Thanks for sharing, though I wouldn't say unseen. I saw it in a rally in Pune in 2010, (had posted some pics too if I remember), plus she attended events in Lucknow in the past.

I'm told there is a superb Rover 16 for sale in Bombay - one caring lady owner.

Hi All, Thought you'd like to see my newly-painted Rover P3, about which there was some discussion in this thread before. Not sure whether my '84 Rangie qualifies as a Classic Rover as well - you can see it in the second pic! Cheers, Sarojesh

Looks like a very neat restoration and finish. Please do post interior snaps and also if you don't mind sharing snaps of the restoration when underway. Nice Range Rover also . Are the tire size correct on the Rover ?

Cheers

Hi,

Thanks. Not a restoration - the car has always been kept in very good condition all its life by my family - but just re-painting and re-upholstering. Unfortunately do not have any snaps when that work was being done but have attached some interior pics including one of the roof which Kartikeya wanted to see.

The car has two sets of rims - 16 & 17 for city and hill driving respectively. Now fitted with the city-driving rims and tyres.

Cheers, Sarojesh

Also, I was wondering whether anybody knows how I can go about buying a British-built Land/Range Rover of the 90s or later. I'd prefer a diesel one with low mileage but will settle for a decent one. Any ideas/leads about how to locate one? Thanks, Sarojesh

Thanks for the pictures , very well done/ maintained sir.

Regarding the land rover, why don't you post in the land rover support group on the forum, I am sure they would be able to help you find one.

Best wishes
