888 LOR – 1953
This was the Rolls-Royce show car at The Earls Court Motor Show of 1953 where it was purchased by Geraldo, famous orchestra leader of the time. It remained with the Geraldo family until our acquisition in 1995 when it had covered a mere 35,000 miles! The coachwork has been elegantly designed and finished by Hoopers who have been coachbuilders for the Royal Family since 1945. Ivory body with sweeping black wings which reach right to the rear of the car, this shape making the car particularly photogenic, especially with its whitewall tyres. Incredible front radiator grill topped with a kneeling Spirit of Ecstasy. Large chrome headlights complete the classic appearance. A wide contra opening door and inside step allows effortless access to the roomy interior which has parchment leather with matching lamb’s wool carpeting and exquisite walnut woodwork including a cocktail cabinet.
Matching Ivory and Black Wedding Cars.
For the perfect complimentary car we have the Ivory Baronesses I-VIII which are magnificent seven seat Daimler Limousines. Any of these cars make an ideal matching pair to get the bride to the church in the Rolls Royce and the Groom and family in the luxury of the Daimler.
