Description

Today’s example is particularly special as it is one of the few left hand drive examples ever produced, and being in what can only be described as extraordinarily fine original condition, such as would seem to go a very long way to supporting the very low recorded odometer reading of 28,247 km. Coachwork is finished in classic Embassy Black with a magnificent original cream leather interior with all the normal restrained elegant luxury fittings.

Potential purchasers will find the cars history file repays inspection as among the documentation is a letter from the ‘Joint Services Liason Organisation’ which suggests some form of diplomatic use in Germany during which the car was used by various notables including Mrs Thatcher, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duchess of Gloucester.

This is a rare and splendid example, of one of the greatest English formal cars of its era, still with the majority of its operational life ahead of it.

Dieses spezielle Stück ist eines der wenigen erbauten Autos seiner Art mit Linkssteuerung, und in einem außerordentlich feinem Zustand, mit einer sehr niedrigen Kilometerzahl von 28.247 km. Die Karosserie ist in klassischem Embassy Schwarz mit einem großartigen und luxuriösen cremefarbenen Lederinterieur.
Der Geschichtsakte des Autos ist einem Schreiben des “Joint Services Liason Organisation” zu entnehmen, dass das Auto für den diplomatischen Gebrauch in Deutschland genutzt wurde und dort diversen Staatspersonen gedient hat, wie z.B. Mrs. Thatcher, den Prinz von Wales, der Herzog von Edinburgh und der Herzogin von Gloucester.
Dies ist ein seltenes und herrliches Beispiel, von einem der größten englischen Autos seines Zeitalters.
