    Beautiful car. Interesting to see the mix of new and old style switches for lights and wipers.

    Tobacco leaf 3500

    In the end it was the reserve tap causing the problem. At the end of August I have got him MOT´d and did some 180 mls without any problems.

    Tobacco leaf 3500

    Thanks for the tips John. I have tried the reserve tap and it was not completely in the right position. I hope this was the problem but did not have time yet for a test drive. Hope to do that this week. I will keep you posted.

    Tobacco leaf 3500

    Last december I bought a 1975 P6 3500 automatic in Tobacco leaf. The MOT was expired but it was driveable. A few weeks ago I have started to get it ready for MOT. The parking brake did not work and when I investigated it turned out the brake pads were very worn so I have changed these. Such a...

    Vanden Plas Automatic 1982

    She drives very well. I haven´t used it very much but I plan to take it to England this summer. With 3 kids and luggage in the back she will be lowered!

    Re: FITTING OF SPARE TYRE ON BOOT? Why would you bother fitting the spare on the outside? It spoils the beautiful lines of the P6 and you can´t see in the rearview mirror. The spare of mine is in the boot and I have been on holiday in England with the P6 several times already with 2 adults and...

    New addition

    From a former owner I learned that in the past headlight washers were fitted. The reservoir is still visible under the bonnet, so I have to re-install them.

    Today I have bought a new addition to my fleet. It is a 1982 Rover 3500 Vanden Plas Auto. After having sold my Saab 900 there was a place to fill :D

    Time to say goodbye ?

    It would be a shame to see your P6 go, it is a really beautiful car (even in a muddy New Forest :D ). On the other hand I do understand your choice for een Saab 900 because they are a great drive and feel very solid and modern (I only just sold mine because having 9 (!!) cars was a bit to...

    And another MOT failure, now passed!

    Re: And another MOT failure This weekend I have replaced the rear wheel bearing. What a terrible job :evil: I have changed wheel bearings on Mini´s, Maxi´s, Allegro´s, etc but never had the strange construction Rover designed. The make it look easy in the workshop manual but you have to put a...

    And another MOT failure, now passed!

    Last friday my ´64 P6 failed its MOT for the first time in 5 years :cry: First just before it went into the service bay the indicators stopped working (they were fine on the way to the MOT station). It turned out to be a bad connection at the fuse which I could easily repair. The MOT went fine...
