1969 Rover P5B

Story and History

1969 Rover P5B Coupe

The P5B, released in September 1967, became an instant classic and British icon, being the Prime Ministerial transport of choice for Margaret Thatcher, Edward Heath, Jim Callaghan and Harold Wilson. They obviously haven't lost their cache, because our Monarch also keeps one, albeit in a more regal shade of green

Fresh from our restoration department we are delighted to offer here this truly splendid (even if we do say so ourselves) early example of the simply gorgeous Rover P5B Coupe

Graeme purchased this car some 4 years ago from a chap in Devon who had lavished over £10.000 on various mechanical and cosmetic restorative works

He liked it so much that he kept it as a personal vehicle, having owned a few in the past and always admiring the P5B's style, using it for over a year before deciding to take the restoration to the next level by commissioning a full bare metal re-paint and re-chroming of trim parts, full interior re-trimming comprising seats, headrests, headlining, parcel shelf, door cards, carpet and refinished hardwood fascias and door cappings

Inside the presentation is as one would expect from a car fit for royalty, with the freshly replaced beige leathers and carpets contrasting beautifully against the woodwork which flows along the fascia and door cappings so elegantly

Prior to ourselves, the Rover has only 5 registered keepers in its 46 years since leaving the factory

We chose a Bentley colour of the 50s and 60s known as Smoke Green for the major part of the bodywork with a Silver Birch roof and contrasting finelines

Under the bonnet the aluminium 3.5 litre V8, designed by Buick and perfected by Rover is in fine fettle running ever so sweetly. In fact, such a good unit that Rover kept using it in their Range Rovers until the 1990s

In summary a superior P5B Coupe

Incidentally we are able to source P5B Saloons and Coupes and commission restorations on a Client's request
