 Latest in the line of 'small' Rolls-Royces that had begun with the 'Twenty' in 1922, the much-revised 25/30hp arrived in 1936. The newcomer was a development of the immediately preceding 20/25hp model that had been introduced in 1929 featuring an enlarged (from 3,127 to 3,699cc) and more-powerful cross-flow version of its predecessor's six-cylinder, overhead-valve engine. 

 Eventually the trend towards increasingly weighty coachwork prompted Rolls-Royce to revise the 20/25. Raising engine capacity 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 25/30 remained much as its immediate predecessor, lasting in production until 1939 by which time 1,201 cars had been built.

 This particular Rolls-Royce 25/30 chassis number 'GXM18' carries rakish sports saloon coachwork in razor-edge style by H.J. Mulliner & Co of Chiswick, one of the finest British coachbuilders of all time. 

 First ordered by H.G. Sicklemore although he never actually took delivery. DJJ was then bought by Stanley Augustus Holloway, OBE who was an English stage and film actor, humourist, singer poet and monologist.

 DJJ 500 was exported to California, spending 40 years in a warm and dry climate before returning to the UK in 2008. Since returning comprehensive works have been carried out, including a engine rebuild by Hamlin & Co of Bridgewater, at the same time the body was removed and the chassis was subject to a complete strip down and restoration. The one shot lubrication system and fuel pumps have also recently been rebuilt.

 

In our showroom and ready for viewing.
