"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

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

Hey Jim, I got the ’70 SS 454 yesterday.  It made the trip on the transporter just perfect.  It has been raining so I haven’t been able to get it out to drive yet, but hopefully tomorrow.  It is a beautiful car and some of my neighbors and friends can’t quit talking about it.  Thanks for your hospitality when I flew down to look at the car.  I am glad it was like you said and I think we both ended up pleased.  I definitely will refer you if any of my friends are looking for a classic car.  Thanks again.  JS, MA

HAPPY CLIENT

Everything has gone great on the 1970 Dodge Charger RT.  Once the transport dropped it off, we are getting it ready to ship to Sweden and the buyer in Sweden is so excited and he can’t wait to get it.  Thank you for your help in making this transaction possible.  We have other international buyers looking for all kinds of vehicles, so let’s stay in touch.  Thanks again and it was a pleasure working with you.

Description
1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Long Wheelbase Touring Saloon

This 1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Long Wheelbase Touring Saloon is a factory Left-Hand Drive example wearing an older restoration. Grey with tan leather interior. The Rolls was recently started and run but its use over the ensuing two decades has been modest if at all, with the result that it will require recommissioning and careful attention before returning the car to road use. The car's aesthetics have certainly aged, and while it must have been refurbished from its original black to the two-tone grey it wears today, this work is now considerably well worn.

There can be few more stately automobiles than a 1950s Rolls-Royce with H.J. Mulliner coachwork, such as this elegant rendition by the coachbuilder on a Long Wheelbase Silver Wraith. The majestic car began its life in just the style that such an automobile should, being delivered new to the famed Hotel Georges V in Paris, for one of its residents, F. Dupre. Of course, being a Parisian delivery, it was handled by Franco Britannic Automobiles who took the order in December 1953 and fulfilled it in March 1954. The car was supplied in Mason's Black paintwork, with beige leather and cloth interiors. A whole host of extras are listed on the factory records including: Radio, Extension speaker, 2 Foglamps, Bonnet (hood) fastening from the interior, export bumpers, tables altered to form pockets, mohair rug, 8 day clock to rear compartment, Continental chassis plate, speedometer in kilos, standard and high frequency horns, and a small type front number (license) plate support. Beyond these original details, we are not sure how where the car resided in the rest of the century, however, it is believed that it spent some time in Switzerland in the late 1990s. In February 2002, the car returned to the UK, to pass through one of the foremost London dealers of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars, Frank Dale & Stepsons, then under the careful stewardship of the late Ivor Gordon and James Crickmay, to the previous owner. A supremely elegant example that warrants sympathetic attention.
