This beautiful example is one we know well having supplied it to the last owner three years back in 2017. Since last seeing the Rolls Royce it has covered a further 1000 faultless miles and has been a complete delight to own. We have known the Rolls Royce since 2015 when it was subject of £20,000 of cosmetic attention and five years on the car still presents superbly with fine attention to detail evident. 70 NNX was supplied new on the 22nd August 1969 by H.R Owen Ltd to the Chairman of Mining Supplies Ltd in South Yorkshire with full refrigeration, fog lamps and lap and diagonal safety belts to each front seat. The first owner was known for revolutionising mining methods and successfully grew his Company employing 6500 people. He was also involved in some controversial industrial relations during the 1970's and 1980's and his affairs were even debated in Parliament.
70 NNX comes with a superbly well documented history detailing all ownership records and it was in 2012 when the car was purchased by one of our long-term regular customers in Lincolnshire. The car was incredibly original with a genuine mileage of 112,000 and over three years had £4500 spent improving the car. We have receipts for lubrication work, a full service to include ignition items and a brake service, a new choke pipe, Magnecor HT leads, new sound deadening felt, new Wilton carpets and a new stainless steel exhaust system at the cost of £1,450 alone. On two separate occasions the MPW was driven over to us and was in mechanically excellent condition. It retained a high quality largely original interior, but the paintwork was starting to show signs of its age.
The Rolls Royce came into our ownership for the first time in 2015 and we immediately sold the vehicle to a customer who then commissioned in the region of £20,000 of work. The Rolls Royce was taken back to a rolling shell with all windows removed and stripped down to bare metal. The car was fully re-painted in Rolls Royce Midnight Blue and bumpers, window frames, headlamp surrounds and door handles were re-chromed, the wheels were re-painted and the engine bay detailed. The car was treated to new rubbers, mouldings, window channels and a new set of tyres were fitted, a brand new wool headlining installed and all electrics were checked and window motors and switches re-furbished, seat motors removed and re-furbished and the car fully serviced. A further £3000 was subsequently spent on original specification hub caps, a period and correct Becker Europa radio from Chrome London, complete with discreetly fitted iPOD lead, lambswool overrugs and an appropriate five digit registration number with cast digit plates from Ace Peak Plates fitted.
In 2017 the Rolls Royce was treated to a brake overhaul that included stripping the braking system and rebuilding the brake calipers, fitting two re-conditioned brake pumps, two brake spheres, rear height control valves and fitting a new valvebody. The Rolls Royce was also treated to a new coolant header tank and seals, new thermostat and viscous fan taking the mechanical expenditure to around £5,000 in 2017 and its no surprise that over the three years the car has performed faultlessly for its previous owner who has really enjoyed driving this wonderful car.
Five years on since the cars cosmetic restoration work it still presents beautifully with an outstanding glass paint finish. The paintwork is stunning, the body panels beautiful and straight and the chrome work has a wonderful gleam to it. The car is very impressive throughout and the interior has a lovely aged, original feel to it although clearly benefitting from the replacement wool headlining and carpets. The seats are original, as are the door cards and they present very well with a lovely patina. The woodwork has an excellent finish the car has a real feel of quality throughout.
The Rolls Royce is truly outstanding to drive and offers luxury, superb performance, and reliability. The car handles wonderfully; the engine and gearbox are super quiet as expected and the car sails along gracefully. The car is ideal for regular use, long distance touring and is an outstanding driving car and taking another MPW to this standard will prove awfully expensive. Now showing 119k miles and having had careful use and the best part of £30,000 spent with its recent owners, this car presents like a 50,000-mile car and certainly drives like an ultra-low mileage, properly maintained car.
