RM Auctions
Automobiles of Amelia Island Collector Car Auction
Amelia Island, Florida
March 13, 2009
AUCTION RESULTS: Lot 152 - Sold at a price of $55,000

3,680 cc inline six-cylinder overhead valve engine, dual ignition via coil and magneto, four-speed manual transmission, semi-elliptic springs all around with centralized chassis lubrication and four-wheel servo-assisted mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 129"

In keeping with the Rolls-Royce tradition of a two-model policy, the 20/25 hp was engineered to be the smaller sibling to Rolls-Royce's larger Phantom II. Like all Rolls models, the 20/25 hp was a careful, strategic evolution of the previous 20 hp model.

Thanks to the increased engine output, such coachbuilders as Vanden Plas, Freestone and Webb, Park Ward, Brewster, Gurney Nutting, Coachcraft and Thrupp & Maberly could offer more lavish coachwork without the hazard of reducing satisfactory performance. Almost 4,000 20/25 hp chassis were manufactured and sold between 1929 and 1936, making it one of Rolls-Royce's best selling contemporary models.

The Rolls-Royce 20/25 Saloon with coachwork by Thrupp & Maberly offered here was formerly owned by Hollywood actor and noted car collector Edward Herrmann and his wife Star. In preparation for its showing at Pebble Beach in 2004, it received a complete ground-up professional restoration with a particular focus on aesthetics. Needless to say, this Rolls-Royce looks superb with excellent paint, chrome, interior, engine bay and undercarriage. As the restoration was conducted to the highest standards, it has held up very well and shows a condition usually reserved for the larger Rolls-Royce of the period. As such, this might be one of the best looking 20/25s in the world and is certainly one of the best we have had the pleasure of offering.
