P6 V8 3500 AUTO

P6 by Conrad Conelrad, on Flickr


You know this car. I bought it in 2014. Somewhere there's a thread with the full story and loads of posts about how easy to live with and reliable it's been, but don't look for that thread or read it it's probably really boring.

It has MOT until the 18th July, and will be exempt from May. It is, of course, tax exempt. It is a scruffy thing but generally sound. It ideally wants painting in the original Scarab Blue to compliment its beautiful and rare Mango interior. The current paint is shit, really shit.


It has started leaking brake fluid from one of the rear calipers a bit, and this will need to be fixed. Seals are included, all you have to do is fit 'em. It also has an oil leak from the engine. You can fix that too, if you like.

Under the bonnet you'll find a lovely HUCO electric fuel pump and Powerspark electronic distributor. It also has a recent Varta Silvertop battery which was the priciest one I could find. Good tyres.


The radio does not work, but it lights up real pretty.

I can collect you from the train station or the airport.

Despite the braking fault, that is a very good price. 

 

Problem is I want a Dolomite and that will fill the Inn. I wonder how long it'd take to sell the MGB. Hmm

I so would if :-

 

I needed another car, which I definitely do not.

I was much braver

I had 2 grand I didn't need any more

I didn't have a totally rational fear of Rover P6 rear brakes brought on by your thread about this car.

Either that wasn't there when I wrote it or my eyes were distracted by the pictures of the car.

Speaking of which, what does the cardboard do in front of the radiator?

I meant to remove that for the photo. It just helps the car warm up a bit quicker on freezing cold days. Like those vinyl muffs you used to see on FX4 taxis.

I'm guessing its there to help the car heat up faster or its a fix for a knackered 'stat.

Everyone that couldn't afford a Kenlow had a piece of cardboard in the old days.

Gets the heater working on a short journey to work.

Hmmm, it's funny this should come up, as the Astra has gone (meaning that I have more room) and I was thinking about P6's.

Insurance is also coming in £200 cheaper than that 626 on the eBay tat thread.

Hmmm... Tempting...

Maybe, but it's a neoprene seal. There's evidence of oil at the top of the engine, so it might well just be the rubber seal at the end of the valley gasket. I haven't investigated at all.

I suspect there is no way I can sell all my other crap first and then buy this, as anyone who has the cash available right now will have this in a heartbeat.

It’s probably a very good idea with a car like this. Plus you can blame each other, and claim the other one owns it.
