I am a long retired classic car enthusiast and collector. and recently spent some months touring the Americas looking for good. original British classics.

This is one from a private collection in Connecticut. an original right-hand drive. matching numbers. dignified and stylish lady that certainly deserved repatriation to her homeland. The R type was the successor to the Mark V1. nbsp;they are as the same chassis. 4. 6 litre engine and body as the Rolls Royce Silver Dawn except they have the benefit of twin carbs. lifting the power to a creditable 130hp.

I have had the car shipped to classic car restoration specialists ADR Engineering in Wokingham. Berkshire. where she is currently being fully checked over. serviced and MoT'd.   (http://www. adr-engineering. co. uk/)  She can be inspected there or the proprietor of ADR. Adrian Daniels. can be contacted on 0118 978 2980 for independent information on the car. They can also organise delivery at buyers cost.

She will be supplied with a new MoT and ready for registration here - which I am quite happy to do for the next owner if required. All taxes have been paid.  The chassis number is B190TN should anyone want to do some research.

A brief description of the condition is as follows.

The body and paintwork are generally very good. some signs of ageing of the paintwork inside the door shuts is visible. very slight bubbling on the lower edge of one rear door. otherwise excellent but not immaculate. At some time in the past she has been fitted with a Rolls Royce radiator. the chromework is generally excellent bar some pitting and very slight damage on the back bumper. The interior is outstanding in every respect. beautiful red hide upholstery. great woodwork. headlining and carpets. Mechanically she is spot on. fires up immediately. no smoke. and runs smoothly and quietly. The last owner took her out regularly for exercise and said what a joy to drive she is.  The tyres are excellent including the spare. The car even comes with the original owner's handbook.

On Hagerty's extremely useful and well-researched condition and value scale she falls between 'good' at £24. 00 and 'excellent' at £35. 00 See http://apps. hagerty. com/ukvaluation/index.   My reserve is below those figures.

Feel free to call me on 07882 229558 if you have any queries. Please only serious bidders. if you have less than 10 stars call me first. and I must reserve the right to sell elsewhere. An immediate 10% deposit will be required.
