Description

1928 Rolls-Royce 20hp Horsfield Barrel Sided Open Tourer GXL32

A very well executed, handsome, barrel-sided tourer, bodied in the mid 1970s by Horsfields, very reminiscent of the sought-after Barker version of the 1920s. Sold by us in 2007 to enthusiastic husband & wife R.R.E.C. members, the car is now back with us from them, having been very well loved and cared for during this period. Work has included a full re-paint, re-upholstery in deep red leather, new carpets, 'double duck' hood, hood bag, tonneau cover and side screens, and re-finishing of dashboard. All bright work is correctly nickel plated and in excellent condition. Fitted with an aluminium cylinder head & the car benefits greatly from being fitted with an overdrive, having a relaxing effect on long distance drives, as well as increasing significantly the comfortable cruising speed. A partial engine overhaul, including re-bore & new pistons, new clutch, new starter ring gear, and much more besides, not to mention regular servicing & much love & attention generally during the same ownership. The car is now running very nicely, well-proportioned in design, very smart, and ready to begin a new chapter in its life of 90+ years so far.  MoT tested until July 2021.

Snippets: Chocolates & Rugby, Collieries & Cricket.

Albert Magnus Fry (1857/1938) took delivery of GXL32 when he was 71 years old.  Albert was a scion of the innovative Quaker family best known for their chocolates – Albert was a director of J & S Fray Ltd and also of the Bristol Wagon & Carriage Works.  Albert was a keen rugby player and in his youth played for Clifton RFC & Gloucestershire; his brother George and cousins Leslie & Francis also played for Clifton during their youth.  George Fry (engineer) died on the 13th of September 1938 & Albert passed away a week later on the 20th of September 1938. The 2nd name on the chassis cards is that of Capt. John Charles Burgoyne-Johnson of Dulford House in Devon.  The Burgoyne-Johnson family were Colliery & Brewery owners, with all 5 brothers serving their country during both WWI & WWII.  Luther Vincent (1890/1915) MC was killed in action whilst serving with the Durham Light Infantry; Francis (1892/1968) also served with the Durhams of which the C/O was their father!, Reginald Percy (1895/1963) joined  the Royal Field Artillery & George Harold was with the Royal Flying Corps.  In WWII the youngest brother - our John Charles - served with the Royal Artillery, he wasn’t old enough to serve in WWI as he was born in 1913 & was just 7 years old when his father died. Luther & Francis played county cricket with their father being involved with Durham Rugby Football Club.
