Technical specifications, photos and description:
Welcome to my NO RESERVE auction of this Rolls Royce 20/25 1932. The car was dry stored in a garage for approx 30 years. The car is about 99% complete and missing a few components:Rolls Royce MascotHeadlight glasses and reflectorsSpare wheels are present but missing retaining boltsTime clock from dash missingAnmeter missingSpare wheel discs are present but missing some retaining ringsExhaust silencer missing (probably rusted away)
I have tried to be as honest as I can but the car could be missing a few small other items that I haven't identified.
I have had the car running for around 45 minutes. The block and the cylinder head appeared to be fine. Apart from a leak on the water pump the engine ran up and maintained the correct temp (no overheating issues). I changed the oil (no water was in the old oil) so all seems to be good.
The body on the vehicle is in good condition apart from the front guards which are a bit rough and will need some attention. The main body may need some realignment of the doors and will need painting. But you will NOT need to remove any aluminium panels to replace any of the ash framing as the body is all structurally sound. This body is desirable as there are occasional seats but no division.
I have the original buff book plus a current V5 in my name.
A 20/25 body and 4 guards on ebay would generally sell for £2k. There have been a few running chassis recently listed/sold on ebay for £9-10k. The vehicle also has a good transferrable 2 letter number BR**** (original). I have googled the number on several number plate sites and could not find a BR number for less that £3200. It must be worth at least £2k.
