1933 Rolls-Royce

20/25 Park Ward D Back Saloon
39,500.00 GBP

Description

1933 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Park Ward D Back Saloon

A handsome, spacious and correct saloon, which has benefitted greatly from various attention in recent times, including a new cylinder head, re-cored radiator with new calorstat, new clutch and ring gear, starter and dynamo overhauled, attention to brakes, complete re-upholstery in lovely, soft but durable brown leather, new headlining, carpets, roof covering, etc, and much more besides. Many thousands of pounds have beem spent on the car over the last few years. The car is equipped with correct lamps, etc, is in sound condition, running well. Ideally now needs painting to really sharpen up the appearance, although the car is perfectly useable 'as is' for the time being. All in all, a very appealing and good looking D-back, with character and charm.

Snippets:  Brewery Heir & Winston Churchill’s In Law & the Peel connection

Ordered by Capt. Arthur Granville Soames, nephew of a wealthy Lincolnshire brewer Arthur Gilstrap Soames!  In 1919, aged 65, Uncle A. G. Soames married Agnes Helen Peel, granddaughter of Sir Robert Peel (Prime Minister 1834/5 & 1841/6).  It would seem that from the marriage Arthur & Agnes had two young sons but in 1934 when Arthur Gilstrap Soames died he left his estate - Sheffield Park – to his nephew Captain A. G. Soames & not to his two sons.  In 1947 Arthur Granville Soames’ son  Christopher married Mary Churchill, the daughter of Winston Churchill & in 1989 Christopher & Mary’s daughter Charlotte married William Peel (3rd Earl Peel) who was the great-great-grandson of Sir Robert Peel making them related by marriage and by blood!  During the 18th Century, the grounds of Sheffield Park were landscaped by Capability Brown with the house being remodelled by James Wyatt, in 1909 the estate was bought by A. G. Soames Snr who spent a great deal of his fortune on the restoration of the estate &  during WWII the estate had Nissen huts on the once immaculate lawns!  After 50 years in the hands of the Soames family, due to various financial grounds, the estate was split into lots with the house & grounds sold separately, fortunately the National Trust bought the grounds which are today open to the public.  GBA8 was later registered to the Adelphi Iron Works in Salford; now part of the Fletcher Engineering Group, specialists in the installation & commissioning of textile finishing machinery.  A further 15 years saw GBA8 being purchased by Brigadier A Matthews who was stationed at Bishton Manor in Salop which during WWII was used by H.M. Royal Regiment of Artillery.  The Brigadier moved to the West Indies and GBA8 was left in storage for several years until it was bought by Dr. J. Dobell who in turn sold the car to Arthur Cyril Smith, Rector of Louth, who became Archdeacon of Lincoln from 1960 – 1976.  Whilst Arthur Smith was still Rector of Louth he wrote the book “South Ormsby Experiment” which was described as “an Adventure in Friendship
