2/1/1965 Ordered by Arnold Michaels, Owner Grodins of California Inc. (Men's Clothing)

 

6/18/1965 Signed for and delivered to Miss Mary Michaels (Arnolds daughter) a Cal student on a Summer trip to London.

 

Arnold needed to own the car for a number of months before he brought it into the US to import as a "used" car rather than pay import duties on a new car.

10/6/1965 Arnold Michaels collects the Rolls in London and hires "Parfitt" a Rolls Royce Factory employed Chauffer to drive he and his wife, Lillian, around England and the Continent.

The Rolls was flown across the Channel and Parfitt drove the Michaels to Rome for a meeting of the Menswear Retailers and to see Angelo of Brioni's for a few new suits.
