client profile: Colin’s “story of Nicholas”

Name: Colin Moss
State:  Queensland
Insured by Ryno since:  2018
Insured vehicle:  1970 Rover P6 2000TC

Colin Mosses’ passion for British cars, particularly the Rover, has set him on a journey that led him to this rare classic. Featured here with him is Nicholas, his beloved P6.

Rovers have made a mark in Colin’s life since his childhood years in the UK. The Rover P6 patrol car back then left a lasting impression on him and was the igniting spark of his unwavering ambition to one day own a P6 himself. The Mosses’ first P6 was an incredibly rare and highly sought after 1973 Rover 3500S that they’ve affectionately named Miss Almond. While they weren’t actively looking for another classic, the 2000TC was a hard car to pass up, mainly when it was in near perfect condition and no rust in sight.

Vastly underrated and reasonably rare, the 2000TC won the hearts of Colin and Karen, and a week after the viewing they brought it home and gave it a new name; Nicholas. Though he was well preserved, the duo decided some upgrades and modifications would add to his charm. Four period Lucas spotlights were sourced, restored, and fitted along with period Lucas light covers. Rear-facing Lucas reversing light was mounted, conforming to the Monte Carlo Rally specs of the late 60s and early 70s. The interior was fitted with a “Brent” rally trip computer, timing clock, and a 1970s two-way CB radio. Colin also had the bonnet restored and repainted to satin black as per the Rover Works Rally cars of the day.
