We knew our stunning 1968 Rolls Mulliner drop head was owned by Sir Michael Caine from new and then he sold it to Jack Leach who owned the Gassworks Club In London however it has been brought to our attention he did a film in 1969 called Candid Caine !!.

It is simply fantastic to see him with the car and his chauffeur following him along the streets of London whilst he mingles and talks with the owners.

This car has such a amazing story if only it could talk ..

It was Sir Michael Caines first Rolls .

It features greatly in the film if anyone wants to watch scroll through to 42 mins 19 seconds ..

Then the story continues with Jack the second and last owner who we are advised by Jacks family Sir MC sold it to him. and him having it decades ferrying about the likes of Princess Margaret / Richard Burton /Elizabeth Taylor / The Krays to name but a few .!!!

If only we had known about this film we would have put a matching colour hood on it came to us with a black hood and we fully refurbished the hood and frame and kept it black I guess the next custodian can change if they so wish ..

The interesting thing about the car is the passenger side head rest and not one on drivers seat ..

Sir Michael Caine learnt to drive in his late 40s we are told so his chauffeur drove this and did not get a headrest !!!.

This vehicle is potentially going to auction in March who knows it’s value ..

Just how many 2 former owner examples fully refurbished can there be with a history like this one ..

The Film frankly is the icing on the cake in this cars journey ..

Chassis number with HLS prefix means it was originally LHD.

If it was first registered in Japan wouldn't it be more likely to be RHD

Your standard of work not great don’t even remove headlight and list goes job

This is a very cheap Jaguar 3.0 D portfolio
We have just taken back in and it is in very good condition with a good history ..

Priced to sell at £4995 ..
