Registration Number: JK4111
Chassis Number: GYD22
GYD 22 is a superb example of a Rolls-Royce 20/25 which is well known throughout Europe, particularly in R.R.E.C. circles, and has attended a wide range of events with its fastidious owner. Most recently, it has completed a tour of France & the Alsace region in addition to a run to Devon.
Chassis GYD 22 was supplied in August 1934 by Rolls-Royce to Windovers Ltd. where it received a saloon body for its first owner from Eastbourne. A comprehensive restoration was commissioned in 2005 including the creation of a fabulous Three Position Drophead body in the style of those produced in period by Windovers complete with a new fully lined mohair hood and a new leather upholstered interior. Following this restoration the owner describes GYD 22 as being in superb overall condition.
Mechanically, GYD 22 is described as in excellent working order with a total mileage, of just 76,100. The history file includes various MoT certificates dating from 2001 and UK V5. This charming Three Position Drophead oozes pre-war charm, and remains a vehicle in which to take great pride and satisfaction at a more affordable price than an original. The paint is in beautiful condition with a fetching two tone colour scheme complimented by the blue roof.
On the road the car drives beautifully pulling strongly in all gears & with a taut feel to the controls that one only finds on low mileage examples. The boot is capacious allowing for plenty of luggage. The car boasts twin side mounted spares giving an imposing frontal appearance. We had a puncture on the day of photography so only one is pictured. Large doors make for easy ingress & egress. The rear seats are commodious making the car a true four seat tourer. All woodwork is in hew highly polished condition.
