Cheers. The old man loves the RR and it gets a lot of comments whenever it's out and about. Though it's a bit erm .... Wallowy to drive. Bit like driving a cruise ship. And as a LWB it's turning circle is not much better than a ship's either!!

Someone randomly asked to buy it the other day, offered good money. Though it's only done 52k and before us it had one owner from new, my dad's mate! Sounds great, just heavy on the petrol for towing distance.

We've an LSE specialist breaker down here, worth remembering - a google of "classic LSE Ramsgate" should do you.

I miss my classics. Had a few incl an early tax exempt L-reg which given their value now I do regret selling !!

What is so special about the LSE though, why are they wanted?

I've never had an LSE but the classics wernt that spacious in the back so I'm assuming that's the main attraction perhaps. It's the same with my discovery (basically a RR classic chassis) for a big car not that spacious in the back seats.

The LSE breakers had about 25 of then parked up near manston airport for months and moths they've been slowly disappearing so someone is buying parts!!
