Rover 3.5 Coupé

During my stay in London, England I worked for DHL Couriers. After work we would adjourn to a local pub. Always parked outside was a Rover 3.5 Coupé.


This is the 1971 Rover 3.5 Coupé (P5B)

I made an offer to buy the car which was accepted!!

Also in the photgraph above is my 1973 Simca 1100 Van. I travelled around Europe in this vehicle twice as well as using it for courier work in London and Paris when I worked for DHL Couriers

Here's another shot of the car


The interior was well appointed with rear heater, courtesy lights and picnic tray.


Note the reading lights fitted to the adjustable headrests.

The Saloon version of this car was use by HM the Queen as her private transport.

I eventually shipped the car to New Zealand and owned it there for about 6 years.
During that time I had the interior restored with new Connelly hides for the front seats,and
the timber recoated.
The exterior was repainted with and bumpers re-chromed. There was also mechanical work carried out. I travelled over 110,000miles in this car. Back to Automobiles
