One of only 49 left drive examples built from 1960-1962, this aluminum bodied example of the coachbuilders art was first delivered to Dr. George Westgate on 26, May 1960, finished in a very elegant color layout of Medium Grey with matching Blue Grey hides, as it appears today. Dr. Westgate was also the owner of a very elegant Style 7484 H.J. Mulliner Convertible finished to match.
During the late 1980s after capturing the 1987 RROC National Award corresponding to the plaque still on the dashboard, it found its way to the stable of the highly respected UK sales and restoration facility of Peter Fischer who carried out a high quality cosmetic and mechanical review of the automobile before selling it on to a careful individual in Sweden, from whom it was recently acquired. The kilometers per hour speedometer currently in place was required for operation in that country. Its present odometer reading of 97,372 is the equivalent of approximately 58,000 miles, for a total of slightly more than 1,000 miles per year since new.
Correct handbooks and complete tools, the small ones in their special Mulliner box accompany the automobile along with copies of the factory and coachwork records. The original chassis, engine and body have never been separated from each other and there are no collisions or other horror stories in its 55 year history.
If desired, air conditioning can be installed at an additional cost. Although prepared in the same fashion for sake of originality of appearance, the technology available today did not exist at the time of manufacture, hence the systems are much more efficient.

UPDATE: Although never fully restored, this automobile was awarded a Best in Class trophy at the 2016 Boca Raton Concours d Elegance. The Tiffany glass plate shown in the photos will accompany the car to its next home.
