A really exceptional 20/25 with spacious Hooper Sports Saloon coachwork. We first saw this car about 10 years ago in the collection of the late Helmut Krogman of the hanseatic port of Lubeck standing next to his silver Ghost. The car had just come out of a fastidious restoration including a bare metal respray & a full engine & mechanical rebuild.
The car is finished in royal claret over black with the paint being in lovey order. To the interior is brand new maroon hide along with brand new red carpets. The burr walnut has also been removed & refinished. The car has done very very few miles since restoration as it was part of a collection of 15 or so cars with Krogman being the only driver.
On the road it drives beautifully. Taut play free steering, a powerful silent engine, smooth gear changes & a pleasant undulating ride would sum it up
Mechanically the car is in spot on condition. The engine starts readily & runs cool at 75 or so degrees with excellent oil pressure. The one shot lubrication system is connected & working correctly. We have conducted a service upon it due to its lack of use since Mr Krogmans passing a few years ago. Regrettably The car came to us with not a scrap of paperwork other then the German registration. Having handled othe cars from the collection, we can attest to the high standards of work that Krogman had done to the cars he owned.
This is a very very late 20/25 being completed in 1936. It wears very spacious coachwork by hooper of a design more commonly found on 25/30's. The boot is very large allowing for carriage of an assortment of suitcases for touring. The car also has a large sunroof which easily slides open affording the occupants semi alfresco motoring. The quality of the Leather inside is superb with lovely document pouches fitted to the door cards.
If I were to fault the car it would be on the ghastly modern fuel gauge fitted where the original was. We are currently looking for a correct period unit to replace this but do not guarantee to have found one prior to sale, although a trip to Beaulieu may rectify this. Indicators & flashers are fittted to the car in deference to the German Tuff Test.
To sum up; This is a fine car in way way above average condition which clearly has had massive money spent upon it leaving it wanting for nothing. (Other then a correct petrol Gauge). It should afford the new owner years of trouble free motoring.
