1971 Rover P5B Coupe



1971 Rover P5B Coupe

Best model, best colour! Locally owned since 1993, this very desirable Rover is finished in the popular Admiralty Blue with Silver Birch roof complemented by excellent magnolia leather upholstery.

Whilst the 70,0000 recorded miles cannot be guaranteed, the overall condition is consummerate with the mileage.

The vendor has maintained the car in good order despite having little spare time to enjoy using her in recent years.  Beautifully presented and maintained in show condition.

Much restoration work was carried out during the 1990s - including new 3-part sills, new inner and outer D Posts, new A post bottoms, new rear inner wings, three bottom door skins, new boot floor panels and many other welded repairs to various other areas. All brake pipes renewed, new caliper pistons, new pads, shoes, rear brake cylinders and master cylinder rebuilt.  This year a new servo and reconditioned high capacity radiator have been fitted.  

On-site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.
