1935 Rolls Royce 20/25 Mulliner Sedanca in pleasantly patinated original condition. Chassis number GLG16
The car has seen little but regular use until seven years ago when it was sold into a Moscow Based collection due to the advancing age of the then owner.
Recently recommissioned, the car is in superb running order. The engine starts readily on the first turn & needs minimal starting carb' before settling down to an even idle. Right away the car started off the switch 5 times in a row, attesting to the excellent compression of the engine. (ie by allowing the engine to stop,switching the ignition back on, then quickly retarding the ignition which creates a spark & allows the engine to waft into life all by itself without recourse to the starter motor or starting handle.)
The exterior of the car is deep rich brown over cream & presents extremely well. The body has very pleasing lines with a graceful flow when viewed in side profile. Twin covered sidemounts are fitted to the running boards & twin trumpet horns to the front. A useful luggage shelf folds out from the rear. Being a sedanca the front section of the roof slides back & stows away behind a hatch in the roof bulkhead allowing for open motoring in fine weather; it may be closed during inclement weather.
The engine bay is tidily detailed & retains its original bakelite mushroom coil housing, although the car is now running on a more recent coil. The car is running well off its original auto-vac petrol feed. A complete tool kit is located in a slide out drawer under the front seat. A period owner's manual also comes with the car much besmirched by grimy chauffeurs fingers!!
Inside the car is brown leather to the front & rear which has been re-coloured as attested to by a receipt from Connolly Bros. Overall the condition is very good, whilst not being new. Lovely features abound in the interior: picnic tables with integral storage boxes, a rear mounted speedometer & clock, very Art Deco rear alcove mirrors with lights that still work, etc etc. Brown carpets in excellent order complete the ensemble.
All in all an imposing car with considerable presence & lovely mechanics, ready for the next chapter in her life.
