Rover 2000 P6 ‘Works’ Rally Car
We are very proud to offer this superb Rover for sale.
1KUE is the registration of arguably the most significant surviving Rover cars of all time. The only survivor of the works entered rally cars from 1965, 1KUE remains a highly competitive rally car today.
Originally built for the 1965 season 1KUE retired from the Acropolis Rally of that year before finishing 16th on the Alpine Rally and 17th on the RAC Rally in November of 65. Entered by the British Broadcasting Corporation for the January 1965 Monte Carlo Rally it retired over the time limit. The history file details all these events
Sold into private hands and re registered JXC226C the Rover went on to be a class winning and event winning car in the hands of Brian Terry before being sold to Sandy Forbes for the Texaco London Rally
Noted enthusiast and expert Bob Gardner took ownership of the car in ’88 and restored the car reuniting it with registration 1KUE in the process.
Purchased by well known rally competitor David Roxburgh in February 1997 and prepared for endurance rallying again. 1KUE has had a highly successful recent competitive career competing all over Europe with many class wins and places and some highly creditable overall finishes.
Sold driving beautifully and on the button with all the required accreditation and a simply enormous history file including the bough log book and many magazine articles on the car. 1KUE represents the chance to receive an entry into pretty much any rally and having received the entry this car can win. We are proud to offer this car the second ‘works’ car and third significant Rover we have offered in the last year. You will not find better history for this money anywhere.
