1937 Rolls Royce 25/30 Limousine Windover Body 08908 (Not Warranted) £23,000.00 + buyers premium


Now bearing its original registration number DYR 682 after returning in 2001 from 10 years in USA, and unusually for a limousine bodied car, GRO-51 still retains her original body by Windovers Ltd featuring additional seating in the rear, ideal for bridesmaids.
With division, and matching engine number J29Y, GRO-51 was despatched from Rolls-Royce to Jack Berkeley Ltd, George Street, London who would supply the car to Mr John Stroyan of Lanrick Castle, Stirlingshire, Scotland after having the chassis bodied by Windovers to his specification
The Rolls-Royce was restored between 2002-2004 and has covered minimal miles since and still presents well. The brakes and servo were refurbished with new front shoes in 2018. Finished in black with white side panels, the rear passenger compartment is trimmed in West of England cloth and the drivers compartment has dark brown leather seats and door cards. It performs well with the engine showing good oil pressure and the gearbox changing without any unsavoury noises. The accompanying history file contains photocopies of the original chassis cards and order forms, photographs of the restoration and some receipts
This matching numbers and very imposing limousine is now reluctantly for sale due to the vendor having less and less time due to business commitments to drive and enjoy the car.
V5C, MOT and tax exempt.
The current vendor recently enjoyed the Goodwood Revival, a run of 150 miles, as well as weddings, local village events and Rolls Royce club meetings over the years.
