Topic: SOLD: 1969 Rover P6B-3500S aka Super Grover - One more price drop

Are you mentally deficient? Do you like crappy British cars? Do you want to own a piece of Lemons history?
Then this is the car for you. The almost Lemons famous Super Grover is going up for sale!

After an IOE win, Class C win and numerous races, Super Grover is being retired. The team wants to focus its
energies on a new build, and we don't have the space to keep her. Our idiocy is your gain! Let the legacy
continue!

Details:
Super Grover is a 1969 Rover P6-3500
Engine: The "infamous" Rover v8, in our case, the 4.0L V8 from a 1996 Land Rover Discovery with an Isky cam and
converted to use a Holley Carb.
Transmission: Custom adapter plate mounts the Rover v8 to a GM  World Class T5.
Corbeau seat
G-Force belts
Two sets of rims
Wilwood front calipers (custom brackets) on Chevy Astrovan rotors
Southwest Speed pedal system with 3 "master" cylinders, bias bar and
pedal adjustment for improved brake feel.
Aftermarket Aluminum radiator
Dual Electric fans
Electronic ignition conversion - no points
Electric fuel pump
upgraded wheel studs
Various spare parts

The bad:
Oil pressure gauge isn't working but the big idiot light still works
Gas gauge doesn't work either.
Interior wiring needs a little clean up

The car is location in Beacon, NY, We are asking $1500.00 for the car.

You can contact me via forum mail and I can pass along my number/personal email or call Manny  845 742 7235

Here are some images of the car.

Jalopnik is doing a video on this car.

What price would someone pay for this?.....
It will be dismantled and junked if we can't sell it.....A true shame for the first and only p6 Rover that has Raced and class won in Lemons.

Make a reasonable offer....

Bring this back to the top. The car is still for sale. We fixed the transmission today. We've reduced the price. Lets get this sold, we have another potential IOE car and the money would help offset the cost of the new build.

I love any sales pitch that starts “are you mentally deficient”?  A lot of cars should be marketed this way.

Pittsburgh is over and we really want to get rid of this car and spend the money on the other cars..New, lower price of $1500.00. If no one buys it, we are just going to strip it for parts. It's taking up space and we can use the cash

Grover is no longer available, at least not from us. He made an appearance at NJMP when the TR8 blew an engine. They put her out on the track for a few laps and the proceeded to try and swap over the engine . The roller is in the possession of the TR-8 team

They could've also run to Home Depot and grabbed a fresh sheet of Lexan, but hindsight is 20/20. I am a little disappointed they couldn't run longer. I don't recall the windshield being that bad when we last raced it but it's also not surprising given that it's been sitting outside for  almost a year. The car actually started right up for them when they picked it up. They were able to drive it right up on the trailer. and it ran a few laps.

The original plan was to run it for a few laps and swap over the engine into the TR-8. The engines are the same and it would bolt up to their bell housing so they could use their transmission, drive shaft, etc.

They couldn't get the transmission to mate with the engine.  There was one difference and that was the pilot bearings were just slightly different between what was installed in the Rover compared to the TR-8. Once they figured that out, they pulled the one from their engine and it still wouldn't line up for some reason and called it.
