MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this rarely seen 1935 H2 series Rolls-Royce 20/25. This one of only 3,827 ever produced 20/25s and is made even more desirable and rare by the fact it’s a Barker bodied (#7007) 20/25!
By 1929 to meet a new breed of car owner, Rolls Royce decided to upgrade and improve the 20hp chassis. The very first models were for the most part a 20hp chassis with an enlarged engine, it was called the 20/25. The small-horsepower chassis was now powerful enough to carry a large saloon or limousine coachwork and it became the best selling Rolls-Royce car up until World War II.
Finished in a period Blue and Grey two tone paint scheme this Barker bodied H2 series shows good with Patina and some age. The Grey is tastefully broken up with the Blue top and fenders. The rear chrome bumpers with optional luggage rack fits well and looks good. The front grill is in very good condition, including the iconic radiator cap. All trim pieces are present including the dual fender mounted outside mirrors and have a nice finish. The period correct headlights, center driving lamp and taillights are in very condition with no hazing or cracks. The large factory sliding sunroof has a tight fit and performs as originally designed. The passenger side mounted spare tire matches the other four wheels and tires.
Inside, this 20/25 features Dark Blue Connolly leather front bucket seats and rear bench seat which are period correct and show well. The door frames, constructed of wood have the excellent fit that one would expect with a Rolls-Royce. The dash wood trim has been recently refinished, but does show some age and cracking. The matching blue and wood trim door panels and wooden dashboard are a continuation of the striking interior of this sedan and look good with the patina. The black carpet is in good shape showing normal wear. The tan headliner completes rest of the interior and is in very good condition. The weather-stripping is good, with few signs of drying, tearing or shrinkage. The original Rolls-Royce steering wheel is correct and in very good condition.
This ’35 “Rolls” is equipped with a rebuilt top end (decarbonized, fresh gaskets and valve seals, etc.) 3.7 liter inline six cylinder engine fed by a recently rebuilt single jet Rolls-Royce carburetor. Power is transferred to the wheels by a four-speed manual transmission. driver assist features internal expanding 4 wheel operation with independent handbrake on the rear wheels and mechanical servo motor driven from the gearbox. The suspension consists of semi-elliptic leaf springs front and rear, hydraulic dampers, equipped with ride control. Also included is the starter crank and hex-socket. 19-inch original grey wire wheels and polished hexagon center nuts with period correct tires.
This particular Rolls-Royce is a very nice original example of the 20/25 from the elegant pre-war days of England. From the eye catching Blue with grey exterior to the chrome “Flying Lady” hood ornament everything works together to make this one of the original “Spirits of Ecstasy” we ever seen!… GET OUT AND DRIVE!
