The Rover P6 was an instant success on its introduction in 1963 – indeed, it won the inaugural European Car of the Year title in 1964. In a sharp departure from Rover’s previously rather staid image, the P6 was seen as bold and dynamic, helped by its up-to-date styling and good handling and performance. Production would last until 1977, a good indicator of how advanced the original design was – all-round independent suspension, disc brakes and a good safety record ensured that the P6 stayed competitive years after some of its rivals had fallen by the wayside.
This car is fitted with the 2-litre single-carburettor engine; while the least powerful in the range at around 90bhp, it still offers very respectable performance when coupled to the four-speed manual gearbox, as is the case here. In good condition, it was resprayed in 1998. The vendor, who has owned the car for 20 years, has recently acquired a power steering system for it; although not yet fitted, it will come with the car. There is a V5c and an MOT valid until October 2018.
