1926 Rolls Royce 20hp Open Tourer by Watsons of Liverpool

Chassis number: GCK62

Registration number: Applied for.

Without doubt one of the finest Rolls Royce 20hp cars we have had the pleasure to handle.  Simply put: This car is in concours prize winning restored condition throughout.  It has been the subject of vast expenditures.

Coach-work is the original open tourer body of ample proportions by Watsons of Liverpool.  Unlike many of these tourers, the front seat is fully adjustable back & forth allowing for drivers to seat comfortably who are very long in the leg.

The interior seating & door cards are like new stone coloured leather with similar carpets & over mats. The beautifully curved mahogany dash board is equipped with a full set of working original instruments.  The exterior is maroon & black paint again in absolutley first rate condition.  The spare pleasingly is located on the rear of the car as per the dictum of sir Henry Royce himself.  Straight side tyres are fitted all round making for very light steering.  The car as a whole looks like new & also drives like new with a taut supple feel to its suspension. 

The engine bay is again detailed to show standards.  A sonorous klaxon lurks on the bulkhead.  A full flow modern oil filter is fitted for ease of maintenance.  The original undertrays are in situ.  On the running board is a tool box containing a useful selection of larger tools.  The throttle pedal has no discernable wear to it at all indicating a very low total mileage.

The best part of the car is the actual driving experience.  The engine is simply the quietest 20hp engine I have ever heard, or rather should I say not heard.  The 4 speed gear box has a very buttery with an easy to use feel to it.  The steering is precise & accurate with not a hint of free play in it.  The car has a longish rear axle allowing easy 50MPH cruising.

In addittion to the perfect  full length & wide beige canvas roof there are also a full set of side screens that locate into slots for inclement weather.  The rear window is configured to hinge up & locate to the inside of the roof with press fastner studs for use during hotter weather when using the roof as a sun shade.

If you are looking for the best money can buy then this car is a worthy contender to be considered.  We have seen its equal but not its better.
