Another fine model and a fine car too the Rover P5. Trans-o-Lites complete the picture. I have a 'garage of all time', a list of cars which were money no object I would own in my own private collection. The Rover P5 is right there, it is an all-time classic. I would have a late model 3500 in metallic red with a black vinyl roof and leather inside. I ought to make this garage a sub-set on the website as a lot of them are here, Triumph 2000, 59 Chevy, Humber Super Snipe, Jag Mk2, E-Type & Mk10, Citroen DS - I think I have most of my favourites

The Rover 2000 was released in 1963 and remained in the range up to 1966. Most of the cars you will see are metallic blue, either light or dark. There are some metallic maroon ones out there but they are very scarce and very pricey. Even higher up the price/rarity scale is a limited edition factory launch model in plated gold.
