Oxford Diecast 76RP006 Rover P6 Corsica Blue - 1:76 Scale
Registered RPC 373L from 1972/73, 1:76 scale Oxford model of the Rover P6 in an eye-catching royal blue with masked black roof. The interior is also black. Exterior trim is extensively silver except for the black radiator and the finely detailed vertical black bars on the otherwise chrome bumpers. The P6, an executive class 4-door saloon, was produced between 1963 and 1977, first by Rover (1963-1967), then Leyland Motors (1967-68) and finally by British Leyland (1968-1977). It was voted European Car of the Year in 1964, at a time when the vehicle was being manufactured by British Leyland at their Solihull Works. It came with a four-speed manual gearbox or with a 3-speed automatic transmission on the higher power variants. It was considered ahead of its time in some respects, with unique safety and design features, one being that it carried the battery in the boot! The last Rover P6 rolled off the production line in March 1977, succeeded by the Rover SD 1.
