Default Rover 3.5 litre p5b

They are one of my favourite cars - Rovers. In fact, I still own several of them,including a 3 litre 4 speed manual with overdrive, celebrating its 50th birthday. I also have a 1966 Mark III, and I am restoring a 1965 Mark IIC for a friend of mine. Magnificent cars, not a Rolls Royce, but not all that far removed in quality and furnishings.

Is there anything equivalent to this article on the Shadow 11, which is probably the nearest Rolls Royce product to the 6.9?

I had the opportunity for an extended drive of a Rover P5 3500 at the RROCA Drive and Be Driven Day and it was a nice vehicle to drive. Reasonably powerful, smooth, comfortable and handled well. In short, a most attractive vehicle and perhaps a little more refined than the Benz products of the same era.
Regards,
Brian

And a Spirit II - but without the extra wood panelling that mine has - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ66NHbtpTc
