THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Produced between 1936 and 1938, the Rolls-Royce 25/30 was introduced as a replacement to the successful 20/25 released in 1929. The impetus for creating the 25/30 was largely a desire for increased power to motivate the cars when equipped with elegant - and heavy - custom coachwork. Along with other advancements including changes to the braking system, the 3,669cc inline-6 engine was bored out to 4,257cc, while stroke remained the same. This increased displacement gave the updated model enough of a power increase to satisfy the demands of their clientele before the introduction of the Wraith in 1938.

According to factory records, this particular 25/30 was first sold on 25th of August 1937. Of interest, it was sold to Arthur Mulliner Ltd, a noted English coachbuilder. As new it was fitted with an enclosed limousine body.

The car was donated to the Rolls-Royce foundation a few years ago. It has been run in their care, and stored in the facility in Pennsylvania. It comes with an assortment of parts on additional pallets. Some pieces of the original body accompany the car.

Today, this particular chassis seems to a be in very good order. It would be a great project for the home restorer. Prewar Rolls-Royces are a joy to work on, as they are beautifully engineered.

Anyone who has ever driven a 25/30 will tell you that they incredibly pleasant and easy to drive- not as imposing or as hard to handle as the Phantom II or III and with plenty of power. With a light body fitted it could be made into a very nice well performing tour car.
