Rover P5

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driven -

HM learned to drive in the ATS dur­ing WWII and her first car was an Austin Util­ity. By 1963, her pri­vate trans­port was a Rover 3-litre saloon, which was even­tu­ally suc­ceeded by a 1971 3.5-litre. The colour schemes were non-stan­dard but aside from a blue light mounted be­hind the front wind­shield, the P5s pro­vided low-key trans­port for HM across the cap­i­tal. Also, as one se­cu­rity of­fi­cer ob­served to the press in the 1970s: ‘In case of trou­ble we can get it out of the Mews – fast.’
