My Rover was earler than a lot of other P6B's in fact it was the first known 
in the maritimes at that time...My father test drove a 2000TC (as close as 
he could get to a 3500S for testing)and decided to order the 3500S .It cost 
$6,100.00 at that time and the US dollar was about at par.
  You probally see a lot of minor differences between like models nd figure 
that someone had altered the car after purchase...but I know for  fact that 
there were a lot of minor differences from car to car even within close 
build dates.
