Rolls-Royce 20/25

Vehicle Price: GBP 1
Advert Reference Number: 14602

We are proud to be offering this 1935 Rolls-Royce 20/25 by Hooper being offered as a restoration project at a very modest price (POA). The 20/25 offered here has an elegant body line and is presented in black with ivory over a beige leather interior. Having been used for many years, the Rolls-Royce clearly shows some signs of use; attention is required to the paintwork, which is heavily cracked and flaking, and the engine needs some work. The interior is in a decent condition but attention is required to the upholstery and some of the fittings. The car is therefore offered as a project at a sensible price. Hooper coachwork was of a very high quality, and this is reflected in the car in various ways, one of them being the use of stainless steel for the construction of the windscreen frame and fittings. The car still retains its original coachwork and engine Chassis Number GSF61. It comes with a full history file with sundry invoices and the UK V5C registration document. It also comes with the registration plate YOX202.It has only had 5 owners to this date. By the late 1920s, the trend for ever-heavier coachwork on the Rolls-Royce 20hp had inevitably had a detrimental effect on performance. Rolls-Royces solution was to increase the comparatively small six-cylinder engines capacity from just over three litres to 3,699cc which, together with a stronger crankshaft allowing increased rpm, raised its output to 25hp. Over the past eight decades the 20/25hp Rolls-Royce has earned an enviable reputation of being among the most dependable, enjoyable and highest quality pre-war models of all. Produced from 1929 to 1935, it represented the marques determined effort to move away from massive formal cars, routinely chauffeur-driven, to the newly-fashionable owner-driver market for the wealthy private owner-driver. Various detail improvements were made to the 20/25 during its seven year production life including rises in compression ratio in 1930 and 1932; the latter year also saw the introduction of synchromesh for the third and fourth gear ratios, thermostatically controlled radiator grille shutters, a one-shot centralised lubrication system and an electric fuel gauge. With consideration and appropriate attention, the car will result in a desirable and wonderful example of a vintage owner-driver classic Rolls-Royce.
