Many of the above details suggest that the car was destined to South Africa. The present owner was contacted a few years ago by an interested buyer that had traced the car belonging earlier to a “South African General”. However, the car badge in front is of “Royal Army Ordnance Corps”, a section of the British Armed Forces. In one picture from the 1980’s there is a yellow rear license plate, 135 238B that judging by the typeface could be South African, or by the numbers and letters Zimbabwean.
The exterior and interior colour is believed to have changed during a major restoration in the 1980’s. The seats have a nice and even patina, and probably come from another car of the same age.

Restored in late 80’s by Messrs PJ Fischer Classic Automobiles of London (all invoices follow) and sold in 1990 to Mr M Linder of a prominent Finnish noble family. Having bought back his old family mansion Mustion Linna (Svartå Slott) just a few years before – perhaps the best known and most stately of all the Finnish private homes – Mr Linder felt there was something missing and sourced the best Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud he could find. His grandfather H Linder was famous for registering the first automobile in the country in very early 1900’s – as well as for his flamboyant life style and gambling habits…

The present owner – since 2005 – has driven the car regularly every summer, covering a minimum of 300 miles annually. He was until recently an active member of the RREC Finnish Section, taking part in three club rallies 2005, 2007 and 2009, with the Silver Cloud.
