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. ENGLAND . ITH THE UNDERSIDES OF THE FENDERS SPRAYED IN FIBERGLASS MAT TO PREVENT STONE DAMAGE.
BY THE END OF PRODUCTION IN 1979. COMPLETED CARS WERE COSTING 45 THOUSAND ENGLISH POUNDS. HICH WAS VIRTUALLY THE SAME AS A BRAND NEW BENTLEY SALOON FROM THE FACTORY. ALTOGETHER OVER 400 MK  V1 CARS HAVE BEEN REBODIED AND CONVERTED TO SPORT 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 AS A GIFT BUILT WITH VERY SPECIAL FEATURES . AIR CONDITIONING . ROLL UP WINDOWS.

ND OF COURSE A COMPLETE BISCUIT CONNOLLY  LEATHER INTERIOR WITH MATCHING WOOL CARPET.
WITH ABOUT 5% OF THE BUILD TO BE COMPLETED THE GENTLEMAN'S 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 BY DUST AND NEGLECT IN THE WAREHOUSE IN DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES MANY VERY EXPENSIVE PARTS WERE TAKEN AS SOUVENIRS. UBCAPS. LYING LADY. ARDWARE. EADLIGHTS. ETC. TC. TC. br>LSDB 120 HAS BEEN COMPLETELY RESTORED TO ITS FULL GLORY. COMPLETE WIRING. RUBBER PARTS . VERYTHING 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 1970s.
YOU WILL NEVER SEE YOURSELF COMING. BUT YOU WILL BE SEEN BY ALL.
