Sedan
Coachwork: Freestone & Webb
This car was the Show Car for Rolls-Royce Motors at its stand in the 1939 Earl's Court Motor Show, just before the outbreak of World War II. It was a departure from past Rolls-Royce design. It came equipped with independent front suspension (by license from General Motors' Cadillac division). It has centralized lubrication, Servo power brakes and 4 built-in hydraulic jacks operated from the passenger compartment. It can cruise along effortlessly at 65/70 MPH.

Freestone & Webb coachbuilders were pioneers in the new 'Knife Edge' body designs.

The Rolls-Royce was originally delivered to a Baronet in the Spring of 1940. The car has participated and driven on several Classic Car Club 'CARavans.'
