Rudiger is correct,3500S had a 4speed, I believe it was a slightly
improved2000 TC unit, but still too weak. The US(Federal) 3500S came out
first, in 1970, and all had a BW Model 35, similar to Volvo, Rover 2000,
early Daimler 250 Sedan...I am curious-How many Federal 3500S were built-
Were all imported to the US? I have heard that the 1980 Rover3500(Federal
SD1) sold  so poorly, after 2500 had been imported, that  about 300  of
those were quietly shipped to France.A US 3500S would be easy to spot; they
had 3 scoops on the bonnet.And of course every option Rover had was
standard(Except AC, which was an option)the best solution is to fit an SD1 5
speed. I have a red one in Ft Lauderdale, and there was a fine white one
converted, on the West Coast of Florida, about 10 years ago. James Dean.
