The trend towards increasingly weighty coachwork prompted Rolls-Royce to revise their highly successful 20/25hp model for 1936. Raising the capacity of the six-cylinder overhead-valve engine from 3,699cc to 4,257cc provided the required power increase, while the policy of using more proprietary components begun towards the end of 20/25 production saw the new 25/30 adopt a Stromberg carburettor and SU fuel pumps.

 

In its superlative build quality and all other respects, the new Rolls-Royce remained much as its immediate predecessor, with channel-section chassis, semi-elliptic springing all round, adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers, servo-assisted brakes and four-speed right-hand change gearbox.

 

One particularly noteworthy advance though, was the adoption of cam and roller steering, replacing the preceding worm and nut, which made the steering smoother and more precise. The 25/30 was noticeably faster than the previous model, being capable of cruising comfortably at 60mph or more, with a top speed of around 80mph. The model lasted until the introduction of the Wraith in 1939, by which time 1,240 cars had been built.

 

 

Finished in Black over Grey with a contrasting white coachline following the natural lines. The paint work is hard fault and is excellent condition, the wire wheels have also been finished in the same grey body colour.

 

The interior shows a beautiful level of patina with the door cards and much of the seats believed to still be wearing their original hides.

The woodwork is great condition and has clearly been refurbished in the last few years to a very high standard.

 

The engine fires first time and certainly does not miss a beat, under load she is smooth and strong as 25/30 should be. Truly a delightful car that is in our showroom and ready for viewing.
