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

After over 25 years of ownership by its last owner this stunningly beautiful Speed 25 SC is on the market. Restored by Hightone Restorations in the mid 1990s, with engine rebuild. The car spent many years in Greece until the owner moved to Germany where the car was registered for every day use. An interesting history, having left the Alvis works and bodied as a Charlesworth saloon, it sustained serious damage, possibly by enemy action, during the war. In the late 40s the car was taken back to "The Alvis", where it was rebodied with Vdp coachwork. This Vdp body had been taken off a Speed 20 and was apparently, lying around the factory. Driven to me from Hamburg. When the next owner is found, the car will be registered with its original number, as seen in the photographs.

The first Chrysler motor car, introduced in 1924 was to prove highly successful and met with wide acclaim. With features normally found only in far more expensive cars, such as hydraulic brakes and full-pressure lubrication, the Model 70 was capable of over 70 mph.A number of revisions were carried out in 1926, with the engine being enlarged to 3.6 litres. A 1927 example of the '70' Tourer (Phaeton) this car was exported in chassis form to Australia, being bodied there with coachwork to Chrysler design.The car was to remain in Australia until around 1973, when it was imported to the UK and acquired by a Mr. Lorch, who was to keep it until he passed away some some five years ago. During his ownership the car underwent a major restoration at the Beaulieu National Motor Museum workshops in the late 1970's and was subsequently used on a number of Continental rallies and more recently in VSCC events.Now having a charming patina, the Chrysler remains in good condition and is a pleasure to drive, with its smooth running, powerful engine.A large file of paperwork is supplied, including a copy of the original Instruction Book.A period Surrey registration number was obtained when the car cam
