1934 Rolls Royce 20/25 Saloon by Park Ward for sale
Delivered to Ambrose Harding Esq. of Madingley Hall. Cambridgshire on July 17th 1934 and in his ownership until October 1942. After changing hands a couple of times she made her way to a museum in the U. S. A. in 1968. then to Canada where she was restored. then onto a wedding car company and Rolls Royce specialist in Ireland who completed the engine change to the 1993 Toyota 7M-GE engine changed for what he called "reliable daily use reasons". before being repatriated to the U. K in 2009 and purchased by us.
Only the engine and gearbox were changed; engine mounts. driveshaft. differential etc are all her own orignals. The engne was made to fit the car. and car was not altered to mate the engine. It drives very smoothly. and very very quietly - as her original would have done.
She has now been resprayed back to her original colour of Burgundy and Black. She still carries her original fitted "Brookes" trunk to the rear and. unusually for the period. she was ordered with five chromium plate wire wheels instead of the usual black painted items. This. combined with her ivory leather interior and whitewall tyres make her a very attractive car indeed.
Recently completely serviced with new plugs. oil and ignition. Her Brakes and suspension have been overhauled and gone through by Overtons Rolls-Royce in Leigh-On-Sea. and drive-train freshly greased up ready for driving and enjoying.
Bodywork. paint. chrome. leather and mahogony wood all in excellent condition and need no attention. Tyres have lots of tread. all over 5mm. The trunk is her original trunk from new and has never been repaired or restored. so isn't in quite as good shape as the rest of her. Number plate is also her original and should NOT be removed from the car by future owner! Fresh 12month MOT for peace of mind also.
The 20/25's are SELLING for £30. 00 - £40. 00 regularly even when requiring work. This one (all be it with incorrect engine) requires no work. and is realistically for sale for less then half that.
Looking for a caring owner who will appreciate her for the beauty she is.
Business expansion has caused a lack of space. thus reason for very reluctant sale.
Any questions. please don't hesitate to call or email.
