|Odometer reading||7,500 miles|
|Result||Sold - £1,064|
The P6 was the sixth and the last of the 'P' designated Rover designs to reach production. The vehicle was marketed first as the Rover 2000 and, with a completely new design, was intended to appeal to a larger number of buyers; the P5 was sold alongside the P6 until 1973. The unibody design featured non-stressed panels bolted to a unit frame, similar to the Citroën DS. The Rover 2000 won industry awards for safety when it was introduced. The car featured all-round seat belts and a carefully designed 'safety' interior. The Rover P6 series was voted European Car of the Year in 1964; the very first winner of this title.
This SC version benefits from the larger 2.2 L engine and increased power output (with strengthened gearbox to compensate) and was r was exported to Italy in 2006, the Italian owner has carried out a total repaint of the exterior and performed regular maintenance throughout his ownership. It has been stored under cover and the engine is reported to be in good condition. The interior is original and the driver's seat has a repair to the near-side bolster. Offered at no reserve, this appears very good value indeed.
