Description

Rover introduced their all new 3 litre saloon in 1958, and it was their first unitary construction car. Designed by stylist David Bache, it was a very large and distinguished looking vehicle, with a well appointed and luxurious interior. The engine was a 3 litre straight six, which was capable of propelling the car to a respectable 100 mph. In 1960, the car received front wheel disc brakes replacing the original all drum set up. A four door coupe version joined the saloon with the introduction of the Mk II and this featured more comprehensive instrumentation and a lowered roofline. By now both models had received an increase in engine power due to a redesigned cylinder head which had been developed by tuning guru Harry Weslake, this gave the car improved acceleration and a higher top speed. The Mark III version arrived in 1966 and this featured improved seats, and revisions to interior and exterior trim.
This lovely example of a true British luxury car, the Rover P5, has clearly been cherished over the course of its life, and shows just 71,000 miles recorded. UK Right-Hand drive examples are more often than not found in terrible condition in the UK due to our adverse weather conditions, making this solid example that has lived in the more hospitable Mediterranean climate, a desirable offering indeed. What a fun and luxurious entry into the classic car world.
