Description
 
1928 Rolls Royce 20hp Windovers Weyman Saloon. Chassis number: GBM31 Registration Number TP-826 (South African.) UK being applied for. An unusual car in that it has been out of the UK almost its entire life. The car was purchased by its late last owner in South America where it had been most of its life plus a brief stint in South Africa. He shipped it to Tenerifé where due to illness it was laid up for some years. We collected the car before Christmas & bought it back in an 18ft container. The car went straight to The Priory Vintage Car co for re-commissioning & a thorough service. In addition to the usual, the side plates were removed & the sediment cleared out, the radiator back flushed & assorted other works undertaken. The result is a car which runs quietly & sweetly never showing any tendencies to get hot. Indeed we have been running it with shutters mostly closed to maintain the correct operating temperature. The chassis cards show the car going to the Clyde Motor company by way of Windovers & it wears the Windovers Weyman body to this day. The black fabric has clearly been renewed at some stage so is in super order throughout. The contrating deep burgundy wings give the car a jaunty appearance & elicits smiles from all who behold. The interior is trimmed in Beige extending to the door cars, seating & headlining. To the rear is a commodious motoring trunk. A single side mount spare sits to the passenger side running board. The dash board is delightfully shaped original wood with the requisite collection of correct instruments down to the period cigar lighter. The engine runs quietly & settles when warm to a barely turning over idle. It pulls strongly & has an aura of rude health to it.
