Rover 1951-1990 - 2018 Market Review
Rover P5B coupe

The number of 1950s-70s Rovers in the market gives rise to questions of who buys cars like these when they have been in the same ownership for many years.

Certainly, $8000 is not much money for a very good P4 sedan. Nor is $6000 for a V8-engined P6B or under $2500 for the 2.0-litre version.

Rover today is recognised as a source of luxury off-road product and doesn’t generate a lot of recognition for or affinity with its older passenger models. 3.5-litre Coupes that looked set to consistently hit $20,000 are retreating and pushing values for earlier 3-litre versions lower too.

Anyone seeking later-model luxury could consider a Vanden Plas-spec SD1 at $6000.

P4 $8115 [13]

3 Litre Sedan/Coupe $6940 [4]

2000/2000TC $2125 [4]

P6B 3500 V8 $6170 [14]

SD1/Vanden Plas $3070 [5]
