Rover P5 (3 Litre) and P5B (3.5 Litre) Library

On these pages you’ll find scans of period brochures and magazine articles beautifully ordered on a timeline, as well as scans of the best Rover photography and illustrations from Rover’s brochures of the period. There are also Newspaper articles that relate to Rover from the period, scans of period advertisements, photographs I’ve taken of my car, and videos related to the Rover P5, P5B and Britain in the 1950’s and 1960’s. If you know of anything that’s missing, please get in touch.

Table of Rover P5 and Rover P5B Period Magazine Articles

Below you’ll find a table that lists every Rover P5 and P5B magazine article published during the production lifetime of the cars. I don’t track articles after 1973, as I want this site to concentrate on the period when the cars were in production.

I own many of these magazines and will scan the articles and add them to the timeline as time allows. If you find any errors or omissions, or wish to submit scans or donate / sell something you think others might find interesting, please get in touch.
