1927 Rolls Royce 20hp by Brewster

Chassis Number GAJ15
Engine Number D5W
Registration number RR3891 (does not go with car. )

An historically important car. first registered to Mrs A. L. Sylvester; owner of the Plaza Hotel in New York. The town car Broughham style coachwork is beautiful in its details & harks back to the days when carriages outnumbered cars on the road.

This car is featured in many prominent publications including John Fasals authoritative work "The Rolls-Royce 20" & more recently Nick Walkers Book "20HP. 20/25. 25/30 & Wraith" where no less than 8 pages are devoted to it.

This car is one of those untouched jewels that very occasionally come to market. Part of its preservation is due to the fact that for many many years it was residing closeted in a Texas collection where it rarely turned a wheel & had nothing whatsover done to it in the way of modernization or so called "improvements. "

Very few 20hp Rolls-Royces were exported to America. About 45 we believe. Brewster bodied a handful of these. of which this car is an example. The body is in the style of an open drive opera coupé complete with opera lamps to the pillars. It is quaint & very very carriage like. particularly when viewed from the rear. The body is totally original & sports its original hand painted vibrant colour scheme of red & black. with alternating red. burgundy & black stripes running vertically up the top sections of the rear cab sometimes known as Dutch Pink. The car is quite unique in appearance & was even used as a pattern for a run of "top Marques" models.

The interior of the car again is original & has stood the test of time well. It abounds in a wealth of wonderful & unique period details: Filigree door handles. matching filigree window winders. original silk blinds. a filigree surrounded rear interior light. likewise for a splendid 8 day movement clock. speaking tube. the list goes on. The filigree may possibly be attributed to Faberge & is certainly of that makers quality.

The car sits on steel Dunlop artillery wheels. The twin side mounted spares are similar. A partial tool kit is located under the drivers seats along with a period light bulb holder. The car has a Klaxon horn under the bonnet.

Under the bonnet the car has had a full engine rebuild by marque specialists & the car comes with a photographic record of this work. Thus she starts & runs beautifully. We are not able to warrant the indicated mileage of 86. 00 but given the cars provenance it may well be correct. Certainly the car drives in a taut manner & the steering is sufficiently play free to add credence to this. A further £9000 has just been spent on fettling the car during the last few years.

The car is quite clearly a collectors piece & an utterly charming vehicle. It may be viewed by appointment in Yeovil.
