This P6B belongs to Taff Jordan in Auckland, New Zealand. It's a daily driver.

She was first registered in Oct 1974 and I am the 11th owner although that does include some dealers. She has done 21618 kms and I've owned her since 300101 which was coincidentally a day after my fiftieth birthday.
I have always wanted one as my father bought a brand new 2000TC in 1969 in Wales.
I believe mine was assembled here in NZ but have yet to have that confirmed but the aerial is set in the back wing whereas in Britain they were normally placed on the roof. She seems to have very little tin worm (rust) but who knows what is hidden. Mechanically she is very good and, as the saying goes,"will pass anything except a petrol station".
As for me I am a lot less interesting, born and bred in Wales I came here in 1983 . . . . now I know why . . . . to find a decent Rover.
