It is really tempting to call this as a Rolls-Royce 20/25 the wheels and spinners and the shape of the back fit.

Not quite the same.

Exposed door hinges, maybe different boot handle and rear window shape - any other differences? Did Hooper 20/25s vary in little details?? Or did Hooper put this body on anything else?

I was using this purely as an example, and to show the wire wheels and spinners.

It is necessary to have a completely different mind set with coachbuilt cars, especially R-R and B. They did not approach mass production, or even production runs, about the most numerous would be the late thirties Park Ward bodies on the cars. Even these would be subject to the whims of the first owner, and as far as the lower volume coachbuilders were concerned, you bought the chassis, tailored to your needs, and could then tell the man how to build his coachwork, within some fairly elastic limits set by the chassis producer. Lights, door handles, locks etc were all to your requirements if you wished.

Look at the various cars built for R G McLeod on Bentley chassis, for instance.
