A deservedly popular model powered by a refined 3669cc OHV straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, 3,827 Rolls-Royce 20/25 chassis were sold between 1929-1936. Taken off test on 12th July 1934, chassis GMD64 was originally bodied as a four-door, four-light saloon by Thrupp & Maberly before being supplied new to J. Workman Esq. Understood to have been resident in Belfast during its early life, the 20/25 later belonged to a lady in Oxford. Converted into a pick-up after World War Two - as many Rolls-Royces were to take advantage of the lower taxation on commercial vehicles - chassis GMD64 served as a delivery vehicle for a London brewery during the 1960s. Sold to a German collector in 1993 and an Austrian museum four years later, the 20/25 is being repatriated especially for the auction. Reportedly the subject of a restoration during 1997, the Rolls-Royce teams Cream / Beige paint with Green upholstery. Sporting imposing American-style 'drum' headlights, the pick-up is described by the vendor as being in 'good' condition with regard to its original engine, paintwork, interior trim, bodywork, electrical equipment and gearbox. A period conversion, this characterfu
Introduced in 1929 as a successor to the outgoing 20, the Rolls-Royce 20/25 was primarily aimed at owner drivers. Nearly 4,000 chassis were produced, making it the company's best-selling model between the wars. The example offered here is offered from a deceased estate in garage find condition however is understood to have last been run some c.3 years ago. Leaving the factory on the 18th May 1933 it was supplied new to a Lord Daresbury with Hooper coachwork to body design 8940. Having been in current family ownership since 1963 'AGN 971' is fitted with a replacement 20 HP engine however what is believed to be a 20/25 engine block, cylinder head and gearbox are offered in the sale and can be collected from our Warrington office. Offered with twin mounted spare wheels, original handbook, Brown log book and a collection of old MOT certificates plus invoices and current V5C document.
A logical progression from Rolls-Royce's first 'owner driver' model, the 20hp, the 20/25hp was introduced in 1929. Initially almost identical to its forebear, the newcomer enjoyed a greater turn of outright speed (up to 75mph depending on the type of bodywork fitted), notably superior acceleration and improved economy thanks to an enlarged 3,669cc version of the company's proven OHV straight-six engine. Fed by a single Rolls-Royce carburettor and carrying both magneto and coil ignition, the super-smooth powerplant was mounted in unit with a four-speed manual gearbox - this was operated via a traditional right-hand change and featured synchromesh on the top two ratios from 1932 onwards. Capable of supporting a wide variety of coachwork to personal taste, the 20/25hp's substantial ladder frame chassis was equipped with all-round semi-elliptic leaf-sprung suspension, four-wheel drum brakes and a mechanical servo. Progressively developed, the Rolls-Royce 20/25hp remained in production until 1936, by which time some 3,827 are thought to have been sold, making it the company's best-selling model between the wars. Autocar magazine noted that it had 'great refinement of power, and a gentle
This apparently very original, long wheelbase 20/25 was sold new to the Clyde Automobile Company Ltd of Glasgow on November 23rd 1935 and delivered to its first private keeper on January 30th 1936; a Mrs Margaret Abercrombie of Castlehead, Paisley. Come 1964 it changed hands and was shipped to the USA, where it is thought to have driven little more than 200 miles during the ensuing 40 years. Even now, it is believed to have had just four owners from new, who've apparently accrued a mere 16,511 miles between them - an astonishingly low average mileage of 201 per year. It was in 2003 that the Rolls was repatriated to the UK and four years later treated to a comprehensive refurbishment by a professional engineer. The engine was stripped, but the key components found to be within factory tolerances. A new clutch and stainless steel exhaust system were installed, the braking and steering systems overhauled, the motorcar rewired, a set of new tyres and inner tubes fitted, and the coachwork resprayed. The Limousine's intercom remains in place and operational, but would apparently benefit from a replacement handset. 'XS 3965' was clothed at birth by Hooper & Co of Westminster, London - one
The company’s dictum of “make everything as beautifully as possible and charge accordingly” was maintained in the new 20/25 model which carried over its predecessor’s conventional chassis layout. The engine was bored out to 3,669cc, the straight six being remarkably smooth and quiet as was to be expected of a Rolls-Royce. The performance was markedly improved over the 20hp model, the basic engine and gearbox configuration forming the basis for the superb ‘Derby’ Bentley which the firm unveiled in 1933. Produced alongside the Phantom II and built to the same exacting standards, the 20/25 benefited from many of the larger model's developments (such as synchromesh on 3rd and 4th from 1933, mechanically servo-assisted brakes, centralised chassis lubrication and thermostatically controlled radiator shutters), becoming the best-selling Rolls-Royce of the inter-war period with some 3,827 leaving Crewe before the more powerful 25/30 came along. This 20/25 was bodied by Park Ward with their formal six-light limousine coachwork. The factory records indicate that it was delivered new in 1935 to Lord Whitburgh. Born Thomas Borthwick, Whitburgh's father had been given the hereditary title for s

Rolls-Royce’s 20/25 succeeded the 20 H.P. in 1929 as the company’s “Small Car” offering intended for clients who chose to drive themselves rather than be driven. A vast array of improvements were made over the 20 HP, and while this was considered an entry level car by Rolls-Royce standards, it was still very much an exclusive, high end automobile that competed with the likes of the Alvis Speed 20, Hispano Suiza HS26 and the large 20hp Sunbeams. Also, it carried on the Rolls-Royce tradition in that it was offered as a complete chassis, less body, so customers specified their preferred coachbuilder at the time of ordering. As a result, a wide variety of 20/25s were built; ranging from formal closed limousines through sporting open roadsters with just about every imaginable configuration in between. The overhead-valve inline six-cylinder engine was similar to the outgoing 20 HP, but enlarged to 3,669 cc. Both coil and magneto ignition systems were provided, and the four-speed manual gearbox returned with traditional right-hand shift. Early 20hp models had a central shifter on the 3-speed gearbox which was (rather curiously) condemned by the public as appearing cheap and not to the standard expected of Rolls-Royce. The chassis of the 20/25 was a traditionally robust affair, with solid front and rear axles, semi-elliptic springs and four-wheel brakes assisted by a mechanical servo. The improved engine of the 20/25 afforded this new driver-focused Rolls-Royce with 75 mph performance, depending on the body configuration selected. Of course, heavier and more luxurious Saloons and limousines were hampered by their weight, but were nonetheless enjoyable to drive thanks to their smaller dimensions and uncompromised build quality. 4,000 were built between 1929 and 1936 making this one of the most successful Rolls-Royces of the period. The Twenty, 20/25 and their successors set Rolls-Royce on a path to success, for it was these owner/driver-focused models that formed the basis for Rolls-Royce production through the 1930s, 1940s, and into the post-war era. A top-line, Chauffeur driven model would remain as part of the line through the 1990s (with the Phantom VI), but it was the “entry-level” cars that sustained the company through today. Our featured 1934 20/25 is a handsome machine wearing sporty tourer bodywork, constructed in the style of 10EX, an experimental Phantom 1 chassis originally bodied by Barker. While most 20/25s were rather conservatively styled, this car features a rakish and exciting open four-seat body with a tapered, semi-boattail trunk – dubbed “bordino” by Italian coachbuilders of the period. The sporting body is accented by sparse, flared racing-style fenders, disc wheel covers and minimal exterior detailing (most notably, a lack of externally mounted spare wheels). The presentation of this 20/25 is outstanding, thanks to a comprehensive, body-off restoration performed while in the hands of the previous owner. According to RROC build sheets and records, this 20/25 was originally delivered to G. Vaughan Morgan of South Kensington, London, wearing D-back Limousine coachwork by Hooper. This lovely motorcar eventually found its way to the hands of Robert Collins of Miami, Florida. Mr. Collins then sold the car to a Midwestern collector who retained the car in his expert care from 1974 through 2013. Though fully restored, it is easy to see this was always a very well kept and cherished automobile. Bright red paint on the body is beautiful, free of noticeable flaws, and accented by a well-judged shade of dark red on the wings and sills. The body construction is of very high quality and the detailing is outstanding. Proper tripod headlamps are fitted as is a centrally-mounted spot lamp. The windscreen folds flat for the ultimate in 1930s sports-motoring, and a pair of very cool period Shell Motor Spirit fuel canisters are strapped to either running board. The cockpit is trimmed in lovely black leather which shows just the slightest signs of regular use and is extremely inviting and barely broken-in. The gorgeous burl-wood dash is exquisite, with centrally mounted instruments and typically over-engineered switchgear. This is a right hand drive model with right hand shift, allowing for plenty of passenger space up front. In the rear, black leather and high-quality carpet appear to have hardly been used, and a strip of matching burl wood on the rear cowl mimics that on the dash. The numbers-matching drivetrain is equally well-presented and has been restored to provide trouble-free motoring. This stylish, sporting and beautifully presented 20/25 is an unusual example of this traditionally staid model from Rolls-Royce. As a late production 1934 model, it benefits from the running improvements made by the factory, such as a 100hp engine and four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top two cogs. It is a joy to operate and would no doubt be a very fine and enjoyable choice for RROC or AACA touring, especially considering its original intent as the Driver’s Rolls-Royce.
