In Tom Clarke's book on the 20/25 there is no mentioning of a car bodied by Gläser and this one looks very odd to me.

Yes, very strange to me too. Most likely a second body. Let's wait for more info.

Also no mention of Rolls-Royce in Mirsching's book on this coachbuilder.

Just found the numberplate on the, later placed, third picture at Traumautoarchiv.de, i think Scandinavian: DE 42023. Maybe it will help finding the chassis number and history (see picture).

Same car. It is a 20/25, not a Phantom like the article suggests.

And why Gläser? Some local rebuilt would also be possible. Is it so difficult a quick look under the hood to look at the chassis number? that would solve easily the history. I'll trace the 20-25 that went to Norway :eek:

One more picture of it with different reg. number.
The chassisnumber is #GFE24 which started of as a H.J. Mulliner Sedanca de Ville.
