A 1972 Rover P5B Coupé, registration number COX 950K, chassis number 845068860, engine number 84017664, silver birch over Arden green. Introduced in 1969, the P5B featured the new Buick 3.5 litre V8 engine in the svelte coupé and saloon body styles. They found favour with government ministers, the business elite and even had royal patronage. As a coupé version COX 950K is one of the most sort after examples with its contrasting colour lowered roofline, sculpted rear seats and Rostyle wheels. COX 950K was originally supplied by main Rover dealers Colliers, Abbey Road Garage Ltd. Erdington, Birmingham, to its first owners, CH Brown & Sons Ltd, Birmingham, for the princely sum of £2,836.80 including optional extras of a heated rear window and two tone paint (original bill of sale on file).
Brown & Sons would retain the Rover for eighteen years having all maintenance and servicing carried out by Colliers (receipts on file). Since then there have been four other recorded keepers including our our vendor. Presented in arguably the best colour combination of silver birch over Arden green with a saddle tan leather interior, COX 950K is said by our vendor to be running and driving but is now in need of some TLC to bring the car up to its former glory having seen little recent use. The Rover will be offered for auction with a vast history file contained within two ring files with the original sales invoice, maintenance receipts, previous MOTs, magazine articles, original owners manual and workshop manual. V5C to follow, MOT and tax exempt See illustrations
