6 3500 V8 is one of the first Series 2 models, yet retains some Series 1 details such as the pattern of the leather, dashboard switches for the choke/petrol reserve, large ROVER lettering on the boot lid.

This car features the magnificent 180 SAE bhp V8 engine, automatic gearbox, power steering/ brakes.

The car was purchased by myself from a classic car specialist in the Netherlands & has been re-commissioned & further enhanced in my ownership, including new battery/cut of switch, spare wheel can be placed either in or on the boot, brake servo re-build by a specialist, front new brake callipers, pads, flexible brake hoses, new front wheel bearings, new front shock absorbers mounting bushes, brakes bled/new brake fluid, new hoses, antifreeze, thermostat, water pump, Rostyle wheels re-furbished etc.

“ Primrose ‘ has to be seen to be appreciated to see just what a rare & super original example she is.
