    HOW MUCH!!! Prototype V8?

    I agree based on the description of who's selling it.. I've send so many e-mails on it its not funny anymore. The thing about this car is that it takes a lot of knowledge of P6Bs in order to spot the differences as they aren't so plain and obvious. Nor was it designed to be, it was designed to...

    1966? I dont think so!!

    Someone mentioned the value of the car being realistic unless completely original. That's contradictory for a few reasons which I'll state below. 1. Rover picked bare base-units off the production lines. If you think your car can rot, then multiply that by ten. They had no serious coating or...

    1966? I dont think so!!

    Valid questions MikeMelb! The pictures below will answer most of your questions. I am not sure when the Rostyles were fitted, but they were on the car and I simply left them there although there's a set of period-correct NOS hubcaps in the boot. So, Rover already had what we now know to be the...

    5x Magstar Wheels

    Aren't they generic Kelsey Hayes ones with a different centre badge? I think they're on eBay USA.

    5x Magstar Wheels

    Located in Europe, comes with a complete set of wheel nuts and I believe two centre caps. I've never had the others. They came off a 3500S we imported some years ago. The tyres have been removed. They fit standard hubs. They don't require modifications to the wheelarches or anything like that as...

    new modern air conditioning

    Fenair in the UK would be able to help. Do you means as per production or just a retrofitted non OE item Rudiger?

    10.5 V8 high compression pistons

    Try Omega pistons in the UK. Perhaps best to contact them is via JE developments who can furnish you with advise. I have a set of NOS 10.5 to 1 pistons but as you can imagine won't part with them as they're impossible to obtain.

    5-way Dual-Line brakeline junction (nada)..

    Hi Steve, Try Range Rovers, early models have them. Believe some Triumphs had them too as I bought a NOS connector for the warning switch from a Triumph supplier a good number of years ago. Will see if I can find some on eBay and then share here.

    129 Rovers for sale in one auction

    Some interesting cars there - the Sharkstooth looks brilliant and there's the 7th 2000 automatic in export rhd spec there. I've ran that, isn't on a factory plate. Quite convinced some cars will be on a factory plate, but it's a pain to sort out and go through - will check the 426s later though...

    JXC822D - very early V8?

    I have seen it two years ago and it was utterly rotten. Last time I spoke to the owner it was welded, again, and the original EXP engine was going back in. The seats were in a poor state though, which is a shame because they are genuinely the earliest boxpleated seats in a Rover, together with...

    p6 2000 v8 conversion

    No, Chris - they weren't. You need clearances for the exhaust in the front chassisrail, which weren't incorporated on contemporary base units but they were on the later ones as a measure to streamline production and make the V8/2200 less different / save costs. The front crossmember is...
