Further Info:

This delightful-looking 20/25 was built to the order of Joseph Cockshoot & Co of Manchester on behalf of their customer Leonard Tweedale of Rochdale. Its Sports Saloon body, No. 7639, was constructed by Hooper & Co to design No. 5068, complete with sunroof and side-mounted spare wheels. Domiciled in the USA for some years, `NJR 210' was repatriated in the early 1990s by The Real Car Company. A ground-up restoration was then commenced by David Hemmingway of Buxton before being purchased by the vendor in 1992 as a part-finished project. The work was completed with the help of Classic Car Restorations and has included: replacement timber framework by David Templeman; repaint; retrim; rechrome; rewire; complete new exhaust system; comprehensive engine overhaul; fresh wheel bearings and brake linings, and the restoration of all six wheels. Resplendent in Claret over Maroon and trimmed in Grey hide, the Rolls now seeks a caring new keeper.
