A Treasured Chest Goes on the Back of a Rolls-Royce

Automotive Restorations Inc. recently purchased this antique car trunk from Treasured Chests to go on a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith they were restoring for a customer. The patina was left on the trunk to match the rest of the car and everyone was very pleased with the results. This beautiful car also has 7 passenger limousine coachwork by Inskip.

AS-IS Auto Trunk, DIYW (Do It Your Way) Save Some Money!

We found this nice auto trunk on the spur of the moment and just couldn't pass it up but when we got home with it realized we just don't have time to restore it properly. So we can pass some savings on to you and you can do it yourself, your way, for your car. Overall it's in very good condition, all the hardware is there and in good condition. The latches could stand some polishing, the handle on one end could be replaced or repaired, the lid stay could be reconnected and the fabric could be tacked back down in a few small places. There is one spot of damage on the lower left front but a good detail person should be able to patch it. Yes, it's green and is the first automobile trunk we've ever had that wasn't black but the color could be changed to suit your car. Sound like a lot of work? Well, if you've been seriously looking for a REAL antique car trunk then you know how very difficult they are to find, especially ones in as good condition as this one, though it's not perfect. It measures 36 wide x 16 deep (front to back) x 19 tall. The patent on the lid stay is from 1928. Trunk # BQ0503. (Sold to a Treasured Customer in TX)
