1974 ROVER P6 3500S For Sale

Having completed 550 miles since restoration, this lovely scarab blue Rover presents beautifully and is ready for the road/ show season. Being the rarer "S" model with manual transmission and 3. 5 litre V8 engine, this really is the model to own.
Bought as a part restored project in April 2018, the car has now been fully restored to a very high standard. The entire braking system has been replaced and the suspension system has been removed and fitted with new bushes and ball joints and repainted. Minimal welding was required and the car really is a very solid example including all the common P6 rot areas such as sills, D posts, bulkhead, hockeysticks, flitch panels, under rear seat section and rear suspension mounts. The panels were removed, repaired where necessary, prepped and repainted off the car in direct gloss and really set the car off well against the new stainless steel bumpers and re-covered black vinyl roof. The car has also received new body rubbers all round.
The original stainless steel 3500S wheel trims have been polished and repainted and the car wears the correct size, new Hankook 185/ 80/ 14 tyres.
The engine sounds superb through the correct "S" bore exhaust whose
centre and rear box are new mild steel sections. The engine idles beautifully, is very responsive, and maintains good oil pressure. Transmission is through an original P6 4 speed gearbox which selects gears well, hot or cold and does not jump out of gear as so many do.
The car has a black box pleated cloth interior with new carpet and door cards shows minimal wear and is a lovely place to be.
The car benefits from a number of practical additions/ extras including full boot mounted spare kit, halogen headlamps, rear seat belts, front and rear fog lamps, original Rover mudflaps set, electronic ignition and a period looking modern radio with rear shelf mounted speakers.
This is a great opportunity to own a well sorted, beautifully presented example of the most desirable of the P6 Rovers.
