J2-06 1937 Railton Rippon Brothers Special Limousine

Rippon Brother, founded in 1555, originally served as the coachbuilder for Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth I. It created its first car body in 1905 for a Rolls-Royce. In 1937 Colonel Rippon, the works manager, created this coachwork for his personal car. Railton imported Hudson Terraplane chassis and motors from the US, and mated them with lightweight custom coachwork.
