Chassis No. GAN52. Reg No. 711 YUU. £37. 00.
Frank Greathead took delivery of GAN52 in 1936 at his home “The Dawn” in Handsworth. The occupations of the Greathead family have been Bellows Makers. Goldsmiths. Gun-finishers. Engineers & Ventriloquists! During his lifetime Frank Greathead (1879/1965) had been a Cabinet-maker. proprietor of a furniture shop and an ironmonger. In 1929 Frank. his wife Mary and their son Norman took a cruise from Southampton to the Canary Isles on board the Otranto. A few years later Frank & Mary undertook another cruise this time in 1st class on board the Empress of Britain from New York to Southampton. The world cruises of the Empress were quite extraordinary the route was New York through the Mediterranean. along the Suez Canal to India. Bali. China. Japan. Panama Canal and back to New York. the minimum fee was $2. 00 but if you decided upon a suite with all the extra luxuries it could cost $16. 00! Frank & Mary's only child. Norman. died in 1932 aged just 26. By 1969 GAN52 was in the USA with Dr J. G. Martin of Old Town. Maine. the Dr was a car enthusiast who also had a PIII which he had imported in 1965. In 1976 GAN52 was with the Greenwald family. again in the medical profession this time as dentists. By all accounts Dr Greenwald was quite a character and prior to owning GAN52 had been involved in the acquisition of another Rolls-Royce – this car did not meet his standards and resulted in a court-case and the Greenwald's subsequent purchase of GAN52.
