Classic Car Auctions says:

Lovely old Rolls, always driven slowly on very short trips...

  • Smartly presented in Funeral Black over Collection Silver
  • Interior specially adapted to carry wooden boxes and flower arrangements
  • Despatched from the fleet of a large PLC. We have checked the history file and there are no 'Skeletons in the cupboard'
  • The front wings and light clusters were updated to pair with their two Phantom limousines
  • Substantial resurrection, mechanical and service works carried out by Shadow Vehicle Services of Leeds (Bills for £57,000)
  • A great opportunity to convert to a Cloud Convertible, mobile bar, unusual camper van or addition to current funeral fleet
  • You shouldn't take this Rolls lying down, that would be a grave mistake
