Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield, MA ) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P 1 Roadster from his father, brand new – as a graduation gift in 1928.

He drove it, up until his death in 2010 at the age of 102.

He was the oldest, living owner of a car that was purchased new.

It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.

It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect, cosmetic condition at 82 years of age. That’s approximately 13,048 miles per year, 1,087 miles per month.
