For Sale – one owner for 82 years!


Allen Swift (1908 – 2010) drove the same car for 82 years. The car was a Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster he had received new as a graduation gift from his father in 1928. To save you getting the calculator out, he drove the car until he died aged 102 years!

He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new, and by the time of his death, the car (and Mr. Swift) had covered 1,721,998 kilometers.

This would have been one of the Springfield Rolls-Royces, manufactured up until 1932.

After his death, the car was donated to a Springfield museum.
