The Rolls-Royce 25/30. built between 1936 and 1938. is an
updated version of the 20/25 featuring a larger engine than had
been fitted to the earlier model which provided more power to
compensate for the over-size bodies being built. The in-line six
cylinder. overhead valve. engine was similar to that used in the
20/25 but increased in capacity to 4. 57cc. A single proprietary
Stromberg downdraught carburettor replaced the Rolls-Royce one and
magneto ignition was no longer fitted but a spare ignition coil was
provided. The riveted chassis had rigid front and rear axles
suspended by half elliptic springs with hydraulic dampers. Braking
was on all four wheels assisted by a mechanical servo with separate
rear brakes fitted for the handbrake. Also fitted was the
traditional Rolls-Royce radiator with vertical louvres. the angle
of which was controlled thermostatically to control engine cooling.
Only the chassis and mechanical parts were made by Rolls-Royce. The
body was then made and fitted by a coachbuilder selected by the
owner.

GLU 2. the second Rolls-Royce 25/30. was built as a
propaganda/trials car and initially intended to be fitted with a
saloon body by Barker which was then changed when the chassis was
sent to Park Ward and fitted with this very pretty Sedanca de Ville
body. On completion. Rolls-Royce entered it as the official car in
the 1936 JCC Rally in the United States and Canada. There is a copy
of a photograph from 'Rolls-Royce - Twenty to Wraith' by Alex
Harvey-Bailey. of the car on the docks in front of the luxury
liner. the Queen Mary. prior to departure. After the trials. the
car was returned to the factory. prepared and sold to Mrs. Leney of
Faversham. Kent who kept the car for two years before selling it. br/>in 1938. to Charles Cottrill of Southport; the next listed owner
was his wife. Elsie Cottrill in 1951 and then D. R. Cottrill in
1965. After this date. little is known about the keepers until a
Mr. A. M. Johnson acquired the car in October 1988 and had a new
cylinder head fitted in 1990. The vendor purchased the car in 2005
and. being an active member of the RREC. he took part in a number
of rallies including. in 2011. being one of the 100 cars driven
through London in the Rolls-Royce Spirit of Ecstasy Centenary
Drive. Finished in its original colours of grey with grey interior. br/>GLU 2 is supplied with a V5C registration document. the old pre-war
buff log books. the RREC copies of the original chassis cards. old
MoT test certificates. a small number of invoices and other
documents. Some work is necessary to get the Park Ward patterned
Sedanca roof to work and a light sympathetic restoration to the
coachwork is required to bring the car back to its former glory. br/>but this is an ideal opportunity to purchase a very original 25/30
which runs well and is mechanically sound.
