Well, if you were looking for your next project car hell, and you specifically wanted a Rover P6, you missed your opportunity to own one on the cheap. So, why the hell am I telling you this now? Ahh, you will have to make the jump for that bit of information….
This is a Rover P6 2000 TC. The TC was specifically built for export markets because of the the redesigned induction manifold needed for the twin SU carburetors and this version was not available within the UK. According to the posting:
This Rover has many new and rebuilt items: water pump, generator, rear brakes, rebuilt fuel pump, rebuilt carbs. This would make an excellent restoration project or parts car. Needs carbs to be installed and front brake work, otherwise motor is in sound working order. Needs extensive floor repair where the floor pan meets the side sill. Great parts availability in the UK and most body panels are available. The interior is red vinyl and is cracking in places. As long as I have had the car it has always been stored indoors and never driven in winter. Have owned this car for 18 years and am the second family to have owned the car since new.
I also have a large amount of spare and NOS parts that will go along with the car.
The car was sold for $405.00. You may start kicking yourself now…. This car included a lot of rebuilt parts. Any competent mechanic should be able to get this car running, because there isn’t any complicated electronics. Think of the challenge of tuning a car with twin SU Carburetors, and keeping the Lucas electrics functioning. But you didn’t take up the challenge, so it’s your loss. See the eBay listing here.
