1969 Rover 2000TC

The Rover P6 series was produced from 1963 to 1977 in Solihull, West Midlands, England. These saloon cars were named 2000, 2200, or 3500 depending on the engine displacement size. Introduced in October of 1963, just before the Earls Court Motor Show, the vehicle was marketed first as the Rover 2000 and served as a replacement for the P4 it replaced. The P5 was sold alongside the P6 until 1973.

The 2000 featured a unibody design with non-stressed panels bolted to a unit frame. Disc brakes were at all four corners, a deDion tube suspension setup was at the rear, and a fully synchromesh transmission was standard.

Instead of the previous F-head engine, Rover used an overhead-cam four unit. The original 2000 sedan displaced 1978cc and offered 90 horsepower. The 2000TC, introduced in 1966, received a compression boost and twin carburetors which raised horsepower to 124 bhp.

Safety features included an 'Icealert' which detected road ice. Another innovative features was the prism of glass on the top of the front side lights, allowing the driver to see the front corner of the car in low light conditions.
