Body No. 7128.

"I'm in the habit of checking out Rolls Royce websites, just to see what's out there. I wasn't really in the market for a Cloud. Then I spotted this one on the Real Car Company website, and I knew I had to have it.

 

The Real Car Company found the original registration number, and arranged with DVLA to have it restored.

 

They also kindly sent me the photo I sent you.(As shown above here - Ed.)

 

For years it bore the number KGH 760 A."

"I'd hankered after a Rolls Royce for years, but never had the nerve to dip my toe in the water, until I met a man in a pub who arrived in a Silver Shadow. He advised me that you were a long time dead, so go for it whilst you can.

 

A couple of weeks later, I saw the Spirit in a showroom at a silly low price. Work was going to be needed.

 

I joined the RREC and found Hillier Hill in the advertiser. Over time, they've got the car running sweetly.

 

Paintwork a bit tired. Was considering a respray, but I'm still on the lookout for another car, so that's on hold for the time being."
