Correct me if I'm wrong, I think they only made five of the Silver Arrows.
Classy car, for sure!

Nice, Nice, but they got the back door on the front and the front door on the back. (G)

ACcording to most web sites, they say five cars were built. I had heard years ago that there were six. The one shown at the Fair and then Five that were made after the fair because the word of mouth and press coverage was so great. They did build another model that incorporated some of the design features, but not the enclosed front spare tire compartments. On those cars the front clip is very similar to the production PA of that era. The rear window on these cars is for the birds. Its up high, vey small and practical only in a designers daydream.
