1930 Rolls-Royce 20/25HP Sport Coupe

1930 Rolls-Royce 20/25HP Sport Coupe
44,000.00 USD
Offered For Sale at the: RM Auction - Vintage Motor Cars at Meadow Brook Hall August 6, 2005, Auburn Hills, Michigan RM Auctions One Classic Car Drive Blenheim, Ontario N0P 1A0 Canada Phone: 519-352-4575 Website: www.rmauctions.com 1930 Rolls-Royce 20/25HP Sport Coupe LOT: 048 Chassis No. GLR27 Sold at a price of $44,000 3,680cc 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 servoassisted mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 129" Chassis number GLR27, the lovely and very handsome Park Ward sport coupe offered here was delivered to Rye, New York in 1930 but wound up in the hands of Dr. Arthur McGraw of Grosse Pointe, Michigan in 1935. Dr. McGraw joined the Henry Ford Hospital staff in 1922 and later became the Surgeon-in-Charge of what was then known as the "Tumor Clinic." Although unconfirmed, he is also reported to have been one of Henry Ford’s personal physicians. Surviving correspondence documents Dr. McGraw’s conveyance of the car to the Edison Institute in 1939, where it remained on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn until 1982. At that time, it was purchased at auction by James Metheny of Coachbuilt Motors in Columbus, Ohio, who aquired the car for his personal collection. James retained the car until he sold it to the vendor in March of this year. Except for a color change in the 1930s (the car was originally maroon but went into the museum in the green with black wings paint scheme it retains today, having not been repainted since), the car is very original, retaining most if not all of the unusual features shown on the chassis card, including fitted luggage, unique turn signals, spare and tools in the boot (no external spare). The interior is original as well, but Mr. Metheny did replace the two seater's leather top. Although largely unrestored, GLR27 has received excellent maintenance and care throughout its life, and today, even the work done years ago has acquired a lovely patina. Perhaps the most appealing feature of the car is its unique two place sport coupe coachwork. To modern eyes, many of the bodies fitted to Rolls-Royce cars are less than attractive; GLR27 is a notable exception, with a compact passenger compartment that lengthens the appearance of the bonnet while lending a distinct sporting appearance to a chassis that more often received rather utilitarian coachwork. The vendor purchased the car with the intention of preparing it for a tour in the U.K., although a change of plans has resulted in his decision to part with GLR27. Nonetheless, in preparation for the tour, an extensive program of road testing, inspection, and repairs to the fuel and ignition systems was undertaken. The mechanical work was done by the vendor’s shop, while the cosmetic updates were handled by D&D Restorations in Ohio. Today, this highly original and very pretty coupe offers a unique blend of style and originality. It is refreshing indeed to find a well preserved example in a world surrounded by restored cars that retain little if any of their original character and patina.

1952 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith Park Ward Saloon

1952 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith Park Ward Saloon
36,300.00 USD
1952 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith Park Ward Saloon Auction Sale Price: $36,300 Barrett-Jackson Car Auction, Scottsdale, AZ, January, 2010, Lot Number: 934.1 This 1952 Silver Wraith with 4 door Saloon coachwork by Park Ward is powered by a 4,566cc (279cid) engine, its coachwork is an innovative design first shown by Park Ward at the 1949 Earls Court Show. Known as design number 144, eventually 121 were built accounting for well over a third of Park Ward's total production of 331 on the Silver Wraith short wheelbase chassis. Its design benefits first from the long sweeping teardrop front fenders which extend all the way back to the front of the similar but shorter teardrop rear fenders incorporating very effective rear wheel skirts. The built-in Silver Dawn-style headlights, 6 side windows, sloping beltline and roofline joining into a steeply sloped rear deck make design number 144 one of the most modern and attractive on the Silver Wraith. Finished in two shades of blue with red coachlines and matching new blue leather upholstery and Wilton carpets, this righthand drive Rolls-Royce has a 4-speed manual transmission, single center driving light, folding tables in the rear compartment, a modern Alpine stereo and air conditioning to ensure its usability in all climates and conditions. It has been thoughtfully restored and is an excellent driving automobile.
