Description

car was originally sold to Finnish consul Walter Gräsbeck, who worked with Russian diplomats. When it was discovered that they were driving a Rolls Royce, the car was parked and he was permitted to drive a Russian Zil instead.
The car was sold to Baron Gustaf Woldemar Wrede, who also lived in Helsinki. It was not driven much during the war and had only traveled about 200 miles when it arrived in Sweden in 1947.

The car was sold to Captain Sven Jeansson in Kalmar by the car company Wiklunds Bil AB in Stockholm, where it became well-known and talked about. The car was fitted with CC plates when Sven Jeansson became German consul a few years later.

Mr Jeansson has traveled extensively throughout Europe by car, and has been stopped for speeding in Spain, among other places.
After Consul Jeansson's death in 1985, Sune Wreinerth in Färjestaden purchased the car and had it repainted from black to its current color. It was then displayed at Borgholm's and Rydaholm's car museums until 2005, when it was purchased by the current owner, Anders Björkman.
It has been a great source of enjoyment for the Björkman family during the summers of these years. He does, however, have other cars in his collection and believes it is time for a new enthusiast to take over and care for this lovely car.

Facts about the model

Rolls-Royce 25/30hp är en personbil, tillverkad av den brittiska biltillverkaren Rolls-Royce mellan 1936 och 1938.
1936 vidareutvecklades den lilla Rollsen återigen med större motor. Genom att borra upp cylinderdiametern till 88,9 mm ökades cylindervolymen till 4257 cm³. Effekten var nu uppe i 115 hk. Växellådan hade synkronisering på de tre högsta växlarna.
Bilen fick också ett nytt bränslesystem med en Stromberg förgasare som fick bensin
via två SU elektriska bränslepumpar.
Bilen försågs med justerbara hydrauliska stötdämpare och individuell
framvagnsupphängning. Topphastigheten ökades till cirka 135 km/h.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
