1928 Rolls-Royce 20hp Compton Sports Saloon
Chassis number: GBM35
Registration number: YX3219
Chassis GBM 35 was ordered in April 1928 by the world famous coachbuilders Hooper who fitted their own Weymann bodywork. This consisted of a saloon with a division. The car was completed and then purchased by P.D. Griffith as described in John Fasals book ‘The Rolls Royce 20’.
In 1936 the car was part exchanged at Jack Barclay for a later model. In September that year Jack Barclay sold GBM 35 to coachbuilder J. Compton of South London. The original invoice for this sale of £162.10 shillings, signed by Jack Barclay himself, is included in the auction within the cars history file. J Compton & sons of Crystal Palace, rebodied the car to the design we see today with an up-to-date four door sports saloon style and enclosed spare wheel.
The car still has the original Compton door plates, full-size metal sunroof and working semaphores. The car has been retrimmed in beautiful red leather which presents as new. Likewise the car was the recipient of a full respray in Maroon & black & presnts beautifully.
The former registered owner of 16 years, Mr Alan Duke, now sadly deceased, purchased the car from his neighbour and world renowned guru on Rolls-Royce 20HP, John Fasal.
Accompanying this Rolls-Royce is a selection of tools, toolbox, owners’ handbook with the original order and build sheets. The car comes with a current V5c Document. Currently the car is in germany as part of a small colletion of fastidiously maintained vehicles & she may be viewed there by appointment.
Frankly though the condition is such that it may be confidently bought sight unseen & we can simply deliver to the new onwers address as part of the deal in our covered trailer. Alterntively do as I did repartiating the last two 20hps to come in & fly out to drive it home via the Hook of Holland ferry.
