This Rover 3500 V8 (1972) in perfect condition is polished and always roadworthy, but 'sleeps' most of the time in Henk Dontje's garage.

The stylish lines, the narrow front with lots of chrome, the double headlights and elegant grille make it a stylish automobile.
The Rover 18 V3500 (with a lot of power due to its powerful engine) has been in the family's possession for almost 8 years. This family car looks sporty. Of course, the spare wheel that is mounted on the rear is also striking. And that is also practical, because it provides extra luggage space.
When you start talking about Henk's beautiful Rover 3500 V8, he immediately becomes enthusiastic and can philosophize about it for hours. You can also see that infectious enthusiasm in his 'man cave' where a lot of special Rover models (1/43) have been collected. For him, everything that has to do with Rover is not directly a symbol of wealth but a source of pleasure. And we, as classic lovers, really like that.
