1948 Rover P3 75 Saloon – Hot Rod
Finished in 1999 this 1948 Rover 75 P3 Saloon has attended various shows over the years and won Best in Show at Gary’s Picnic in 1999 and was featured in Custom Car magazine in its debut year.
The original chassis was modified to accept a Jag IRS power lock axle, and a Pop Browns IFS set up utilizing Jag wishbones with coil over shock absorbers and a narrowed Fiesta steering rack.
A rebuilt Rover 3500cc V8 in a mild state of tune was fitted with an overhauled Borg Warner 65 automatic transmission and modified jaguar propshaft.
Many subtle changes were carried out to the bodywork including banding the inner and outer wheel arches, raising the boot floor to accommodate the axle and relocating the fuel tank inside the boot.
The vehicle is detailed throughout with many brackets, bumpers, dash, steering column and under floor areas to name but a few made in polished stainless steel.
