Walnut & willow

This 1977 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, chassis #PRH4850, was offered for sale by Hooper & Co in the very early nineties:

The location of the photo is immediately recognisable as the courtyard of the Hooper & Co premises in Kilburn, North London.

Its described as walnut over willow gold with dark brown Connolly leather to the front compartment and chocolate brown velvet to the rear.

And advertised as having completed only 9,000 miles from new.

The asking price was GBP 325,000 - a massive sum  for even the best example!

Not only then, but today too.  

A quick search shows that #PRH4850 was also offered at subsequent Coys Auctions in November 1998 and October 2000, but that it failed to sell on both occasions.

Please tell us if you know anything more about it...
