The Rover P5 is a series of large saloons and coupes produced from 1958 to 1973. The models were sold under the names Rover 3 Litre and Rover 3.5 Litre. The cars combined elegance with dignity and traditionally equipped interiors. They were very popular for transporting dignitaries including British Prime Ministers (Harold Wilson, Margaret Thatcher). A total of 69 141 examples were produced.

The Rover P5B was produced between 1967 and 1973 and was the last version of the P5. It was sold as a 4-door sedan and coupe. It was powered by Buick’s 3.5-litre aluminium V8 engine (hence the letter B in the name), producing 160 hp (120 kW). A total of 20,600 P5Bs were produced.
