That Zephyr is by Abbotts of Farnham, who also created the two Jensen 541 convertibles.

I always thought the MK3 Zephyr looked better as an estate, strangely they used the same back window as the saloon.

Very nice Zephyr, looks just right for the period, except for the dreadful wheels - can't you get original steel ones any more?

My first trip to Cornwall was in the back of a similar Zephyr. It was 1968 before the road improvements and despite leaving at midnight it took 11 hours in the middle of the holiday season! Luckily there was enough room to stretch out in the back.
I saw this today............

Now, all I know is that this is an early Rolls Royce.

Seen on the Front at Helensburgh this afternoon. The Firth of Clyde and the entrance to Gare Loch in the background along with the monument to Henry Bell who was the engineer that introduced the first successful passenger steamboat service in Europe.

That'll be a 1920's Rolls Royce 20 HP, open tourer, with body probably by one of the more common coach builders with a 3.1 straight six. Nice to see it out and about.

Drove home today my 1968 BMW 2000cs. Not much power but a head turner too.

Stunning Karan, that shape is superb with the slim pillars, one of the few BM's I would own, but would have to be 3.0 CSi guise for me, but will never happen unless I win the Lottery.
