A delightful vintage Rolls Royce 20 HP Weymann Saloon carrying its original cabriolet saloon body by Weymann. The Rolls Royce 20HP Weymann Saloon is pictured on page 307 of John Fasals authoritative tome, The Rolls Royce 20.

The Rolls Royce 20HP Saloon was initially sold by Rootes Ltd of Devonshire House, Piccadilly, to a Mr H Leeson of Hastings, E. Sussex. It was then transferred to a Dr Ind in Sittingbourne, Kent and then to a Mr Sully located in Bristol in 1933. In 1936 it was sold to the Rt. Hon. Earl of Kilmorey, Newry, County Down, Northern Ireland and then to a Mr Oliver in Holywood, Co. Down, N. Ireland.

The next known location was Port Elizabeth in South Africa, where it was found in the 1960s by a Mr Ernest Heunis. The vehicle was restored by him in Pretoria, South Africa, and bore the South African registration number TP 8126.

The Rolls Royce 20HP Saloon was returned to London in 1999 (see attached) by Christies International Motor Cars Ltd and re-registered with the registration number SV9928. It was sold to a Mr Raymond Foley in Saundersfoot Pembrokeshire, Wales, and then to a Mr Paul Haxell, Coulsdon, South London in 2004. It was bought by a Mr Ian William Charles Spencer, Chalfont St. Giles, Buckinghamshire, in 2015 and by the current owner in 2017.

The Rolls Royce is finished in maroon over black and has been carefully looked after. The interior is black leather with the trim being well polished and in good condition. Black carpets complete the ensemble. The Rolls Royce 20HP Weymann Saloon has a non-division body well suited to an owner-driver with adjustable front seats. It carries faux pram irons to the rear giving the appearance of a cabriolet body. Under the body it is clean and tidy and has been well cared for. A file of bills and correspondence comes with the Rolls Royce 20HP Weymann Saloon.

Mechanically the Rolls Royce 20HP Weymann Saloon is in fine order throughout with a lovely quiet engine and a delicate tactile feel to the controls. The Rolls Royce on the whole feels very taut and does not appear to have done a high mileage. The rear window is unusually large giving excellent visibility. At the rear is a commodious luggage trunk.

Location: Derbyshire, England.
