Rolls Royce Delivery Panel Truck 1936
Chassis #: GUL36
Engine #: T27N
Body (Original – Park Ward Limousine) #: 4185
We are pleased to present this Very unique and rare 1936 Rolls Royce Panel Van. It has well documented history and has been used for some interesting tasks.
It was special ordered by a well known British House of Parliament member and was off testing in Derby on May 4th, 1936. It was also commissioned as an Ambulance for the St. Johns Ambulance company during World War II. After the war it’s thought that Christian Dior may have used it to distribute dresses in Paris. It was last used by Gary Wales as a support vehicle for his 1936 Bentley in the 1985 Great American Race.
The current paint scheme is from the Great American Race. It is in very good, running condition and the rear area was re-fitted to a high standard in the mid-eighties by Cambria Coachworks in Woodland Hills, California. The paneling is all oak and there are 2 bar-like cabinets that house Rolls Royce shot glasses and crystal glasses and the all important Rolls Royce umbrella.
Above the windshield up front is a digital sign that hooks up to a keyboard so you can write messages seen by anyone from outside the vehicle. All of the wood is solid and there is no rust to be found on the metal.
This would be a great vehicle for the Rolls collector or for a business as an impressive marketing tool.
