This is a rare and unusual model – a soft bodied fixed head sedan – in good condition with a full history and interesting documented provenance.
The 20/25 was the most popular Rolls-Royce of the inter-war period. It is a relatively small Rolls-Royce endowed with great charm on account of its delicacy of control, its amazing flexibility in top gear and the silence of its performance on the road. A good overview of the model can be found at http://20-ghost.org/cars-and-ownership/history-of-each-pre-1940-models/
This low mileage 4 owner car was bodied in Edinburgh by John Croall & Sons who later purchased H J Mulliner & Co. The most well-known owner was Bill Anderson who purchased it from the original UK owner and shipped it to his Ponderosa Ranch (Bonanza TV Series) in the US. He later bought it to New Zealand.
The car is complete in good condition - but not concours. It has an unusual vinyl fabric body. The car runs and drives well but has been mothballed for about 10 years in a warm dry garage. The fuel tank was drained at the introduction of lead free petrol to NZ so the system should be flushed before restarting. Not currently WOF or Registered.
It’s been a lovely car to own and a great talking point with envious visitors. Sale will include a virtually new handbook and all original documentation. It can be used as a fabulous wedding car, the leading lady in a collection or refurbished to concours winning example of the world’s best marque.
