509 APC – The Green Lady
The Green Lady, like The Count, is a Mark 2 Sapphire 346. She is also a six light model with automatic gearbox. In fact, apart from the colour The Count and The Green Lady are pretty much identical.
Like the Count, The Green Lady does not carry her original colour scheme. The body was originally painted Corinthian Green over Langham Grey. The lower colour was changed at some stage prior to 1973 in favour of the Ivory that she now wears. She also benefits from a lovely Leaf Green leather interior.
In addition to weddings we have been proud to take The Green Lady to a number of classic car shows where we have frequently received comments regarding her condition and imposing looks of luxury from a bygone age.
The previous owner of The Green Lady had lovingly cherished her for 21 years and she came to us with a comprehensive history file confirming her recorded 58,000 miles from new as genuine. Her one claim to fame is that she appeared in an episode of the Antiques Roadshow filmed at Ascot Races.
Our policy is to have a rolling programme of maintenance and preventative care for all our vehicles to ensure that they remain at the highest possible standard of condition and reliability. Pursuant to that policy, The Green Lady has undergone over £2000 worth of mechanical work recently. In addition to routine servicing this has included braking system overhaul, new battery and a replacement high capacity radiator from the company that supplies the radiators for the hit TV show "Car SOS".
