I Rolls Royce similar to 6.9?
« on: 14 January 2021, 07:20 AM »
You can pick up a very nice Rolls for less than a 6.9.  I wonder how the 2 cars compare?

but good Lord look at that engine bay - what a nightmare of British logic.  Is that really a SU carb on that thing?

Beautiful  car, I wonder how it drives, probably sedate but comfortable.


Here is an older article comparing 6 Luxury cars of that era:

Bad childhood memories of our Leyland Austin forever cured me of British cars :o
