Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1936 Rolls Royce 20/25 Hooper Sports Saloon For Sale.
This charming example car was previously owned by an old man in the Midlands and over several years he rebuilt it.
It is a Hooper bodied car which he bought as just a chassis and located the body after a long chase in France. He reunited the body and chassis after a tremendous amount of work which included the following;
new wings and running boards made by an old craftsman of high quality alloy
new woodwork (ash frame in the rear of the car).
stainless steel silencer
rebuilt engine and gearbox=engine is very quiet with good pressure and runs cool
new leather uphoulstory
new french polished woodwork,
rechroming and repaint,
Since aquiring the car the current owner had a problem in that the brakes locked on.
Ben Smith the expert in Devon came down and trailored the car back to his workshop and identified the source of the problem as a worn thrust bearing in the back axle.
This was repaired with a new bearing, some work on the servo and 4 new michelin tyres as Ben thought that although they had plenty of tread they were old. The work cost in excess of £4000.
In our showroom and ready for viewing.
