This stunning early Rolls Royce MPW 2 door was supplied new by H.R Owen Ltd to the Chairman of Mining Supplies Ltd in South Yorkshire. The first owner was known for revolutionising mining methods and successfully grew his Company employing 6500 people. He was also involved in some controversial industrial relations during the 1970's and 1980's and his affairs were even debated in Parliament. His Rolls Royce was delivered on the 22nd August 1969 with full refrigeration, fog lamps and lap and diagonal safety belts to each front seat.
The Rolls Royce has been with its last owner in Lincolnshire since 2012 and over £4,500 was spent improving the car. We have receipts for lubrication work, a full service to include ignition items and a brake service, a new choke pipe, Magnecor HT leads, new sound deadening felt, new Wilton carpets and a new stainless steel exhaust system at the cost of £1,450 alone. The Rolls Royce has been driven to us twice from Lincolnshire and is in very strong mechanical order. Over the past few months the Rolls Royce has had over £12,000 spent on cosmetic work to include a bare metal re-paint in Rolls Royce Midnight Blue. All bright work, windows and frames, door handles were removed and the car taken back to bare metal. Window frames, door handles and rear bumper were re-chromed, the wheels re-painted and the engine bay detailed. The Rolls Royce was fitted with a brand new set of tyres and the interior stripped out, cleaned, treated and re-coloured and a brand new wool headlining fitted. All electrics were checked and window motors and switches re-furbished, seat motors removed and re-furbished and the car fully serviced.
As a result of the recent work the Rolls Royce MPW presents beautifully with an outstanding glass paint finish. The paintwork is stunning, the body panels beautiful and straight and the chrome work lovely. The car is very impressive and the interior now stunning with a brand new headlining and lovely original seats and door cards that have been renovated. The carpets have been recently replaced, the woodwork is excellent and since 2012 the car has had in excess of £16,500 spent taking it to a very high standard. The Rolls Royce is truly outstanding to drive and offers luxury, superb performance and reliability. The car handles wonderfully; the engine and gearbox are super quiet as expected and the car sails along gracefully. The car is ideal for regular use, long distance touring and is an outstanding driving car.
