Who needs a Jaguar when the Rover P5 is as good – and cheaper?
If it’s good enough for Queens, mothers of Queens and prime ministers, surely the Rover 3 litre must be ideal luxurious transport for the classic enthusiast. Yes, the Rover P5 3-litre was the favorite wheels of our current Queen and her Mother as well as Maggie Thatcher, Ted Heath, Harold Wilson and James Callaghan. The P5 succeeded a long line of high quality British cars starting as far back as the 1901 Rover Eight produced by the Rover Cycle Company. The Rover P5 was originally to be a small car to compliment the P4 and Land Rover but chief Engineer, Maurice Wilks, suddenly realised that Jaguar had been making good profits with its large, luxurious MKVll, and decided to recommend a large car instead.
