T87’s been a bit busy of late, but hasn’t given up on CC. My last post here featured this Rolls, which I had managed to capture only three photos of at the time. As luck would have it, I saw it on the street shortly thereafter, doubling the amount of documented evidence and proving, as I and some CCommenters suspected, that this is indeed a Park Ward.
I was fortunate enough to be able to capture it from more angles as it floated by me. Though rather imperfect, this side-shot shows the 25cm (10”) stretch quite clearly, which makes this car on of 127 LWB Silver Seraphs ever made from 2000 to 2002.
Not too many people picked the Park Ward, as it added US$25,000 to the 2001-02 Seraph’s base price of US$226,000. A grand per centimeter, in other words. Nowadays, you could pick one up for US$50,000 or less. That’s old Rolls-Royces for you — something of a bargain, but only for those who can afford it.
