1937 Rolls Royce 25/30 James Young "Bromley" Saloon
Registration Number: EXF26
Chassis Number: GHO49
Sold a decade ago out of the famous Maat collection in Holland; this car is a very low mileage example having covered just 88,000 indicated miles from new. The car covered very few miles whilst in the collection.
Coachwork is a desirable & usable sports saloon by Noted makers James Young of Bromley. The car is fitted with a wind up division but has ample room in the front for drivers of taller stature unlike some of its limousine brothers.
Extensive works have been recently done to the car including a complete engine rebuild with well over £70,000 recently spent in addition to the cost of the car. Every single bearing in the engine & chassi shas been replaced & as a result the car is running beautifully. The engine is a paragon of smoothness running in complete silence. Likewise the suspansion chassis & bakres are in perfect order thoughout making for a very pleasant driving experience.
The car thus comes to us in tip top running condition with overdrive allowing for long distance cruising all day at motorway speeds. Everything needing doing has been done to this car whilst as far as possible maintaining originality to the interior. Both front & rear seats are of high quality patinated green leather in lovely order. Interior woodwork is all original & extends to occasional picnic tables for the use of the rear occupants.
Under the bonnet the car is tidy & well detailed given the massive works recently undetaken to it. Pleasingly a full set of small tools comes with the car. This is a real timewarp survivor by dint of being museum stored for many years. It is ready for immediate extended use.
