    New Project found, 1974 Almond P6 3500

    The S has gone but I think the one on eBay is definitely worth a trip up the M4/M25 for a look and to put in a cheeky bid if it's mostly solid. The interior seems a bit rough with the cracked dash and seats, but a great colour and 'Over The Top' number plate, and looks good on those alloys.

    Pair of Series 1 V8s

    NJT 953J was up for sale near to where I was visiting and very similar to OFC so I decided to take a look. Just out of idle curiosity...but it had steel front wings, new carpets, a better steering wheel finisher - plus it was solid, with good chrome and Sandalwood interior and had been off the...

    My rover p6 v8 forsale

    The only thing this car is missing is Jerry from The Good Life getting out of the driver's seat. I hope you change your mind and decide not to sell.

    Pair of Series 1 V8s

    Thanks very much Phil, and yes it is. Being a locally supplied car and seemingly well looked after was the clincher. Eventually I hope to have a tidy and well-sorted car that I can use at least nine months of the year. In other words, the opposite of my old Series 2: clouds of smoke, exhaust...

    Pair of Series 1 V8s

    Hi Bougsy It would have been a real turn up if our Uncle Berts had been one and the same, but mine lived in Kent

    Pair of Series 1 V8s

    Hi everyone I'm new to the forum and posted to the Welcome section recently, having set out to buy a Series 1 V8 and ending up with two. Please skip the next paragraph if you don't want the background to me getting the cars... I have liked the P6 ever since my Uncle Bert had a '64 2000 in the...

    Great that you've had it from new. There can't be many one-owner cars from 1970 around.

    Thanks for your welcome. NJT953J is an even closer almost twin to your car, registered in Dorset in October 1970. Apparently it was always kept locally, right up until I acquired it last year. OFC was registered in March 1970 and supplied by the BLMC dealer in Oxford, and is now back in its...

    Thanks Mick, it's good to know I'm not the only one! That sound when pulling steadily away from the lights is the best there is, in my humble opinion. Simon

    Thanks for your welcome. You are of course absolutely right...they are already keeping me busy! I have to put my hands up however and admit straight away - probably to the disdain of many members - that I've left most of the oily bits to my skilled and ingenious mechanic neighbour, Dave, who...

    Thanks Phil, for your welcome. Attached are a couple of photos of OFC after I had got it and given it a bit of a clean. I will take some more pictures and some of NJT, although it is almost identical to OFC - Brigade Red but with Sandalwood instead of Buckskin. Simon

    Hi - I'm new to the forum and from Oxfordshire, with two Series 1 V8 P6s I acquired last summer. (I was only planning to get one, but...) One is now back on the road after nearly twenty years in a barn; the other was last on the road in about 2015. Simon
