1958 Rolls-Royce SGE204

Engine SE352, Mileage 97,148 miles, believed to be original (approx 1,500 miles per year)

We purchased this car in March of 1992, and have enjoyed it for club events, trips, car shows, and the occasional special times of some of our friends and families.

The car was originally delivered to Commander Newman Eyre of Romford, England, and was professionally restored by the Clarendon Carriage Company of London, where the colour was changed from the original Sand/Sable to Georgian Silver over Royal Claret, in the style of Hooper coachbuilders. It was then sold to a Canadian, who imported the car through Montreal, subsequently the car has resided in Calgary, through two other owners, since. The car has always been kept indoors. Copies of the original build records, service records, as well as original registration documents of the previous owners and original import and customs documents accompany the car. An original Owner’s Handbook is present.

The body is virtually free from corrosion. The quality of the paintwork reflects the value of the vehicle at the time of restoration, and would not be of a standard for a show car if done today. The front fenders (wings) appear to have been renewed. While there is no corrosion on the underbody, there is a bit at the bottom of the rear fenders. The glass is unmarked, and the original Rolls-Royce branded Lucas lamps are present and unmarked. The car rides on five matched correct size reproduction whitewall tires. The veneers are in good condition, all gauges and interior lamps work, although the clock is correct only twice per day. The Connolly leather presents the patina of gentle use, while the wool carpets appear to have been renewed at some time.

There is an updated electronic ignition system, sympathetically installed without modifying the car and a substitute washer bottle. The rare original unmodified parts accompany the car. During our stewardship, the transmission has been re-sealed by specialists, the brake hydraulics fully rebuilt, and regular oil sampling by Metrotech. All existing service records accompany the car.

The car is being sold only due to the advancing age of the current owner requiring downsizing. A voucher for a full tank of fuel is also included.
