My family repaired Mr Swift's Rollsfrom the time he bought it until about his 95th birthday.He always damaged the right front fender.
Originally he would not even let us drive it from one place to another in our repair facility and would sit in our office with a book and read incase we needed to move the car.
It was alst repaired by us at Ct. Autobody 1323 Blue Hills Avw. Blmfld, Ct.
