ABOUT THIS CAR
This particular P5 has benefited from much expenditure in recent years, to return it to its present excellent condition.
It was imported from Australia in 2005, having been delivered new there in 1969. Whilst in relatively sound condition at that time, its 36 years had begun to take its toll cosmetically.
Upon arrival in New Zealand, the car was treated to a full engine recondition, in addition to refurbishment of the suspension components, replacement OEM Woodhead dampers, and new bushes and ball joints throughout. Brakes were renewed, carburettors reconditioned and a new stainless exhaust system to the original pattern was fitted to complete the mechanical update.
During this time the decision was made to respray the sides of the car in the original Bordeaux red, whilst maintaining the original Silver Birch roof, and original paint on bonnet and boot.
The original black leather was in good condition and merely required cleaning, but the carpets were beyond repair and quality wool carpets and over mats as close as possible to the original close pile Wilton, were sourced from a UK specialist.
The original African Mahogany woodwork was refinished in the correct low sheen finish, and a period correct Radiomobile radio replaced the decidedly non period Sony that someone had installed previously.
In short, this particular Rover P5B now presents and drives at the top level, and will continue to be an appreciating asset and a source of pleasure for the new owner, and a proud addition to any classic collection.
