Has had a respray about 2 years ago although it looks OK. There is slight bubbling to the bottom off the rear doors.
Interior is original, although sun visors are missing.
Good oil pressure. Has had a new radiator and stays cool.
Changes up and down ok.
Everything seems in order there and works.
Believed to have been bought new by Mr Reginald Kray and there are documents suggesting this. The car has been off the radar for at least 38 years, as tax was due when computerised tax systems were put in place (1st January 1980). I have a screenshot of this before I taxed the car last year. Also, I have the car's handbook and warranty card signed by Mr Kray. An account by Barbara Windsor of an evening in 1963. "It promises to be a right royal East End night out. Princess Margaret is expected. There's pie and mash on the menu at Stepney Town Hall for the slap-up post-premiere dinner. And the East End's favourite gangsters, the Krays, are taking care of the after-hours festivities. "I arrived in a Roller with my first husband, Ronnie Knight," recalls Windsor. "There were thousands of people lining the Mile End Road, cheering and waving flags. Evidently, Ronnie and Reggie had turned them all out of their houses, saying, 'Let's welcome our little lady. Let's show royalty how we are.' "The cream of the British film world was there - Stanley Baker and Roger Moore stayed for dinner. Then we had a drink at the Krays' club, The Kentucky, across the road from the cinema. We all ended up at Esmeralda's, Ronnie and Reggie's West End club. It was great." There was only one problem. Royalty didn't show up. Which was a shame, because Ronnie and Reggie would no doubt have treated Princess Margaret right, and she would probably have enjoyed a chorus of Any Old Iron with "Mad" Frankie Fraser."
