Meet Reginald (Reg) Plunkett, custodian of Letitia’s Rolls-Royce for over four decades. Hear Reg as he recounts memories of the Overends and their motoring escapades – or share details of your own sightings of Letitia driving her Rolls-Royce.

Our Vintage Car experts currently refurbishing the iconic bodywork will be on hand to discuss progress and conduct a once-in-a-lifetime under-bonnet tour, where parts bearing original Rolls-Royce stamps are testament to quality engineering and craftsmanship.
