Drophead Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
Chassis #: BC22LBG
Sold for $1,683,000 at 2017 RM Auctions : Amelia Island.
Park Ward built this design on only 31 left-hand-drive S1 Continental chassis. This style was not an 'adaptation' from the factory design stampings, but rather a fully custom body, built from the ground-up by Park Ward, handcrafted in aluminum.

This example was ordered by Edwin Jay Gould. He specified the car with sealed-beam headlamp, special fender lights, Windtone horns, and a speedometer in miles-per-hour.

This Park Ward Convertible has only 49,997 miles on the odometer with 9,204 of those miles travelled since being refurbished in 1993. Restoration was accomplished by Vantage Motorworks of Miami. The car is finished in period colors of Gunmetal grey over Mason's black with Connolly hides piped black to match the English mohair roof. It left the factory with air-conditioning and was sold to Edwin Jay Gould. The current owner is only the second registered owner.

The car is fitted with original keys with their engraved codes accompany its interesting ownership documentation. The Park Ward Convertible sold for $18,605.
