The Rover P5B Coupé was nicknamed the"Poor man's Rolls-Royce". It was as much as a discredit then as it is now. What a picture! This Arden Green example was supplied from new in the Netherlands and is in a splendid restored condition. Its provenance is as alluring as its appearance. This particular Rover P5B Coupé was supplied from new to a lady. After a few years of regular use, the low mileage, young car was stalled in a parking garage for an amazing 10 year period. Since 1988 the car has only had two owners and has been extremely meticulously restored in every detail and above all documented! We are looking at a top quality restoration. Documentation shows that over the years no aspect of car has been overlooked and truly everything imaginable has been done to bring this Rover P5B Coupé back better than it ever was. The bodywork is outstanding. The panelwork is totally blemish free and is correctly aligned. The “Arden Green” finish has been expertly applied and is in very fine condition. The inside of the car is also fabulous. The interior trim has black leather seats and grey carpets. The latter are in pristine condition. The leather is starting to show a lovely patina and is delightfully supple. The woodwork, headlining, switching gear and instruments have all been replaced. This car just exudes its newness. Not only has the restoration been top-notch, the continued perfect maintenance has ensured that the car has remained in top condition. In 1969 the Rover P5B Coupé was an exceptionally expensive car costing 29,000 guilders. In comparison a Volkswagen Beetle 1300 was priced at 5,500 guilders at the time. It also had the following accessories: green tinted windows, virtually invisible rear windscreen heating and mobile radio system. A LHD Rover P5B Coupé is a very car with only 402 examples built. The car has a V8 engine initially designed by General Motors and eventually used by Rover (the B in P5B stands for Buick). The aluminium V8 block develops 186 Ps at 5,200 revs and is mated to an automatic Borg-Warner 3-speed transmission. The accompanying documentation deserves to be highlighted separately. The car comes with a log book with descriptions of every part of the restoration and regular maintenance has been recorded. Only top-quality parts were used during the restoration and overhaul and fitted by real expects in their field. The car has been given a "Heritage Trust Certificate". Everything about this fabulous Rover is just right, from the brilliant exterior, the superb mechanical condition, the lush interior to the fantastic documentation. This is the very best and beautiful Rover P5B Coupé available today, of that there is no doubt. Gallery Aaldering is Europe’s leading Classic Cars specialist since 1975!
