Rolls Royce 20hp Doctor's Coupe (1923)

This delightful and well-sorted ‘Twenty’ Coupe is in worn but excellent condition and a pleasure to drive even in modern traffic; a tribute to its makers of some 94 years ago. It has an interesting history having the original matching engine and front half of the original Park Ward body and with the back being variously a saloon and a pick-up before remaking with an early 20’s two-seater plus dickey body.

Following tidying by ourselves it is now ready to be used and comes with copies of its build sheet, historic details and a Handbook.
This RR ‘Twenty’ , chassis GH-27, was despatched from the Factory on 18th Dec 1923, fitted with a Park Ward Limousine body and first registered in February 1924 to E J Glaze & Co of Birmingham. There are documents detailing all work over the next 10 years by which time it was owned by a Thomas Neilson in Norfolk. Post-War it was in Dorset and by the 1950’s had been modified to become ‘the best pick-up in the world’ by a somewhat eccentric practically-minded art teacher. In the early 1980’s it was owned by Clarenden Garage Co. of London who we believe undertook the renovation and fitted the 1920’s coupe body matched to the original V-fronted cab. In 2009 it was purchased by Frank Romano of New Jersey and returned to the UK in September 2016. The car still has its original engine and its original registration number was retained. It also has the 6 original artillery wheels (still an option in 1923) and the wheel- extractor but has lost the other more general RR ‘Twenty’ tools (which may give the new owner some quality time searching the internet).
The car is now available to be seen at our premises at Drem Airfield, East Lothian, Scotland.
