- N.O.S Body for sale
If you own a pre-war Bentley or Rolls-Royce motorcar,
Then you must read this letter!
On Thursday, October 8th and Friday 9th, 2015 the Rolls-Royce Foundation will be once again opening it's parts warehouse to the public. The Foundation is offering for sale Rolls-Royce and Bentley Parts from one of the largest collections of parts for pre-war cars ever assembled! These parts were accumulated over a lifetime by our friend and RROC member and RRF Benefactor, Dr. David Morrison. Recently, he donated this extensive collection...including hundreds of parts ranging from brand new "old stock" complete with the original tags from Rolls-Royce, to parts that clearly have spent decades in a farmer's field...but may well be the very last of their type on earth! We would like to thank Dr. Morrison for his generosity to the Foundation and for making it possible for the members of our Club to have access to parts that are generally just not available.
There are, quite literally, hundreds of parts being offered for sale. In some cases we have several examples of a given part and they vary widely in quality. To help you determine if we have what you need, here is the link to a comprehensive inventory of the vast majority of the parts that will be offered at the sale.
The sale take place at the RROC/RRF facility at 189 Hempt Road in Mechanicsburg, PA. It will begin at 10AM sharp and conclude at 4PM. If you plan to attend the sale please give us a call at 717-697-4671 to let us know!
The parts being offered for sale are all at least 50 years old. We have attempted to identify them based on the inventory that accompanied the donation, and with the assistance of recognized experts in the field. Each individual item; and there are hundreds, varies greatly in condition and may not be properly identified.
This is a totally unique opportunity. We hope that you will study the list on the Foundation website and then come to our sale on October 8th and 9th with your checkbook and transport vehicle. We look forward to seeing you and wish you good shopping.
Please review the list at the left. Both MS Word and Adobe Acrobat PDF versions are here for your convenience.
The parts will be available for purchase on October 8th and 9th 2015.
