Although a marriage of expediency, the union between Rover's stately P5 model range and the ex-Buick 3528cc all-alloy OHV V8 engine resulted in an unexpectedly fine motorcar. Launched in 1967, the Rover P5B (or P5 Buick if you prefer) was conceived to stave off increasingly refined competition. Available in Saloon and Coupe guises, the big Rover was equipped with independent torsion-bar front suspension, a leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle and disc/drum brakes. Production lasted until 1973 by which time 9,099 Coupes and 11,501 Saloons had been built. However, survivors are thought to only number in the hundreds.
Manufactured in 1971, the Rover was first registered in the United Kingdom on the 3rd of March that year. Fitted with the 3.5-litre V8 engine with the automatic transmission, the Rover is finished in Burnt Grey with Silver Birch roof with Red leather interior upholstery. ‘BEG 933J’ has a recorded mileage of just 41,243 miles from new and is one of just 1,320 home-market cars understood to have been built in 1971. Benefitting from a retrimmed interior, the vendors describes the Rover as a ‘usable car’.
