Hi, I am new to the forum and have just bought a Rover P6 2200SC. I am wondering if anyone has a towbar they might sell? There is one on EBay right now but it does not look like others I have seen in photos so will probably avoid it. Thanks.
 
Hi Gordon, welcome to the forum

I have moved your post to the 'wanted' section as you will get more luck there.

There are a few different tow bars that fit, but this is the common one

Hello Gordon. I have one broadly the same as Quattro's photo above. Assuming your car has it's original bumper without overriders then it's the correct bar. If overriders are fitted you need the angled bar which clears them.
£90 including postage up to you.

This is my rear bumper.

I believe the standard bars, like TRMs do fit, but you have to move the overriders to the other side of the bumper bracket so they are further out on the bumper. Some people are ok with this look, but it may be an idea that you try to move them to see if you like it, before fitting a tow bar.

Not the best picture, but it's the only one I have.
 
Down here in Oz there is a locally made bar (assumption!) that consists of a tube about the length between the bumper irons, bumper irons welded to it, and ears for the bumper to fit to.

There are plates for mounting a towing tongue as in above pic. Bumper iron detail.

The towing tongue is like this - usually in better shape, and chromed.

If the tongue is removed the bar is pretty much invisible.
