Honestly reviewed and personally selected Rover P5 and P5B items. Buying here helps support this site...

Welcome to the shop. A small number of items for anyone interested in the Rover P5 or P5B. Each is clearly labelled and honestly reviewed or discussed to help you make an informed decision. We won’t stuff this page with rubbish, but provide a few items that we’re proud to offer and mirror some of the the qualities of the Rover P5 itself.

When you buy from here you’re helping keep this site alive. Whilst this site is a hobby not a business, your support really helps with the costs of running a website.

We’re constantly updating what we offer, so please check back occasionally.

 

Labels & Stickers:

Now available, our own range of carefully reproduced and professionally printed factory labels and stickers for the Rover P5 and P5B. These are waterproof and printed using UV-resistant inks on 100 micron waterproof vinyl, laminated to make them even tougher. They use a hi-tac adhesive designed to stick to low energy surfaces as found on cars, and will resist oil and heat really well (important for labels in an engine bay). We have these printed in the UK to our own design.

Images shown here are low-resolution with a ‘Preview’ watermark. The labels we ship are pin-sharp and obviously don’t have the watermark!

Free Labels…

During production Rover were quite inconsistent in the labels they applied on the P5 and P5B, so there may be labels or variations of labels that we are not aware of. If you have an original sticker or label that Rover used on the P5 or P5B that you’d like to have reproduced but we don’t offer, we’re always looking to add to the range we offer. If we agree, you will benefit from getting a free label!

All we need is a decent photo of the sticker / label (at least so we can see the colours and read the text), together with its dimensions (as accurately as possible), and we will arrange to reproduce it. You’ll receive a free copy, and we will offer the sticker to the community. Get in touch if this is something you’re interested in.

 

 

Clothing:

Coming soon. We found a company based in the former mill town of Blackburn, Lancashire, to create a small selection of modern but ‘grown-up’ items of clothing for anyone interested in the Rover P5 and P5B.

These items are subtly embroidered with the RoverP5.com Coupe or Saloon silhouette and the words “Rover P5 & P5B”, in period-correct Gill Sans typeface, as used by Rover in P5 and P5B literature. Most items are available in a range of colours.

From a very warm and practical woolly hat, to a 100% organic cotton polo shirt, you can look good and support British manufacturing.

Review:

There aren’t many books dedicated to an engine, but James Taylor’s ‘Rover V8’ is one such example. That this book exists is proof of the importance and influence the Rover V8 engine exerted... [read more...]

Review:

You may have read our review of the Rover 3 & 3.5 Litre Workshop Manual Saloon and Coupe. The Parts Catalogue reviewed here is the perfect complement to that, fixing a number of issues along the way. Whilst not as vital as a good Workshop Manual, I have been really surprised just how useful this Parts Catalogue has been. [read more...]

Classic British Car Electrical Systems

(Check Price on Amazon Here)

Review:

This is undoubtedly the best book I've found on understanding the Rover P5 and P5B electrical system. Although it covers most British classic cars, the components Rover used were often bought-in from Lucas, and this book covers many of those same items. The book builds-up knowledge from the basics through to more complex topics, so it is useful for beginners and experts alike.

At the time of writing (August 2019), this book only seems to be available as a Kindle download - the printed version is out of print. However, I recommend you still buy a copy, as you can use it with the Kindle app on any smartphone or computer. Obviously you don't get a printed copy, but this book is so useful it's worth it. Alternatively there are some ridiculously priced second-hand copies available elsewhere.
