This Beautiful Australian Delivered Rover 75 P3 was sold by Regent Motors in South Melbourne as confirmed by the Dealer Plate. It Presents Very Well with its period Dark Olive Green exterior and Excellent Chromework. The Interior Trim is Classically Styled with Beige Leather Seats, Matching Carpets and Glossy Wooden Door Trim Caps and Wooden Dash. The dash evokes that Classic Post War Style with the Original Jaegar Instruments providing the Driver with all the Necessary Information.
The P3 drives well with the 4 Speed Gearbox being very positive in selection. The transmission was fitted with a Free-Wheeling Clutch which allowed the car to coast without the engine acting as a brake. This was designed as a Fuel Saving Device and was selected by a Dash Mounted Knob which indicates either Fixed(Normal) mode or Freewheel mode. The P3 will provide very Comfortable and Stylish Touring for you and your friends in a True Classic British Saloon. You can also enjoy the Sunshine with the ‘Australia Only’ optional Sliding Sun Roof.

This car was owned by the P4 Guild’s former editor John Clement, it was given a major overhaul and cosmetic upgrade to be readied for his daughter’s wedding back in 2017. This P3 is offered in an excellent tidy and roadworthy condition, it has only been used for local runs and has covered minimal miles since the work was carried out. It drives extremely well and can keep up with modern day traffic without issue. It will be supplied with a full roadworthy certificate; the car is currently on non-transferable club plates but can be re-registered on the CPS without any issues.
