This Rolls-Royce is a beautiful example of a 20/25 (also called “20/25 HP”) with a rare three-position Drop Head Coupé bodywork by coachbuilder H.J. Mulliner. This car was ordered to the specifications of the world's most famous Rolls-Royce dealer Jack Barclay on 16th July 1934. The chassis was delivered to H.J. Mulliner on 11th October 1934 who then built the three-position Drop Head Coupé body on it. The completed automobile was sold to J.W. Ansell of Rainham, Surrey, on 28th January 1935.
An extensive restoration was carried out during the 1980s. After this, the 20/25 was shown at various events. This led to various awards, including the Rolls-Royce of England Trophy for “the best pre-war automobile” at the national Rolls-Royce meeting in Lancaster, and the Rolls-Royce Trophy for the “best in class” at the Grand Classic Show in Columbus, Ohio.
This 20/25 was imported into England in 1988 and was part of an exceptional collection of automobiles. After the restoration in the 1980s, the car was rarely, but regularly, driven. The beautiful restoration was clearly of a very high standard. The paint still has an exceptionally deep shine and the gray leather interior is in beautiful condition.
This incredibly beautiful 20/25 still has the original engine, which is technically and optically a gem. This is a real Rolls-Royce: starting is easy, driving is smooth and quiet. The roof has three positions: it can completely be opened, it can only open at the front and it can be closed completely. The vanes in the stately grille open automatically as soon as the engine warms up. A beautiful toolkit is incorporated into the trunk lid. The leather, the woodwork, the carpets, everything in the interior is in excellent condition.
The Rolls-Royce has a Dutch registration and is in excellent condition.
