The 3500 Rover P6 was introduced in 1968 and was manufactured all the way through to the end of P6 production in 1976. The 3500 was a huge success story for Rover and the model also proved very popular with the Police forces as a traffic patrol car.
This remarkably original example is finished the popular 1970's colour of Mexico Brown with beige upholstery. TRR 554L appears a very low mileage car with a recorded mileage of 35,000 which is believed genuine. We first sold the car in August 2013 with 32000 miles recorded to a West Yorkshire barrister who covered in the region of 2000 miles commuting from the Harrogate area to Leeds City centre on weekly basis. Several thousand pounds were spent on preparation to include a full MOT, full service, new carpets, furflexes, new ignition lock, new brake light switch, new rear rubber bump stops, new rear flexi hoses and engine bay paintwork and detailing. We sold the car again in 2014 to a long term customer who changed his Rover P4 after nine years of ownership. Since then further expenditure includes new front seats belts, new clutch cover and clutch plate and new front and rear brake pads. Since 2014 the Rover has covered another faultless 1000 miles.
The Rover has a superb, straight, original body and the underside is exceptionally clean and original. Floors and sills all appear original and are in excellent structural condition which would fit with the super low mileage. The interior also presents superbly with a great deal of originality. The carpets, door cards, seats, dashboard and headlining are all in lovely condition and as you would expect with a low mileage car. It is clear from the stunning interior this car has spent much of its life in a dry, well-kept garage. The Mexico Brown paintwork is of a beautiful standard and the chrome work is very bright. Our 3500S has a particularly tidy and original boot compartment with spare wheel and battery cover and the engine bay presents well with superbly painted and detailed inner wings.
Our Rover is outstanding to drive. The 3500 V8 engine is just perfect with outstanding performance and it feels strong, well maintained and set up correctly. The oil is clear and brand new, the plugs are fresh and the car is just ready to use and enjoy. The car is an absolute delight to drive and the manual gearbox is superb. In the past sixteen years TRR 554L has covered 11000 miles and we can say with confidence that this car is totally reliable and will prove a pleasure to own. Whether bought for showing, regular use or long distance touring, this 3500S should not disappoint and will prove to be a fantastic driving, useable classic car with performance to keep up modern day driving.
