I wonder how hard it would be to bring it back to original fuel supply.

I’m currently assisting an elderly gentleman in getting all LPG off his Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit.
However it is a real nightmare.
Completely everything petrol related has been removed, tank, lines, electrical everything.
Nightmare is an understatement to be honest.

That’s a nice Rover.
I always think that people who don’t list an asking price are playing games or don’t actually want to sell.

one for BenzBoy.

A RR 20/25 project that has not been on the road since the early 80s. I guess you would need a sponsor and 20 years of free time to do this justice. A shame its been let get this way, as I think its a very attractive car.

It is a good example of Park Ward design and a pity the original Zeiss headlamps have been lost/destroyed. A very deep pocket should see this on the road again. Bryce; it would be a challenge for you if you wanted to sharpen your engineering and body-building skills.

Brian

Are the prices shown what they sold for or are what they were passed inat?
Just shows highest bid, unfortunately doesn't tell you if the bid was successful either during or after the auction.
Still, a good indication of what the market thinks certain cars and models are worth.

There has been a definite and material correction in the prices after the COVID highs and some sellers have not yet adjusted to this.

I see classic prices are being hit harder than I thought by the combination of high interest rates and high petrol prices.
This very nice 450SLC would have gone well into the 30s 6 months ago, but at a very well publicised auction sold for $19k. Its one of the very few K-jet 450SLCs that came in aussie delivered before ADR27A, so it has the higher compression in the much easier to maintain k-jet package.
