1968-1976 ROVER P6B 3500 specifications

1968-1976 ROVER P6B 3500 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Although the Rover 2000 was capable, in no way could it be described as quick. However with the insertion of the ex-Buick V8 it became Rover’s first Q-car, offering Jaguar matching pace and poise. The P6B caught on rapidly, selling in huge numbers despite its loftier price tag than the four-cylinder models. Initially offered in automatic guise only, the more sporting 3500S with four-speed manual gearbox appeared in 1971 which redressed the balance. Take care when buying as clean body panels can hide many horrors beneath.
