THE CCW VIEW

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driving -

This Rover is a spe­cial mix of the best of pre-war styling with some ex­tremely use­ful post-war mod­i­fi­ca­tions mak­ing it much more us­able than it may look. This car is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of, and an ambassador for, the best of its era, a sense of a time when things were done prop­erly and ve­hi­cles were made to last. There are none of the waste­ful namby- pamby plas­tic-laden as­pects of to­day’s in­fe­rior ma­chin­ery and they make you sit up straight when you’re driv­ing, which is just as it should be. No won­der the com­pany was able to suc­cinctly sum the P3 up thus, back in pe­riod: ‘One of Bri­tain’s fine cars – now made finer.’ Prices start at just £5k for us­able ex­am­ples, so it’s a lot of clas­sic for the money.
