One of one 1933 Rolls-Royce 20/25 with one-off body built by iconic coach-builder Fernandez et Darrin of Paris. Ordered by and built for JD Hague, Esq of San Francisco. Order and build documents included with this stunning California car.

Purchased locally by the current owner in 2004, the car was shipped to nearby Sonoma Wine Country and put directly in storage. Complete high-quality restoration several years ago, presumably in the 1990's. Properly stored with little wear and recently serviced and made road-ready and drivable.

According to Darrin, decisions at Fernandez & Darrin were made with an absolute disregard for cost. Beauty, utility, and safety were the firm's prime considerations, so it's not surprising that a staff of 200 produced less than ten finished bodies per month. Darrin recalled that most of the firm's sales were in the 125,000 to 1,000,000 francs range, roughly $10,000 - $40,000, depending on the body style and whether the customer supplied the chassis or not. The firm's most popular chassis were built by Delage, Hispano-Suiza, and Isotta-Fraschini. They even produced a small series of semi-custom bodies for Isotta that were sold by the firm's European and British distributors although prohibitive tariffs prevented the coachwork from imported to Italy. They also built on Bentley, Bugatti, Buick, Delahaye, Duesenberg, Hispano-Suiza, Maybach, Mercedes­-Benz, Packard, Panhard, Renault, Rolls-Royce and Voisin chassis.
