Rolls Royce Phantom II

Here's a photograph taken of a car going up to the start line in the Exchange Station car park in Manchester at the start of the Manchester to Blackpool Veteran and Vintage Car Run in June 1991.
It's a 1930 Rolls Royce Phantom II and looking out of the front passenger seat is the late Les Dawson. The programme of the event said this about the car:

159.     1930 Rolls Royce Phantom II
             Reg: USV 694   6 cylinders    7668cc
             (Les Dawson, Lytham St Annes)
This Rolls is owned by Industrial Control
Services and Les Dawson will c0-drive it
on the Run with Peter Hall.

On 5 February 2015 I showed photographs of Les Dawson and this car at the 1987 Run.
