unique Mulliner Park Ward coach built wedding car conversion, vast
This is a unique vehicle which was
purchased by a very wealthy Arab gentleman in 1985 and professionally
converted by Mulliner Park Ward for his wife for their wedding in 1994. We
have copies of all communication between the owner and Mulliner Park Ward
discussing the conversion and the invoices for all the work carried out.
In total over £58,000 was spent on the conversion - in 1994 !
The vehicle was completely stripped
down and rebuilt with many of the panels replaced with new, all glass
removed, seals renewed, woodwork renewed and the entire car repainted and
re-trimmed to the owners specifications. Highlights of the expenditure
include 5 metres of Wilton carpets and 10 connolly hides at a cost of
£5,000, chemical strip to bare metal and repaint in two pack paint at
£12,000, new woodwork at £3,280 and a new stereo system with multiple
speakers at £1,735 ! The car was then subjected to a comprehensive
service, again at Mulliner Park Ward, at cost of over £13,000. All this
work was carried out with 58,000 miles recorded and the car has covered
just 60,000 miles now.
property of the lady it was built for, the car has seen very little used
since the wedding covering only 2,000 miles in 25 years, most of the
mileage covered while the car was on loan to friends and relatives for
their weddings. Together with the vehicle we have an A4 binder
approximately 2 inches thick containing a large collection of invoices
detailing repairs and maintenance carried out in recent years, much of the
work being carried out at local marque specialists Bowling Ryan who are
very well known to us and highly respected. The history folder also
contains old MOT's, tax discs and previous V5's. It is very interesting to
sit and peruse the history folder, there are some eye watering invoices
contained within, it is clear this car has been maintained with a "money
no object" approach and it drives accordingly.
