The very handsome coachwork design was by John Polwhele Blatchley and the car used the standard Rolls-Royce V8, 6230cc engine with an aluminium-silicon alloy block and aluminium cylinder heads with cast iron wet cylinder liners mated to a four-speed 'Hydramatic' transmission from General Motors. </p><div>Chassis CRH 2988 is a two-door FHC with the body built by H.J. Mulliner Park Ward smartly finished in Exeter Blue with grey hide, light grey Wilton carpets and a lovely 'Chippendale' wooden dashboard. It was delivered new to St. Helier, Jersey in Sept 1967 where it resided until 1976 when it was purchased by Air Vice-Marshall E.L.Colbeck-Welch. He enjoyed the car until 2003 when it left these shores bound for Washington, USA, before eventually returning to the UK in 2011.</div><p>The car is accompanied by a considerable history file with paperwork and invoices for regular maintenance and also copies of the original Rolls-Royce build sheets from 1967. The original handbooks are also present and the indicated mileage is just over 70,000 which looks credible with the vehicle's overall condition.</p><p>This is an honest example of these delightful cars and remains very original car throughout, even boasting its original radio and unused toolkit!</p><p>Genuine 1960's elegance for a reasonable guide price.</p><p> </p>
