Rover 1969 P5B 3.5 Litre V8 Coupe Pre 1990 review
Pulls like a train with a good flexible engine and 3 speed auto box. Did not make much difference with MPG doing short around town journeys and longer journeys towing.
MPG. Wish it would do 50 MPG but no amount of tuning will help. Perhaps when they come up with a good battery & motors. Think I will be gone by then.
Would you recommend it?
How well does it tow?
I remember coming out of Matlock, I think, and a Mini (old) buzzing me from behind on the bends. Then we went up a long uphill straight and I put my foot down, not as far as using kick-down, and the mini was left far behind and I was towing an Abbey 418 twin axle.
What's it like without the caravan?
Anything to look out for?
Get one if you can.
Is it easy to live with?
More space than you need.
The clubs treasurer is 6 ft 7 inch and it is fine for him.
Did you buy it new or used?
Where did you buy it?
What was the seller like?
Not as honest as you would like.
