Rover P3 75 Green RVr   (1949)

In 1948 Rover replaced its 14hp and 16hp models with the Rover 60 and 75 P3 series. The new models looked similar to the pre-war cars and came with a choice of either four light "Sports Saloon" or six light "saloon" bodies. Standard equipment included the traditional Rover "Freewheel" gearbox, coil-spring independent front suspension and a hydro-mechanical brake servo.

The six cylinder engine used in the 75 was of the overhead inlet, side exhaust type and had a capacity of 2103cc. The fuel system used an electric pump for its feed from the petrol tank, quite a novel device in 1948!. Production of the P3 finished in 1949 when it was replaced by the new P4 series.
