P5B in india? I know of none......although I really would like to see one.

I have often dreamt of being rich and having a fleet of P5B's....in British racing Green with Cream interiors....obviously......

Yeah dude !!!
Rover P5B in India. Infact I know for a fact that it existed. It was grey on Grey and owned by the ceat companys chairman. Now I'm talking ages back, so I'd like to trace that car or anyother Rover P5B since I'd like to own one.
If anyone knows which car I'm even talking about, and even better know where it is, preferably mumbai, I'd love to know, just to make an offer even.
Thanks.

I do remember seeing a grey one (MSR reg) sitting in a car dealer on airport road but this was in 1995 - dealer was a land grabber and was evicted (next to Leela Hotel) - this was the old P5 that had the Land Rover 3 litre engine not the V8

One of these (not sure if its the same model) was featured in an old issue of Auto India. Was in bad condition when the owner bought it. Got it restored by some real good people with proper wood finish and leather interiors.

Hey guys,

This is great news but anyone know where the cars are? Any news would be appreciative. Also if someone could give me some numbers of classic car dealers in mumbai. Im not talking Vintage, I'm talking like 1970's alpha or something of the sort.
Thanks a million
