Two Careful Owners (At Least)

This interesting LWB Silver Shadow was up for sale 18 months ago:
Some interesting previous owners.
Specially ordered for Princess Margaret (not Burt) which (to quote) 'incorporates many special features requested by Her Royal Highness including a raised rear floor for easier access; leather trimmed (instead of wood veneered) door cappings; flat side indicators fitted in line with chromed body mouldings; Nuella Black hide interior; and Cardinal Red paintwork with contrasting gold coachlines'

Princess Margaret liked LWB Shadows.
A pilot batch of LWB Silver Shadows was made between 1966 & 1967.
One of these (LRH2542) was specially built for Princess Margaret. This one was dark green with special green hides, grey green carpet and oiled teak facia.
Here it is:
John Blatchley specially designed the roof mounted Royal coat of arms on request from the Princess.
The car sports the original roof mounted Police lamp similar to EHJ118P's.
Thanks for the link, Justin S.
