Artist's Description

Rolls-Royce 20 HP
S.Luca of Musselburgh

Quote from there web page

Our Rolls-Royce 20 HP, one of the smallest models ever made.
She was originally built for Marques de San Miguel of Spain, as a Hooper Limousine in 1923
She then became the property of Viscount Scarsdale and, subsequently, passed through a succession of owners until 1937 when Mr Luca made his purchase from the Southern Motor Company in London.
She was then converted into what is probably the only Rolls-Royce ice cream van!
The Rolls was a familiar feature at the North Berwick outdoor swimming pool and seafront until the late 1950s, with the war years being the exception.
The chassis, engine and gearbox remain original and un-restored, although the bodywork has required maintenance, including a new fabric roof covering, and re-chroming.
