P6 Prices on the up by Nick Larkin

The car has travelled just 3161 miles and, as it’s been serviced annually, is said to have used more oil than petrol during the past 40 years!

The Rover P6 Club is handling the sale of the car for its sole owner, a lady in her 80s.

“Its condition is amazing. If anything the car is even better than it looks in the pictures,” commented club spokesman Mark Gray.

The P6, in brigade red with buckskin leather interior has never been welded and rubberised underseal was applied when new. “.

The club had been asked to sell the car, which is located in Yorkshire, by the owner’s neighbour, a retired police officer.

“The owner herself is as bright as a button – she still has a Ford Fiesta and drives to the South of France in it!”

Mark added “P6 prices were on the rise with top condition V8s going for £6-9000 and four-cylinder cars increasing too.

“As far the car we’ve been asked to help sell, it’s top price for a four-cylinder car but worth every penny, and we hope we can find it a good home.”

The car has also had its cherished registration OAT 454 from new, apparently from the owner’s previous Rover, a P4. The car is located in Yorkshire.
