Properly converted from a saloon many years ago, but recently comprehensively restored body-wise & fully re-painted to a high standard. Much other work has been carried out as well, including a new hood. The car is smart and lovely, with excellent chrome work, leather, veneers, etc. The underside is all very good too & a stainless steel exhaust system is fitted as well as radial tyres which suit the car well, vastly improving the driving experience. The original registration number is a nice one, and the car is offered running well and MoT tested. Priced very reasonably, offering good value for money, particularly if compared to a 'genuine' H. J. Mulliner conversion. Chassis No. B354HN Reg No. ORH 10 Snippets: The Seven Seas. The 1st owner of B354HN was Peter Denham Christie whose grandfather - Charles J. D. Christie - was the first manager of the Swan Hunter Shipyard. Peters father, John Denham Christie was a naval architect & shipbuilder and held the position of Chairman of Swan Hunter from 1930/39. Susan Denham Christie was the first lady to graduate as a naval architect, she designed battleships for the navy and also floating vessels used on D-Day, she later joined the family firm at their Neptune yard in Tyneside where she undoubtedly worked alongside her brother Peter - the Managing Director. After just 3 years B354HN was bought by Graham Hellyer, a scion of the Hellyer shipping firm which was founded by Robert & Charles Hellyer in the mid 1800s. In 1926 Frank & Owen Hellyer pioneered the fishing of Greenland Halibut & in the early 1930s Owen Hellyer, together with Tom Boyd formed the British Cod Liver Oil Producers (Hull) Ltd & their cod liver oil refinery at Marfleet was, in its day, the worlds largest! Today this section of the Hellyer business is better known as Seven Seas Cod Liver Oil.
