ROVER 3500 P5B Coupe 1969

vehicle overview

1969 Rover 3.5 P5B Coupe Automatic. Silver Birch over Factory Black with Oxblood leather upholstery and barley carpets. This super Rover has just recently been re-commissioned after four years in a private collection and the car has covered only 1500 miles in the last twelve years. The paintwork is displaying a deep shine and the leather upholstery very good with no rips or tears, also a new set of carpets has just been fitted. The engine is very strong with good oil pressure, the gearbox smooth and no whines or noises from the axle. The 3½ Litre saloon variant was a favourite of high-ranking Government Ministers, and served as Prime Ministerial transport for Harold Wilson, Edward Heath, James Callaghan and Margaret Thatcher. As testament to their suitability, the last batch of P5Bs to roll off the Rover line in June 1973 was purchased by the British government and placed in storage, to be released for government use as required, subsequently registered relatively new looking P5s were therefore still familiar sights in Westminster for more than a decade after production had ended. When Margaret Thatcher entered Downing Street in 1979 after her election victory, she was driven in a 1972 model. It was during Thatcher's eleven-year tenure that the P5 was eventually phased out as a Prime-Ministerial car, in favour of the Jaguar XJ. Queen Elizabeth II also owns an Arden Green Rover P5B Saloon "JGY 280", which is on display at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire and was seen in the 18 May 2003 episode of BBC motoring show, Top Gear. The top end of the market now sees these cars in excess of £30000 so we see this car at very good value at the asking price. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted.
