1928 Vauxhall 20/60 news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: RPA023931
|Sold for $148,500 at 2011 RM Auctions.|
The Hurlingham boattail speedster had a sculpted tail, festooned with a single-passenger dickey seat, which offered the occupant a personal vee-configuration windscreen once ensconced. Since this bodystyle was most likely be used as a touring car, they were given taller gearing and higher compression.
This example was purchased from the Abba Kogan collection in 2004. In 2007, it was shown at the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance where it earned the People's Choice award in the 'Concours Europa' event, just weeks after taking the 'Best Boat Tail' award at the Newport Concours, where boat tail cars were featured. The current owners purchased the car in 2008 and properly prepared it for extensive vintage touring.
The wood sub-frame for the body was rebuilt, and the car was treated to a high level of cosmetic presentation. Several modern modifications were made but were done in such a way that they could be reversed in the future.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Monterey auction in California presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $150,000 - $200,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $148,500, including buyer's premium.
