Description

1929 Rolls-Royce 20 HP Sedanca De Ville By Windovers. Delivered new to Windovers Ltd on the 29th January 1929, and specified with raked steering column, standard levers and nickel fittings, ‘GLN62’ was fitted with elegant and rakish Sedanca De Ville coachwork – it arrived with its first custodian S. F. C. Allen Esq of Buckingham Gate, London, just a month later. A continuation folding logbook issued in March 1962 shows a change of ownership to George Arthur Griffin Esq in 1967. A wealthy Shropshire-born entrepreneur and former racing team boss whose ‘Dart Spring Company’ produced and sold more than 200, 000 springs each and every day. A prolific collector of pre-war cars; a biography of Griffin and photograph of ‘UL 2631’ features in Peter Hugo’s 1973 title – ‘Private Motor Car Collections of Great Britain’ in which describes the car as being “completely original throughout”. In more recent times, the car has been maintained meticulously and invoices dating back to the 1980s are included within the large history file – previous keepers even retaining expired tax disks and MOT certificates. Specified from new with some extremely rare fittings, this 20hp still wears its unusual Stephen Grebel headlights with dipping mechanism. Admired by the rich and famous; Hollywood movie-star Sylvester ‘Rocky’ Stallone chose this actual car to deliver him to Blenheim Palace for his wedding ceremony to Jennifer Flavin in 1997. The event was of course well-documented and a photograph appeared on the front cover of ‘The Sun’ newspaper, a copy of which is included in the history file. In recent years the car has been treated to more than £17, 000 of expenditure which included an engine rebuild by McPheat Automotive and reupholstery of the back seat by Loungy Upholstery Ltd. Offered with a comprehensive history file, comprising a copy of the original construction and test records, continuation folding log book, invoices dating back to the 1980s and a period instruction book. Running and driving very well in all respects and presented in beautiful condition throughout, this charming 20 HP would make a welcome addition to any collection.
