1929 Rolls-Royce 20HP Limousine De Ville by Belvalette of Boulogne

1929 Rolls-Royce 20HP Limousine De Ville by French coachbuilder, Belvalette of Boulogne
Presented in Grey over Embassy black with light beige soft leather piped in plum with matching plum carpets. Occasional seats, brandy cabinet, burr walnut timber work, sliding division. twin side-mounted spares. Tools and original books. This delightful late 20hp was ordered by Mr James Hazen Hyde, a legendary American billionaire, son of Henry Baldwin Hyde, the founder of the Equitable Life Assurance Society, for his wife Marthe*, Countess de Gontaut-Biron, for their Paris home at Rue Adolphe Yvon. He commissioned Parisian coachbuilder Belvalette to body this Rolls-Royce who delivered it in July 1929. He fled France in 1941, and this Rolls-Royce was hidden from the German invaders at a rural location with a Phantom II, Voisin and Bugatti. At some point in the 1950's the car was acquired by Colonel Dangerfield OBE, who used it for three years as his personal transport whilst stationed in Vienna before being acquired by LT Colonel Forbes Stuart who used it for a further two years in Vienna. It was acquired by another British officer who returned with the car to Lancashire in 1958 and sold it to a friend, and moved to Cheshire in 1981 with the intention of restoring the Rolls-Royce, which had been unused since 1971. A large number of spares and boxes of original parts come with the car. There is a very extensive history portfolio including the original order when new, books, driver manuals and books, correspondence from owners and photographs.
