Rolls-Royce increased the size of its smaller model steadily from the 3,127cc Twenty's introduction in 1922 through the 3,675cc 20/25 in 1929 and finally to the 4,257cc 25/30hp in 1936. Its overhead valve six-cylinder engine was nearly as smooth as its 12 cylinder counterpart the Phantom III and made about 115hp, sufficient to give 80 mph performance even with heavy closed coachwork. Its 6" narrower track and 10" shorter wheelbase suited it to Britain's congested villages and cities and narrow lanes, making it a favorite of famed drivers like T.O.M. Sopwith, Prince Bira and Sir Malcolm Campbell. The Rolls-Royce 25/30 is especially attractive with sports sedan coachwork like this 1937 Thrupp & Maberly saloon. Finished in maroon and beautifully trimmed inside with burl wood facings, it has a single side-mount, fender mirrors and a center-mounted dip beam headlight. The wheels are shrouded in polished wheel discs, aggressively setting off the black wall tires. Meticulously restored with brilliant paint, polished aluminum and chrome, an inviting interior and maintained by a full time professional mechanic in the prior owner's collection, it is a 2008 Rolls-Royce Owner’s Club Concours award as the Best Pre-War Car and is still in Concours quality condition.
