HAPPY CLIENT

Hello Mr. Lowrey:  I wanted to tell you the ’77 Corvette made it home safely.  I know you were a little concerned about driving it this far, but I had no problems at all.  It turned heads all the way home.  My buddies are “jealous”.  Thank you again for being honest about the car and I know I will enjoy it for a long time.  RT, MS

Jim, it was nice working with you.  I am not sure if I will do anything to the car (1970 GTO), but it really is a lot better car than I thought originally because the price was so good.  I am glad I came to look at it and have my mechanic check it out.  I will keep up with your cars because I still want to add to my collection as I can.  Thank you again.  AB, AL

Sheryl from Birmingham says:

Jim did an absolutely fabulous job from start to selling of my husbands car. He took, what was a very stressful situation for me, and made it very easy. He handled every detail as if he knew my husband personally. I highly recommend his services for selling your prized vehicles.(Sheryl, Birmingham, AL)

"I've known Jim Lowrey for almost 30 years and have always respected him as the most knowledgeable and experienced person I knew when it came to cars. Buying cars through Jim has made the process literally a breeze!  Even more important to me than his expertise is his honesty and integrity. I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to buy or sell a car!"  MG, AL

1953 Bentley R-Type Continental Fastback with Ties to "James Bond" Creator Ian Fleming: One of 41 Left-Hand Drive Examples Produced
This 1953 Bentley R-Type Continental l Fastback LHD by H.J. Mulliner is an undisputed icon of British motoring and one of the all-time great Bentley models. Built in extremely limited numbers, these high-performance grand touring cars attracted an elite clientele that included royalty, celebrities, and captains of industry. This car, BC10LB, is certainly no exception, as Ian Fleming, creator of the James Bond series, ordered this Bentley for his friend and collaborator Ivar Bryce. Bryce, a fascinating figure in his own right, worked for the British Security Coordination during World War II and was the inspiration for Flemings character Felix Leiter. Originally finished in Deep Grey and specified as a left-hand drive, manual gearbox car with fender spats and lightweight seats, Bryces R-Type Continental was equipped with bespoke features such as fitted luggage and a racehorse mascot. Mechanically sound, the car currently runs and drives well. A black-plate California car with exceptional provenance. Retaining its original interior and matching numbers engine. One of only 41 left-hand drive examples produced and a 1971 Pebble Beach Class Winner. This significant Bentley discovery represents an extremely exciting once in a lifetime opportunity that should not be missed.
