With one owner for the last 26 years, this car is delightfully correct, undisturbed, sound and sharp and finished in a lovely special order colour scheme, subtly two toned as per the original build records in light green & grey/green. In certain lights the colour split is hardly noticeable, but in others distinctly different. The interior is gorgeous, being original red leather, beautifully matured, soft & supple, complimented by lovely veneers, excellent headlining and carpets. A very rare and desirable car, of excellent specification which includes power steering, and with what is generally considered to be the most desirable coachwork offered on the S Types. The car runs well and drives very nicely despite being idle for many years, but nevertheless is to be fully re-commissioned, serviced and prepared prior to sale, fitted with new tyres, braking system refurbished, etc, and it will be newly MoT tested.

Chassis No. BC6EL Reg. No. UYU 328

Snippets: Parkinson the Philanthropist
Albert Parkinson (1888/1971) trained as an electrical engineer and in 1913 he and his brother Frank set up F & A Parkinson Ltd, their philosophy was one of practical idealism which translates as high wages & low production costs. The family firm became well known for their modernity and an as such became leaders in staff welfare. In 1927 Parkinson merged with the electrical firm of Crompton (Colonel Crompton was a founder member of the RAC) and the new firm of Crompton Parkinson Ltd grew into an international business with Frank & Albert as joint Managing Directors. In 1943 Albert was awarded an MBE for his charitable works but it was small consolation to him as in 1944 his wife, May, died and his brother Frank in 1946. During WWII the company diverted into the manufacture of ammo for the .303 rifles yet still found time to acquire several smaller electric companies including the Young Accumulator Co. Albert kept BC6EL until 1965.
