This imposing Rolls was built by the renowned coach builders, Rippon brothers of Huddersfield to the exacting specification of Mr H Barber of Halifax and stayed in West Yorkshire until at least 1969 when the records cease. It was known to be in the USA in 1982 but little else since then.
The chassis records show as the completion date or off test as it is referred to as 24th September1935.
Lovely features include; louvered bonnet, chrome highlighted swage line with shaped door handles, twin sunroofs, quarter lights to the front and rear windows, delightful period road map to front compartment and the ivory window winder handles.
Rippon were well known for strong bodies and GOH 51 does not disappoint in this area. There is no sagging from the door hinges and the doors close with a lovely clunk. The interior is a great place to sit with sumptuous seats, good woodwork and a very well appointed dashboard.
