It has been updated later. It is both in the Rippon official ledger, was shown on the 1929 Motor Show in Olympia, London. The recent book on Rippon also shows this car with the following description: 'This Rippon-bodied Rolls-Royce Phantom II (20WJ) limousine was the 1929 motor show car. Stylistically, the company had belatedly dispensed with the divided windscreen that appeared at previous shows. Woodsome Hall Golf Club opened in 1923 and is in the background and this location would provide a suitably opulent setting for Rippons publicity photographs throughout the following decade.'
Below the interior.

Sorry, Tommy, this is not a body by Lawton..
