1932 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Gurney Nutting Sportsman Saloon offered with a reserve
This is an example of the attractive Gurney Nutting 4 door coachwork on the 20/25 chassis. The vehicle started life in Bickley. Kent England and was ordered by a businessman for use “on the continent” so special springs were fitted. Original equipment included bumpers front and rear as well as a full set of lighting and horn equipment. A unique feature of the GN 1932 build was the small trunk with rear mounted spare wheel and spun aluminum wheel discs.
The blue chosen was similar to the then popular Donald Campbell blue as used on his land and water speed record machines. 1932 was the year RR Designer Henry Royce passed away so the hood badge is still red. All subsequent years are black.
The vehicle received a high standard restoration of body and interior around 2005. At that time the engine and brakes were overhauled.
The vehicle was purchased and imported by the current owner from Ivor Bleaney Classic Cars –New Forest England. in 2009. The sale included copies of the original build sheets as well as road tests and sales information from that time.
The current owner has detailed the engine compartment and restored the interior walnut trim. A new exhaust system has also been custom made and fitted this year.
The vehicle has been used for shows and short road trips and is quite drivable. The engine pulls very well; gear shifting is very precise with synchromesh on third and top gears. Brakes are surprisingly effective and road holding is satisfactory. Original cross ply tires on wire wheels.
