| Description

Rover launched the automatic transmission only P6 3500 V8 in April 1968 and answered enthusiast requests by announcing the 4-speed manual 3500S in October 1971. The new gearbox transformed the car into a sports-saloon that's still a favourite among aficionados. The example modelled was delivered in March 1974 to its first owner, Reverend David Cooper (Captain), Chaplain to the Forces, who was then based in the Rhineland, Germany. Because of this it had to pass German legislation, so modifications were carried out which included fitting 'rounded top' export sidelights, bulb-type Lucas headlamps instead of sealed beams, padding the interior and adding black plastic corners to the rear bumpers to prevent pedestrians damaging their trousers.
