This vehicle model was manufactured between 1929 and 1936. 3827 were manufactured. Over time and wars. it is unknown how many of these vehicles still exist. This same vehicle was used in Indiana Jones and the last Crusade. and the 1983 version of from Here to Eternity! Includes some fascinating documentation. including original sales receipt. letters between attorney's and a mistaken owner. and other assorted documentation that speak to the provenance of the vehicle.

The in-line 6-cylinder overhead-valve 20/25 hp engine was similar to that used in the 20 hp but was enlarged to 3. 69 cc (223. 9 cu in) by increasing the bore from 76 mm to 82 mm. with the stroke remaining at 114 mm. A single Rolls-Royce carburetor was used. and both coil and magneto ignition were fitted. The four-speed gearbox was mounted in unit with the engine and a traditional right-hand change used. Synchromesh was fitted to third and top gears from 1932.
The substantial chassis had rigid front and rear axles suspended by half-elliptic springs with braking on all four wheels assisted by a mechanical servo. Separate rear brakes were fitted for the handbrake. The famous Rolls-Royce radiator with triangular top was used with vertical louvres. the angle of which could be adjusted to control engine cooling. To begin with. the radiator shutters were operated manually via a lever on the dash; later cars were fitted with automatic control via a thermostat.
