Hooper & Co. Rolls-Royce 25-30 HP Sports Saloon
Hooper & Co. Rolls-Royce 25-30 HP Sports Saloon
10.0/10 rating (2 votes)
No video selected.


Introduced in the spring of 1936, the 25/30 joined the 20/25, then replaced it within a year. The main difference was an increase in displacement to 4,257 cc for better performance. Estimated to produce some 115 bhp, it propelled the car to about 120 km/h. All Rolls-Royces of the time were delivered as a rolling chassis to be dressed by the many coachbuilders around.

Hooper's workmanship was of the finest calibre, and nothing was too much trouble to cater for a customer's desire. Inlaid mahogany, ivory or silver-plated fittings were commonplace, and great care was taken on all commissions, regardless of whether they were on Phantom chassis or the less-expensive 20 hp cars. A popular style on the 25/30 chassis was the Sports Saloon, pictured here. Of this body type several variations were produced in the 1936-39 period.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
