1930 Rolls Royce 20/25 Landaulette by Connaught.

Chassis Number GSR42
Engine Number V7M
Registration number RX8337 (Original).

Ordered by Major the Count Gurnowski of Woolhampton Park near Reading on the 29th May 1930; He ordered a Landaulette body with division from The Connaught Motor & Carriage Co Ltd. which the car wears to this day. The car was specified with C type Steering rake. all nickel silver fittings & fold out occasional seats. Connaught bodied only 25 of this model making this one of the few remaining examples.

In the 1990s the car was the subject of a meticulous restoration including a bare metal respray in Regency blue & Dove grey. The engine underwent a full rebuild including a new aluminium cylinder head. new copper tubes to the cylinder block. descaling where required. a re-cored radiator. & new water pump etc. The rear hubs were rebuilt & the interior upholstered in Connely leather.

The next owner. one Mr Cartmell had the front axle completely rebuilt in 2004 by Fiennes Engineering. This included a new front brake cross shaft. oversize king pins. new bearings/bushes & new one shot oiling pipe work. The clutch at the same time was re-built & a new thrust bearing fitted. At the same time the car underwent a complete re-wire.

Lastly a new motoring trunk was manufactured in such a manner as to allow the landaulette roof to fold down almost flat giving the driver an unobstructed rear view; unusual in a landaulette. The tools are contained therein. The water temperature gauge was rebuilt & re-calibrated in 2007.

The car is complete & ready for service with just about everything having been done. It starts instantly. idles smoothly & drives beautifully with easy gear changes. With a spacious rear cabin. good headroom. easy access & excellent visibility it lends itself well for use as a very special wedding car.

This car is an exceptional vehicle and well worth the asking price. It has been used sparingly and has always been garaged. forming part of a collection. It can be viewed in Yeovil . Somerset. by prior appointment.
