The original restorer was a Mike De-Costa from Sarasota Florida USA. We do not know how the car got to America but on the paper work in hand writing it suggests that the car was given to the Royal Air Force by the Campbell family? Mike started work in 1983 (date stamped on the back of the photos); unfortunately he died while the work was in progress and his widow entered her for auction. An Englishman won the sale and re-imported it to Kent in the UK (customs declaration with Bonham’s listing the original owner as Captain Sir Malcolm Campbell) with all good intentions but failed to make any progress 10 years later. The previous owner acquired her 6-7 years ago and after 3 years of hard labour returned her to what you now see.The chassis:Stripped bare cleaned and paintedWith all ancillaries re-installedNew spring gaitersNew tyresNew exhaustNew André Hartford tele shock absorbersThe engine, (no GF-45) work comprises of:A new cylinder head complete with valves, guides .springs etcNew pistons and re-boreNew cam followersRecon crank and white metalNew clutchThe body:Barker sports tourerIs original and stamped accordingly (no9988) with the body number listed in the Rolls Royce build documentsThere is quite a list of extras that Sir Malcolm requestedExample a small receptacle under the n/s cubby-hole forInsurance documents.
