Bid online during our live auction or at The Saleroom.
A stately Rover much favoured by The Queen...The Rover 'P5 Series' is a group of large, executive, saloons and coupés produced by Rover from 1958 until 1973. Models were marketed under the names Rover 3 Litre, Rover 3.5 Litre and Rover 3½ Litre. The Mark III was presented at the London Motor Show in October 1965, described at the time as ""even more luxuriously trimmed and furnished"". It was again available in two separate, 4-door body styles, coupé and saloon. The Mark III used the same engine as its predecessor, but it now produced 134 horsepower. Externally it could be distinguished by the full-length trim strip along the body and Mark III badging; internally it replaced the rear bench seat with two individually moulded rear seats, making it more comfortable to ride in for four occupants but less so for five. The final iteration of the P5 appeared in September 1967. Now powered by the 3,528 cc Rover V8 engine also used in the 3500, the car was badged as the ""3.5 Litre"", and commonly known as the 3½ Litre. The final letter in the ""P5B"" model name came from Buick, the engine's originator. The Queen's P5B is currently on display at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon.
First registered in October 1970, this Rover P5B is finished in White, and we understand has covered 88,000 miles. The Rover is accompanied by a history folder containing some older invoices and a fresh MoT Certificate. These big Rovers are beginning to appreciate and are comfortable and stylish classics.
