Post by Paul - P5B Coupe on Mar 27, 2013 6:10:01 GMT
I have a question re P5B coach lines. By way of background, I sold a MG to a chap here in Canberra to-day. Whilst levaluating the MG, he noticed my 1971 P5B and asked to look at it. Upon looking at the car, he told me that the coach lines along the edge of the roof and beneath the stainless door trims was not original to the P5B. I asked him how he knew, as to the best of my knowledge the coach lines were applied by the Rover company. He said that he was employed by Rover as an engineer when the P5B was being developed and that the cars had no coach lines. I didn't argue the point, but am thinking that maybe it was just the pre-production P5Bs that didn;t have coach lines?

Thank you for that background information John - my car is a 1971 coupe, so the roof coachline is as it should be. I think that Big Kev was right when he suggested that the engineer (I referred to) probably had experience with the earlier 3 litre cars as opposed to the P5Bs. Case closed from my point of view.
