Lot Details
The "SAFARI" Car, rare prototype/trials brochure, for "The New Town and Country Estate Car", Design No. 7501, 1957,
to be fitted to the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud or Bentley 'S' Series chassis by Harold Radford (Coachbuilders) Ltd., 17, Berkeley Street, London, W.1. and H.J. Mulliner & Co. Ltd., Bedford Park Works, Chiswick, London, W.4, eight pages, printed on one side, plus textured stapled light card cover, 4to. The brochure offers two printed line drawings of the Bentley Town and Country Estate car, as well as some details regarding the construction. A very rare item.

Footnotes

  • The "Safari" Car was primarily designed for use on the Bentley 'S' Series chassis, but could be used on the Silver Cloud chassis, if desired, as they were both basically identical to each other. Production, however, never commenced, for various reasons, although four left hand drive Silver Cloud chassis were eventually built just by H.J. Mulliner in 1959. Two L.W.B. cars and two S.W.B. cars.
