The Rover P5B is a beautiful car, it's not surprising government and royalty used this car as a means of transportation.

This car is looking like horse car as it displays its short eyed bumpers.

Here's one I saw at a car show a couple of years ago. Just a little bit different from your average everyday Rover....

^^^ Do you remember if the conversion was done in Australia or the UK?

Neat idea, but the windshield header looks unpleasantly clunky... usually the killer is top fit, though folded it seems neatly packaged.

I took the photo because the car looked interesting and unusual. I remember being curious about that myself at the time but I didn't ask. I just had a look now and found this reference to it:

The Rover P5 was introduced in 1959 and was reasoned as the unfruitful man's Bentley, providing full Nation expensiveness at a relative low soprano. It was also the premier Rover with a unitary chassis. Over the geezerhood the car remained virtually unchanged until replaced by the P5B pattern in 1967. Exclusive advanced discs replaced the drums most 3 months after creation started, spell country guidance became standard in 1960. Initially the 3 litre engine gave 117 BHP, but towards the end 136 BHP was modular.
