Items accepted into the Foundation will be assessed and housed in specialist, secure storage, in accordance with the Foundation's collection documentation and preservation policies. The principal archives and collection is housed in Melbourne in either the Bill Allsep House or Lionel Gell School of Instruction. Sub - archives are also in Brisbane for Queensland donations or for duplicated items. If there are several copies of a donated item within the Foundation’s collection e.g. publications, then the Foundation may sell them. The same applies to a donated vehicle or car body if it is duplicated or of non-archival importance. How can I get my memorabilia to the Foundation? The archivist will advise you the best way for its transport. It may be posted, delivered or collected depending on the size and weight. Will my donation go on display? The Foundation will endeavour to display donated items with a descriptive label and name of donor where appropriate. Can the Foundation provide a valuation for my items? The Sir Henry Royce Foundation cannot provide valuations of your items. As a registered Charity, the SHRF abides by the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts program. Your donated item will need to be valued by an approved expert valuer in the relevant field. The SHRF can assist you with commencing this process. ​Does the Memorial buy items? The Sir Henry Royce Foundation does not purchase material for its collection. Valuation of Museum Items For a tax deduction to be available on items donated to The Foundation, such items must be valued, independently, by two valuers nominated by the Australia Taxation Office. It is important to note that these valuations are undertaken against the background of the Federal Government’s Cultural Gifts Program and take into account the “cultural value” of the item as well as its “commercial value”. It is the policy of the Trustees that The Foundation carries the donated item as an asset in the Balance Sheet at the valuation determined by the Australian Taxation Office under the Cultural Gifts Program. This policy reflects the fact that The Foundation is a registered charitable foundation whose objectives include, inter alia, “the advancement of the science and technology of mechanical engineering for public benefit and the advancement of education”. Further, these objectives note that “the collection policy is to collect, document and exhibit objects especially related to the work of Sir Henry Royce”. It is entirely appropriate; therefore, that The Foundation’s assets are formally valued at a “cultural valuation” rather than a “commercial valuation”. This policy meets with the approval of The Foundation’s Honorary Auditor.

  • Car Collection - Shadow | hrfoundation

    Ex Vice-Regal Silver Shadow Chassis Number LRH24643 A new Rolls-Royce for the Governor of Victoria was ordered in July 1975. The model was a Silver Shadow with a long wheel base and a division which the company had first produced for Princess Margaret. The colour scheme for vice-regal cars is Black over Cardinal Red with a parchment interior. The coachbuilt features of the car include an everflex roof, a privacy rear window, dual air conditioning systems and dual stereo systems. As the Governor has diplomatic immunity, the car (particularly the division) was exempt from the Australian Design Rules. Chassis number LRH24643 was shipped in July 1976 in a container on the ‘Kangourou” and delivered to the Governor on 8 September 1976. This car is the third of four Rolls-Royce cars purchased by the People of Victoria for Sir Henry Winneke during his term as Governor of Victoria. As the vice-regal car, it was not registered and displayed only the Royal Crown while conveying the Governor to all official events including hosting Prince Charles and other foreign dignatories. After 80,000 kilometers the car was traded in on its replacement and first registered in November 1978. In private hands the car was enjoyed by a property developer, a solicitor, a company director and as a wedding hire car until acquired by the Henderson family in July 1992 with 200,000 kilometers on the dial. In the 28 year custody of the Henderson family the car received all of the maintenance it needed including repairs to the gearbox, differential, ignition, carburettors, brakes and air conditioning. While the car has never been involved in an accident, it was refurbished in 2002 with a bare metal repaint and cosmetic detailing. As a member of the Henderson family the car participated in many Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club of Australia events. Eric was President of the Victoria Branch from 2002 to 2005 and Federal President from 2006 to 2009. Eric organised many rallies and the car was used to lead Western District Weekends, Overlanders to Federal Rallies and the Australian leg of the Centennial World Tour in 2004. The Henderson family is pleased that the Sir Henry Royce Foundation is the next custodian and will ensure that the provenance and significance of this car, now 45 years old with 315,000 kilometres on the dial, is preserved for future generations. : Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow : 1976 : GOV : LRH24643 The Car Year Registration Chassis No Saloon LWB with Division : Australian Commonwealth Ex Vice Regal car Coach: Lineage Special Features: an everflex roof, a privacy rear window, dual air conditioning systems and dual stereo systems ​
