From the pics it looks a nice car I certainly wouldnt be put off by lack of jacking points, there are a lot of rovers out there WITH jacking points which I wouldn't jack one up by. For under 10k it would be worth a look
I'd luv you if you were the colour of a baboons ass
It's always difficult to tell from photos, particularly lower resolution ones; it clearly isn't original and/or unrestored. The interior looks fairly good, although I'm not sure whether the driver's seat has split or whether it's reflections in the picture. The MOT history would certainly indicate the need for a close investigation.
As I saw many poor/rusty P5/P5Bs even in the '70s, the passing of a further 40 years is unlikely to have improved the situation.
Not related to this car, but I do find some adverts amusing; quite how MOT certificates going back to, say, 2004, confirming 'genuine mileage' of a 1965 car always amuse me. It would be 39 years old before records begin! Likewise, a couple of service stamps for the first 2 years don't really mean much on a 50-year old car. With old cars it's very much down to what you can see and any supporting paperwork. The fact that some 'celebrity' (whatever that means) actor once drove a similar car doesn't really mean much to me

Cant tell anything from pictures!! I fitted out a white coupe shell which had been done by a "so called body expert" a few years ago for a friend, it looked great until you got stuck into it plated over rust everywhere 2 years later the rust came through everywhere
