    What do we all think of this one...?

    Definitely overpriced. I just sold my immaculate (almost) 1969 2000TC for less than £3000. OK, I had been out of work for 6 months and I knew what work was needed this year. I also just found a brace of P6's-a 1965 2000SC and a 1968 3500, allegedly from the first month of manufacture. Both are...

    Chassis numbers

    Does anybody look after the archives? The reason I ask is that I have recently come across 2 p6's that have been stored for a number of years- a 2000SC from 1965 and 3500 from 1968. Both are left hand drive, rust-free and start and drive. Wondering whether to buy them or not. Thanks for any...

    shock absorbers

    Hi fellow roverites, I am looking for an alternative to the rear shock absorbers fitted on my 2000TC. The reason being that I live on tenerife and it is prohibitive getting them sent over. Are there any accepted direct replacements from more common cars. Thank you, Clive

    Electric fuel pump

    Thanks for the info Peter. It is a generic fuel pump, not necessarily for a p6. I just needed one quickly. I am going to re-fit the pump at the tank tomorrow and see if it helps. Otherwise, do you know where I could get a regulator? Clive

    Electric fuel pump

    Hi guys and gals, About 6 months ago I replaced my mechanical fuel pump with an electric one. Yesterday it failed. I ordered a new one yesterday and it arrived today. After fitting it the car ran perfectly, with one slight problem. Fuel is now p*ssing from the float chambers. All I can think of...
