Description

1926 Rolls-Royce 20hp

Chassis No.  GCK7

A charming example, full of character, with interesting features such as ‘V’ windscreen, scuttle-mounted sidelights, low level RB50 headlights, correct, 23” wheels (included the rear-mounted spare), and a roof vent in the rear compartment. The coachwork is tall and formal, still in its original black & white colour scheme, with styling typical of Rippon. The car has been with one owner for the last 32 years, comes with a run of MoT certificates going back to 1986, and having been idle for the last few, is currently being re-commissioned, serviced and prepared for the return to the road.

 

 Chassis No.  GCK7                Reg. No.  CX 7659        

 

Snippets: The Walkers – Mills & a Military Cross

Herbert Walker (1871/1933) was a scion of the Walker family from Huddersfield who owned several textile mills including Woodhouse Mill in Huddersfield & fabric dyeing works in Halifax.  When Herbert’s father, John Lee Walker died in 1905 he left £66,842 – a sum that today that would be in excess of £7million!  Two of Herbert’s earlier relatives had served as Mayors of Huddersfield - Arthur Walker 1878/80 & John Lee Walker during 1895/97. Herbert’s cousin Captain John Walker Clapham served with the West Riding Regiment during WWI and was twice court marshalled (drunkenness & drinking out of hours followed at a later date of being AWOL & escaping from lawful custody!) however, in 1917 Capt. Clapham was awarded the Military Cross for his conspicuous gallantry & devotion to duty.  The Captain obviously had a rebellious streak as in 1939 he was fined £25 for dangerous driving and on another occasion fined £5 for assaulting a police officer!  Herbert Walker died in June 1933 aged just 62 during his stay at the Hotel Metropole in Brighton; his widow Catherine and his cousin Capt John Walker Clapham were the executors of his estate (some £137,000 which at today’s rate would be circa £9m).  It is not known how long the car was with the family for but the chassis cards show that in 1955 GCK7 was with John Hopkins of Arkley in Hertfordshire.
