It would seem likely to be a 20/25, since the 25/30 did not commence until 1936, and the 20 had finished by 1930, even allowing for coach building.

My other problem is that an almost straight on front view is not the most conducive to accurate coachwork identification.

Is P2 possible??

^ Not if 3,666cc is anywhere near to correct. The P2 was 7,668cc.

1. The correct cubic capacity of a 20/25 is 3669cc. The 3666cc quoted by the DVLA would suggest a typo, rather than any other reason, imo.

2. It may not be totally idiot-proof, in fact, if I am using it that cannot be, but…

I look at the side mounted spare, if present. How much of the distance between the front wheel and the projection downwards of the a-pillar does this occupy? The change of the size of the wheels between a P2 and a 20/25 is relatively small, but the change in the distance between the c/l of the front wheel and the a-pillar is greater in proportion, so, if the sidemount takes up most of that space, I go small horsepower, if a lesser amount, Phantom.

Alles klar?

Yes - I can follow the logic. I was intrigued by the mirror-like "frozen waterfall" grille which made me think of P2, but further googling shows some 20/25 had it as well. And in the pics of P2 I've now found with it, the grille is taller - random example.

From the 20/25 pics I've browsed, this seems a taller body than most, and unusual for having a distinct break in roof profile - unbroken profile (whether flat or smooth curve) seems more common and probably more stylish.

As ever with these things I'm only dabbling without expecting success, particularly as the plate seems a dead end, but I was intrigued by this 1934 20/25 Joseph Cockshoot Sports Saloon [GUB21] for looking reasonably similar.

Door handles?

Also, could it be convertible and become an open drive limousine/coupé de ville?

BTW. The radiator shutters were just that. They were capable of changing angle like a vertical Venetian blind, and attached to a bimetallic element that communicated with the water in the radiator. Cold engine, shutters closed, as the subject picture; hot engine, shutters open to admit cooling air. Postwar, this costly and somewhat fragile arrangement was superseded by the in-hose thermostat which impeded the water flow, rather than the air flow.

Hence the change in appearance from mirror like to that of gappy teeth!
