To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Amelia Island event, 10 March 2018.
Rolls-Royce Foundation documentation, which accompanies the car, records 20/25 chassis no. GTZ7 as having been originally delivered through Howard Godfrey & Company Ltd., of Piccadilly, to Mrs. Jane Hanchet-Glover, of Moscow Mansions, on Cromwell Road in London. The order sheet records that this car was for use in Great Britain and that Mrs. Hanchet-Glover "is elderly and does not use the car for fast touring, but wants springs and shock absorbers adjusted to be really comfortable for general use." Seating was provided for up to seven passengers, although it is noted that only two were usually carried, presumably the lady owner and her husband.

The car has been a resident in the U.S. since at least the early 1970s, and it has enjoyed several enthusiast owners prior to the consignor's acquisition. It underwent a photo-documented, frame-up restoration over a two-year period, during which time it was refinished in the elegant livery of black with silver fenders and a black canvas roof covering. More recently, the engine was fully rebuilt. Typical of a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce of its era, the interior is rather beautifully appointed, with grey leather to the driver's seat, narrow-striped broadcloth over the rear passenger seat, and lavish woodwork throughout. While Mrs. Hanchet-Glover may never have intended to tour in the car, the new owner will certainly have that option, thanks to the folding luggage rack and trunk provided at the rear.

With well-proportioned coachwork on an eminently usable chassis, this Rolls-Royce would make an ideal classic tour car, one that remains "really comfortable for general use."
