Available for auction is this 1935 Rolls-Royce 20/25 finished in blue over a matching interior. This two-door coupe is said to have lived in Canada since 2004 under the care of its current owner. The unique full aluminum bodywork is laid over a wood frame and was completed by Park Ward featuring a sunroof panel. This late model 20/25 offers numerous improvements over its predecessors including a newer “cat’s back” carburetor, high lift cams, hydraulic shocks, revised transmission, larger radiator, and an electric fuel gauge. The inline six-cylinder engine was rebuilt within the last 7k miles and was fitted with a new cylinder head. Now, this Rolls-Royce is being offered for auction by its seller out of Canada.
The unique Park Ward coachwork is crafted from aluminum over a wood frame and is finished in blue paint. Details include a sunroof, reverse-hinged doors, chrome brightwork, a Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, and a matching fender-mounted spare. It rides on a set of Dunlop wire wheels covered with optional ACE body-colored aluminum discs and Excelsior Stahl Sport tires.
The front and rear seats are trimmed in blue leather with matching door panels and carpets accented by polished wood veneers. Features include a four-spoke steering wheel, Rolls-Royce–branded gauges, and manual winding windows.
Power comes from a 3.7-liter inline 6-cylinder engine which was reportedly rebuilt within the last 7k miles including the fitting of a new cylinder head. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 4-speed manual transmission. The seller notes that the vacuum tank is present but not in use, the fuel tank was rebuilt and coated, and twin independent SU fuel pumps have been fitted in the rear.
This Rolls-Royce is offered with some original tools, spare parts, and a bill of sale.
