This is an incredibly original car cared for by Mr Trevor Boyd Maunsell for 48 years. It sold in 1960 for the princely sum of £375. 00
The car has a huge history & provenance amongst the best I have ever seen including a massive bills file & sequential MOT's back to 1960!!
The engine was rebuilt about 18. 00 miles ago by Marque specialists Ristes. & there is a photographic record of this work. After the rebuild the car was painstakingly run in at 30MPH including a trip back to Ristes to torque down the head. which again there is supporting documentation for. Boyd Maunsell feels the engine is still a little "Tight" & will gradually loosen over the next 20K. The car also had a new cylinder block in the late '40s courtesy of the Rolls Royce factory as the original one was deemed to have a defective casting. This was completed free of charge by Rolls Royce. The engine fires immediately & runs sweetly in well oiled silence.
The body on the car is by Offord. A south London coach builder better known for Alvises & Bentleys. who bodied very very few Rolls Royce motorcars.
It is a one off all weather tourer & the hood is simplicity itself to raise or lower. It has roll up windows front & rear & also a rear Auster screen to protect occupants in the back.
The condition of the car is beautifully patinated & quite the opposite of what one finds on freshly over restored models. The car starts instantly & drives beautifully easily holding station in motorway traffic. The open touring arrangements make it an ideal family car for outings & picnics. The car has a motoring trunk fitted to the rear. There are dual trumpet horns up front & a centrally mounted spot lamp. Twin side mounts adorn the running boards.
This is a rare chance to acquire a car in wonderful original order. & of the type that is hard to find as they so rarely come to market.
