Footnotes

  • Produced between 1922-1929, the 20HP was Rolls-Royce's smallest offering in the 1920s. Despite being produced for the owner-driver, the car proved popular with chauffeur-driven customers and was built by a selection of coachbuilders including Park Ward, Mulliner, Barker, Thrupp & Maberly, and Hooper. This 1923 Hooper built example features an extensive history file and was first registered to a Mrs Emily Hurst of Haslemere, Surrey, who later sold the car to the Stephens family of 'Quink' Ink fame. The Stephens family owned the car for many years until it was then sold to Mr Ivan Odds from Kent, who added it to his extensive collection of Rolls-Royces (and where it was used for film, TV and weddings).

    The car has been in its current ownership for 10 years, and in that time has been maintained and serviced in accordance with Rolls-Royce recommendations. Recent work on the car includes a complete rewiring, renewed landaulette hood with correct grained leather, overhauled Autovac and two new Blockley tyres. Hidden indicator flashers also work and a discreet USB plug has also been fitted under the dashboard for Satnav or phone charging. The original fitment Dictograph Communicator is still in situ, and pleasingly has been recently restored and now in working order – "Home James and don't spare the horses!" There are also large files of correspondence with the car including bills, service sheets and history details. This example is presented in generally very good condition and was awarded first place at the 2019 Rolls-Royce National Rally at Burghley House. The car is also running and driving very well and covers approximately 1,000 miles a year for Rolls-Royce meets and holidays. A lovely and well-cared for example.
