This Rolls-Royce was ordered by a brewery owner in Liverpool and features coachwork by the Plaxton Company in Scarborough. The purchaser was a large man and hence the oversized passenger side of the seat. He was also an avid cigar smoker and had a solid silver ash tray installed.

The second owner bought the car in 1934 with 75,000 miles on it. He only put 5,000 miles on the automobile and sold it in 1965. Additional notes say the car was not driven from 1949 through 1965. It changed hands a couple more times before the current owners purchased the car and, within months, bravely drove it on their first Wholly Ghost Tour in North Carolina.
