Description

- Restored Hispano Suiza-style special featured in the 1983 film 'Sahara'

- Rolls Royce 20/25 chassis and running gear

- 4-litre Rolls Royce FB 60 engine with automatic gearbox

This Hispano Suiza-style special was created for and featured alongside Sir John Mills and Brooke Shields in the 1983 film Sahara. Based on a Rolls Royce 20/25 chassis and running gear, it is powered by a 4-litre Rolls Royce FB 60 engine with automatic gearbox. Following the film it was kept in long term dry storage in a private collection until it was purchased by the vendor who commenced an extensive two year restoration which included: body stripped, chassis and axles cleaned, prepared and refinished; aluminium body prepared and refinished in original colour; internal upholstery, door card, internal trim and carpets renewed; rear brakes renewed with machined and resurfaced brake drums, servo assisted braking system; new wheel bearings to rear axle; bespoke stainless steel exhaust with large bore sport silencer; new radiator with integral automatic box cooling capability; new aluminium petrol tank with original H. S. Sports filler; Brooklands style windscreens and side step. A real head turner on the road, we understand only a small amount of work to the instrumentation remains to be done. Offered with Swansea V5 and the original film luggage carrier.
