Rolls-Royce 25/30 Sedanca de Ville – 1937

This magnificent and rare car, by Gurney Nutting chassis N° GXM25 believe to be one of two such cars produced on the 25/30 chassis, is therefore light and extremely manoeuvrable with responsive
acceleration and firm but supple suspension. This fabulous car is without any doubt the best driving pre-war Rolls Royce.
The rolling chassis with no GXM25 and 4250 cc engine, 6 cylinder in line, gearbox was driving out of the Rolls Royce factory July 4, 1936, and delivered to the renowned coachbuilder Gurney Nutting to be delivered on 5-9-1937.
All documents from that date as the guarantee, interviews, original first invoices from Rolls Royce London were carefully guarded.
The car comes to us with a large history file is featured in the book: “Those Elegant Rolls Royce, with a picture of the car and his chassis number. It also has an original hand book and all the original tools and details.
The details of the Gurney Nutting builder are marvelous. Look at one of the last photo’s, you see the automatic mechanical sunscreen for the rear screen, 1 push open, 1 push close. Also the canvas top has superb technical details.
The car has been in long term ownership and during that time has benefited from numerous works to keep the car in tip top condition. Only three owners are known. Although the owner before who
has maintained and garaged this rare Rolls Royce in Kent as part of a collection of 20 or so other Rolls Royce, the actual owner further refined the car to the perfection.
Exterior paint is deep blue over black is in excellent condition. The Sedanca canvas top is also perfect, unfurls from a hidden compartment in the front of the roof. The car has twin side mounts
fitted, a pair of trumpet horns to the front.
The interior is grey leather piped in blue. It has some minor patination but is in excellent all-around condition. The rear compartment has one occasional seat folding from the bulkhead. to the opposite
side is a fold out footrest. Between the two is a small cocktail cabinet with twin glasses, a decanter.
Twin vanity alcoves are mounted with recessed mirrors reading lights. All interior woodwork is in fine order. All the original tools are available.
The engine bay is detailed, in show condition. The car starts instantly and runs silently. All large tools are in their appointed places. The original bakelite coil covers are also correctly mounted. The car I
must stress is mechanically superb ready for the seasons motoring. The actual owner made 8000 miles in the last year without one problem. The radiator shutters still operate perfectly through a
thermostat and the car has also new tires and a new overdrive who allowed to cruse at 110 or 120km/hour.
