    I got to see the Round Door Rolls in the Petersen basement before it was restored. I'll try to find a video of it, it had a rough life. Bob

    Hey Joe.

    On the 1925 round door rolls, if my memory serves me, it was completely re-bodied
    some time in the mid to late 1930s. I sort of remember something written about
    it in the late 1950s or maybe '60s when it was restored?

    A quick search:

    This info came from "The New Atlas from 2012."

    The story of the original car is fascinating. The 1924 Rolls Royce Phantom l with a convertible body by Hooper was commissioned by an American lady from Detroit. The car never got to the States however, and was subsequently purchased by the Raja of Nanpara, an Indian regional potentate under British rule. It’s at this point that the vehicle was sent to the Jonckheere brothers in Belgium for its new hand-crafted body. Some reports suggest it was intended as a present for Prince Edward, but all records from the factory were lost in the war and it is not even known who originally penned the fantastic Art Deco body shape.

    There is tons of info on this car but this is how it came about.

    That RR looks like it's going 300 MPH just sitting there on the lawn.

    Meets NHRA specs to me... let it run, looks like it could make laps with that cooling system.. is that an “extra” engine in front of the radiator? The front rims are way cool for a lakes car.

    I agree too. There's nothing made today that even comes close to the class and styling of the 20's & 30's.

    Remember when I said a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle I think I would like to reconsider.

    They are still in business; I have a set on my 71 Lemans Sport. They of course do not look like that anymore. Supposedly they make custom tyres for 20" and up cars. Mine are only 17".
