1936 Rolls-Royce 25/30 Limousine

1936 Rolls-Royce 25/30 Limousine
28,600.00 USD
1936 Rolls-Royce 25/30 Limousine LOT: 026 Chassis No. C23A Sold at a price of $28,600 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 29.4bhp, (RAC) six-cylinder 4,257cc, overhead pushrod valves, Stromberg downdraught carburetors, fourspeed gearbox with synchromesh third and fourth gears, semi-elliptic front and rear suspension with hydraulic shock dampers and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 132" The example offered here is a right hand drive model that remains in very near original condition and retains its original solid and reliable engine. The Rolls-Royce is finished in black over burgundy, with gold trim lines, and complemented by a charming interior done in brown leather and wool carpets. Bodied as a Limousine, this example would have had some of the most luxurious coachwork that was available at the time. It has original “suicide” opposite opening doors and a glass divider, with individual trays – the occupants were clearly traveling first class. The vehicle also features a flip forward, front windshield, as well as fender mounted mirrors, dual side mounted spares and B-pillar semaphore mechanical flush mounted turn signals. The paint appears to be largely original and considering its age, in excellent condition. The engine registers 41,000 miles, very likely original, and is equipped with the original wheel wrench and onboard jack system lever. Unfortunately, other original tools housed in the engine bay are missing. A highly original Mayfair bodied Rolls-Royce, this car is in excellent condition and is certainly worth viewing in person. Mayfair only produced the coachwork for Rolls-Royce from 1935 to 1937 making this a very rare and desirable example of a 25/30 Rolls-Royce motor car.

1953 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV Limousine

1953 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV Limousine
1953 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV Limousine Coachwork by Hooper Used bt His Highness Abdul Illah, Prince Regent of Iraq One of the rarest Rolls-Royce motorcars ever built - and the only model to be factory equipped with a straight-eight engine - the Phantom IV was available exclusively to royalty and heads-of-state. Only seventeen were delivered to customers when they were new. This car carries the only example of this style of Hooper coachwork fitted to a Phantom IV. It was built to the order of His Highness Abdul Illah, the Prince Regent of Itaq for the coronation of his nephew, the King. Unfortunately, the Prince was assassinated in 1959 in the revolution that eventually brought Saddam Hussein to power. At the time of the uprising, the car was at Hooper's in London for servicing and was saved as a result. The Phantom IV is so highly refarded that, of the seventeen cars delivered new to customers, eight are still owned by their original purchasers or their heirs.

1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Empress Limousine by Hooper

1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Empress Limousine by Hooper
93,500.00 USD
1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Empress Limousine by Hooper RM Auctions Automobiles of Amelia Island Collector Car Auction Amelia Island, Florida March 13, 2010 AUCTION RESULTS: Lot 163 - Sold at a price of $93,500 125 bhp, 4,887 cc overhead valve inline six-cylinder engine, single downdraft carburetor, automatic four-speed transmission, independent wishbones and coil springs front and semi-elliptic leaf spring rear suspension and four-wheel hydraulic brakes. Wheelbase: 134" The Silver Wraith was available in two wheelbase sizes – approximately 1,244 examples were built with the 127-inch short wheelbase while only 639 models were built with the 134-inch long wheelbase. For the first time, Rolls-Royce products were offered as complete cars with factory coachwork, however in the tradition of the great prewar coachbuilt cars, the Silver Wraith was also offered as a "chassis only" by Rolls-Royce. The price for the chassis alone was £1,800. These special cars were fitted with custom coachbuilt bodies by many of England's most respected coachbuilders of the period, such as H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward, Freestone and Webb, and of course Hooper. The Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith presented here, chassis number ELW-60, is an Empress Limousine with design number 8390 and is one of only 13 coachbuilt examples built by the Hooper Company on the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith chassis. This stately example was originally commissioned by a Mr. Gwinn, Chairman of the Libby Ball Bearings company. After only a year in England, it made its way to the United States and into a collection in Chicago before being purchased by a collector in Florida. The Wraith remained unused in Florida for approximately 25 years before it was acquired by the previous owner and finally by the O'Quinn Collection in 2006. The coachwork on this particular Hooper limousine is hand formed aluminum over a wooden skeleton. It has a uniquely sporting appearance and is a stylistic departure from the normal bodies of the period, as it was fashionable at the time to build rather tall and sometimes cumbersome looking limousines. The curved beltline originating at the iconic Rolls-Royce radiator stretches elegantly down to the bottom of the rear trunk. The black fenders, trunk and upper body's striking contrast with the bright yellow lower body further accentuates the Rolls-Royce's lines. The Empress Limousine's brilliant exterior lines are in step with its opulent interior, finished in silver-grey leather in the chauffeur's compartment and matching silver-grey cloth in the rear passenger compartment. The interior is adorned with an abundance of hand-polished and ornate woodwork. The rear passenger's compartment features a center console with an elaborate vanity unit with a telescopic mirror and independent climate controls. The previous owner purchased the Empress Limousine in the early 1990s and immediately embarked on an extensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration, which took nearly 10 years to complete. The mechanical restoration included a complete rebuild of the engine, a new radiator and the replacement of many suspension components. The interior heating and air conditioning units were returned to proper working order. Cosmetically, the car received all new paint and fully refinished brightwork throughout. Following completion, it was rewarded with several wins at a number of prestigious shows and events throughout America. The car continues to present very well, both inside and out. No imperfections are readily apparent in the paint, brightwork, upholstery or wood. If one considers that nearly 2,000 Silver Wraiths were built in all, this particular Empress – one of only 13 Hooper examples – is a tremendously rare automobile. In excellent overall condition, it is the epitome of English elegance and the bespoke luxury of the Hooper coachworks.
