1937 Rolls Royce

Seems like a lot of car for the money even if it is a bit boxy and sharp cornered. If it were closer I would go see how it’s ride was... make a great limo for weddings.

Agreed. Not one of RR's finer examples.

From the front 3/4 it's really not bad looking. Unfortunately, from the rear it looks like a garbage truck.  The primer gray color in and out does the styling no favors either. Maybe a little softer on the 30K firm would help too.

The easiest styling cue to go off of is the height of the greenhouse.   In general, when you see a low greenhouse you think "cool" and when you see a "high hat" you think "blah".   Still,  a neat car from RR lower end.

Very good observations. This one, as my wife would say, was unfortunate.

If that price is Canadian dollar then it’s around $22,000 USD. Granted it is a bit homely but I don’t think you will see another for less. That being said, I wouldn’t trust it not to be a scam going by other advertised prices...

Many years ago I handled the sale of a similar car for a friend that that was called out of town after he had agreed to show his car - the potential buyer was driving from Chicago to Rhode Island to look at it. I have to admit that the car did not have the most stylish body - but otherwise, it was literally almost new. Original paint, original interior - I have no idea what the mileage was but it cannot have been much and it must have been pampered the entire time. The chassis was clean because it had never gotten dirty. It ran so quietly that once I had to grab the arm of an idiot at a car show who insisted that it wasn't running - and tried to stick his hand between the engine and the radiator ... to "prove" it!

 

So perhaps it wasn't the sportiest car - I'm reminded of Edinmass's several comments on how few "100 point" classics are truly sorted and run as they should and wonder if the incessant emphasis on form over function isn't a little self-defeating.
