The chassis and running gear will be no more or less of an issue than a regular Cloud 1/S1. With a car like that, it will all be down to the condition of the coachwork and interior.

Sorry, not much of an expert when it comes to coach. Can tell a Mulliner from a James Young from a Freestone & Webb etc etc, but thats about it.

The BDC will be able to put you in touch with an expert if you want it giving the once over.

I thought the Empress was mainly on the MKVI/R chassis, although I guess one could ask Hooper to build to your request. The North Wales dealers have a MkVI version for sale, and a "standard" Cloud.

See www.realcar.co.uk

Dad's MkVI is a Hooper bodied car, but is their so called Sports Saloon. It has a low roof line.

Anyway the Hunt House www.rrec.co.uk/website/index.asp could be a good start as they have many of the factory records.
