Description
 
Chassis number 12LW Registration number R3701 Originally ordered by sold to Lord Rocksavage at 12 Kensington Palace Gardens. The car is fitted with a magnificent rakish 1908 Franklin 2 seater body which is the epitome of sporting motoring. The cockpit is comfortable spacious with both gear lever handbrake being located outside the body. The bonnet is continental style with wide louvres for enhanced cooling. Importantly the car was specified as a high speed Alpine Eagle chassis with a high geared rear axle and high compression engine. The Rolls Royce build sheets specify that particular attention was to be given to quick acceleration. Springs to be set on the strong side for fast driving. An Elliot speedometer was also specified which resides in the dash to this day. Driving the car, once can quickly see that Messers Rolls Royce fulfilled their goals as it accelerates strongly wafts up hills with no effort at all. The coachwork is finished in black with hand applied red coach lines; the paint being in excellent condition. To the interior is burgundy button style leather seating fitted in 2001 which has had sufficient time to build up a perfect mild patina of use. The hood in Black Mohair is easy to erect unusually the car looks as good with the hood up as it does with it down. The body is strictly two seats only. To the rear is a lovely luggage trunk that hinges up to reveal a commodious storage space underneath which will accommodate large suitcases etc for touring. All brightwork is lovely with a lot of re-nickeling having been undertaken. C.A.V. Lamps are mounted to the front complimented by similar scuttle mounted spot lamps. De rigueur divers helmet lamps adorn the rear. A lucas brass no 40 oil can sits under the bonnet as does a syringe oiler. The car is now with us in the UK at our showrooms.
