This is the only 1929 Rolls Royce Drop Head Coupe in existence from the Rolls Royce 1929 model year. Number matching with original block and transmission. This is a World War II survivor with complete providence since 1929. We have build sheets and a complete history of ownership from 1929 to present.This car features; chrome grille, front tilting headlamps, front fog light, rear mount luggage, white wall tires, wire wheels, electric country horn, city horn, suicide doors, vacuum turn signals, dual spare tires, additional starting carburetor, tools, steering wheel controls for mixture-throttle-ignition timing, fender mounted mirrors, flying lady hood ornament, chrome exterior trim, and windshield wipers.The first owner Ronald Arthur Yestay took delivery in November 1929. In 1937 the Drop Head had 67,000 miles and was sold to Samual Saxon Barton who was a surgeon in Liverpool. We believe Samual Saxon Barton was the second owner, but the Public Control Department records cannot be found from 1930 to 1936, possibly due to salvage records during the wars. At 84,000 miles Mr. Barton had the Drop Head sent to Derby Works for a complete chassis overhaul. In 1950 Mr. Barton sold the vehicle to Oliver Hill in London at 122,735 miles.We have a letter dated March 2, 1964, from The London County Council which lists previous English owners from 1929 to 1959. There is also US documentation with all the previous owners from 1959 to present. In 1959 David E. Cohen who was one of the previous owners imported the car from London to New York. Mr. Cohen ended up selling in September 1962 to Robert McMichael. Mr. McMichael ended up moving from New York to Richland, WA in 1964, then ended up selling the Drop Head in 1965 to Burton Wood in Corvallis, OR. In September 1966 Mr. Wood ended up restoring the Rolls Royce (resto photos on file) and selling the car.In the fall of 1976, the engine block had two minor cracks that were repaired by Adams & Oliver Ltd., in the UK. The block was also re-sleeved and bored to spec. Around 1977 the car was repainted from dark green to white. Available is an owners Book (reprint from 1933) with second owners name stamped in the book. It is believed to be the original seats and original tools. Right-hand drive and recent new soft top. Less than 3,000 of 20 horsepower Rolls Royce vehicles made from 1922 to 1929. Currently, the odometer shows 6,789 miles.For more information on this rare 1929 Rolls Royce Drop Head Coupe Convertible or any of our 50+ classic and collectible cars always in stock, please contact our friendly and knowledgeable sales team, or always feel free to stop by our Bellevue, WA Park Place Ltd campus - Where we have over 40,000 sq ft of indoor showrooms filled with the finest cars.
