THIS VERY SPECIAL ROLLS ROYCE SPEEDSTER STANDS ABOVE ALL  OF THE 43 PROPERLY BUILT SPECIALS CONSTRUCTED BY DERRY MALLALIEU ENGINEERING OF AYLESBURY ENGLAND. THIS IS THE ONLY MALLALIEU OF ALL OF THE VARIOUS DESIGNS THAT WAS EVER CONSTRUCTED ON A SILVER DAWN CHASSIS ( LSDB 120 ) BY SPECIAL ORDER OF THE AMERICAN DISTRIBUTER TO BE GIVEN TO HIS WIFE ON COMPLETION. IT SPORTS A ALUMINUM BODY BUILT BY WILKINSON OF DERBY . NGLAND. ITH THE UNDERSIDES OF THE FENDERS SPRAYED IN FIBERGLASS MAT TO PREVENT STONE DAMAGE.  BY THE END OF PRODUCTION IN 1979. OMPLETED CARS WERE COSTING 45 THOUSAND ENGLISH POUNDS. HICH WAS VIRTUALLY THE SAME AS A BRAND NEW BENTLEY SALOON BY THE FACTORY. ALTOGETHER OVER 400 MK V1 CARS HAVE BEEN REBODIED AND CONVERTED TO SPORTS SPECIFICATION BY VARIOUS BRITISH COMPANIES. UT BY FAR AND ABOVE . MALLALIEU ENGINEERING IS ACKNOWLEDGED AS THE PREMIER BUILDER . THE BARE CHASSIS WAS COMPLETELY REMANUFACTURED USING ONLY ORIGINAL ROLLS ROYCE PARTS TO ITS NEW SPORTS CONFIGURATION AND THEN THE ALL ALLOY BODY WAS FITTED. THIS VERY SPECIAL AUTOMOBILE WAS BEING BUILT AS A GIFT FROM THE AMERICAN DISTRIBUTER IN LA TO BE GIVEN TO HIS WIFE . BUILT WITH VERY SPECIAL FEATURES . AIR CONDITIONING . ROLL UP WINDOWS . LHD . CENTER FLOOR SHIFT . 6 WAY ELECTRIC DRIVERS SEAT . FITTED REAR CONTINENTAL WHEEL . FULL HYDRAULIC CLUTCH AND BREAKING SYSTEM . REMOVABLE CARSON TOP . AND OF COURSE A COMPLETE CONNOLLY INTERIOR WITH MATCHING WOOL CARPET.   WITH ABOUT 5% OF THE BUILD TO BE COMPLETED THE GENTLEMANS WIFE PASSED AND THE PROJECT WAS PUT TO THE SIDE AND THERE IT SAT UNTIL IT WAS ACQUIRED BY ME IN 2010. DURING THE TIME IT LANGUISHED COVERED WITH DUST AND NEGLECT IN THE WAREHOUSE IN DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES . ANY VERY EXPENSIVE PARTS WERE TAKEN AS SOUVENIRS . HUBCAPS . FLYING LADY . HEADLIGHTS . DOOR HANDLES . ARDWARE. TC. TC. TC.   LSDB 120 HAS NOW BEEN COMPLETLY RESTORED TO ITS FULL GLORY PLUS. COMPLETE WIRING . RUBBER PARTS . EVERYTHING RENEWED WITH ALL MISSING PARTS REPLACED WITH VERY EXPENSIVE ORIGINAL UPGRADES AND ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT COMPLEMENT THE OVERALL DESIGN.  THE PAINT IS ORIGINAL AND IS A BEAUTIFUL BRITISH RACING GREEN. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE ROLLS ROYCE POST WAR SPECIAL AND HAS A TOTAL OF LESS THAN 200 TESTING MILES SINCE BEING BUILT IN THE LATE 1970s.                                                                                            YOU WILL NEVER SEE YOURSELF COMING  . BUT YOU WILL BE SEEN BY ALL.
