Footnotes

  • An engineering tour de force, the all-new Rover 2000 (Type P6) debuted in 1963, garnering much acclaim and the Car of the Year award. Constructional innovations included a stressed skeletal base unit to which exterior body panels and suspension components were attached; bell-cranked front suspension adopted to achieve the roomiest possible engine bay; and De Dion rear suspension. 'One has the impression that the car was planned by engineers who are enthusiastic drivers and by stylists who put function before decoration, and the result is something of an object lesson to other manufacturers,' enthused Motor magazine. Introduced in 1966, the twin-carburettor 2000TC version boasted a maximum power output of 110bhp (up from 89) the increase raising top speed from 104 to 108mph.
    This manual-transmission Rover 2000TC was bodily restored and repainted in 2010 and benefits from a recent ignition overhaul. Said to drive well, 'LRM 748L' is described as original throughout and in generally good condition, with very good bodywork and paint. Finished in Mexico Brown with beige cloth interior, the car comes with MoT/tax to August 2012, Swansea V5 document, original handbooks and 'Passport to Service' containing early service history.
