The very last R Type built! The car is in lovely condition, very smartly painted in black pearl and silver, with fresh and lovely light blue leather & carpets, accompanied by excellent headlining and nicely finished interior wood. Mechanically, the engine runs very smoothly and the car drives well. All of this adds up to a particularly appealing example, with the last one built adding an extra edge. Offered serviced, prepared, fitted with a new set of radial tyres of a very appropriate type, newly MoT tested, and now back on its original registration number,. Chassis No. B250ZY Reg. No.UKN 222 Snippets: Welsh Princes, Military Family & Architects In 1955 Brigadier Charles Stafford Price-Davies CVO MC (1889/1959) had B250ZY delivered to his home of Oakhurst in Folkestone. The Brigadier came from a comfortable & well connected military family of Marrington Hall, Shropshire (the Price-Davies family tree can be traced as far back as the 13th century to Cynric Efell, Lord of Eglswy Egle who was the eldest of twins sons of Madog ap Maredudd, Prince of Powys. His father Lt. Col. Stafford Price-Davies served with the Royal Artillery and his two Uncles - Captain Hugh Arthur Lewis Price-Davies was with the Royal Welch Fusiliers and Major General Llewellyn Alberic Emilius Price-Davies was with Kings Royal Rifle Corp and was the recipient of the Victoria Cross for his actions at Blood Rivert Poort during the 2nd Boer War. After Charles Stafford died the property & contents of Oakhurst were put up for auction with his estate circa £250,000 - around £5.5million today. Oakhurst was built in 1929 for a member of the Vestey meat family (who were said, in 1940, to be the 2nd wealthiest family after the King), the house had many art deco features including geometrically patterned doors between the master bedroom & the dressing room. In the early 1960s B250ZY was with R. Broadbent whose home of Handsmooth Farm, Ipsden had been built in 1935 by a pupil of the famous architect Edwin Lutyens. Handsmooth was later purchased by Rowan Atkinson who demolished and replaced the building with a modernist house designed by Richard Meieras the eldest of twin sons of Madog ap Maredudd, Prince of Powys).
