This 1929 Rolls-Royce, # GX03, is a fine example of a Rolls Royce 20. Marketed by Rolls-Royce as their small car, the 20 was intended for the “owner-driver.” Many were purchased by estates and/or chauffeurs to be used as an around-the-town and estate vehicle. This 1929 Rolls Royce “Shooting Brake” 20 was re-bodied by Alpe & Saunders coach builders of Surrey England in the 1950’s. At that time the bonnet was also slightly lengthened and the engine was rebuilt. New tires were installed in 2006. As a body style, the term shooting brake combines late 19th century British terminology. “Shooting Brake” generally referred to a vehicle used to carry shooting parties and their game, the term “brake” commonly referred to a chassis used to break-in spirited horses. As the automobile emerged, the term brake was applied to an automobile chassis as well. The term was later applied to custom made wagons by high-end coach builders, and generally referred to as “estate wagons.” This vehicle is sold with a title.
