Technical specifications, photos and description:
Firstly the history file is quite interesting. in particular it's original build. The Rolls Royce was ordered originally on 06/05/1925. order no 73940. by Windovers Ltd of Streatham. A copy of the original bill of sale is on file. The price paid was £1. 50 & the chassis as they where then sold was delivered on 25/09/1925. Chassis Number was documented as 1HC engine number UJ55 It was supplied as a long wheelbase with springs for a gross weight including body of approx 12 1/2 cwt. There is a photo copy on file to suggest the car was sold to a Mr T. Richards Esquire of Streatham Hill. who owned the vehicle until 1935 - 1936.
On file are copies of various job cards for the build of the chassis. From shock absorbers. gearbox. exhaust. carbs. dash etc etc etc & test cards. All dated between the date of order to delivery. pretty much mapping the history of the cars build day by day.

Next we have a copy of the original buff log book. The log book shows 4 owners with the new modern log book reporting 2 owners. we can guess at approximately 6-7 owners from new. For anyone out there that does not know this. a modern log book will only declare the owners since the creation of DVLA in 1972. Anyone buying a car with only a modern log book. can not claim that is the total owners if car dates prior. So I believe this is a genuine low owner car.
It is interesting that even in it's latter life the 2 owners have owned the vehicle since 1989 & the one before that pre-dates 1972. Having driven this fantastic car. I can see why people would keep it for so long.

In 1982 the car was sold to a Mr William Riley of St Annes on Sea for £5. 00. by AKEDS motor dealers. & the log book was registered in Mrs Dorothy Riley. The car was believed to be in a poor state at the time.
During the next year around £4. 00 was spent on the car. possibly to make road worthy. However in the next 2 years completing on 25th April 1985 the car was completely restored costing a further £39. 94. This is a lot of money in today's terms. however back in 1985 average house prices where £33. 00 compared to today's £163. 56 (Nationwide Building Society Survey). in other words around £200. 00 restoration bill in today's money!
There is a letter on file confirming the mileage on 25th April 1985 was 30. 42.
Many many invoices for parts & labour detail the extent of the restoration during that time.
