I believe that the 50's Rolls Royces used GM sourced 4 speed autos and I believe they are an excellent unit.
My T700 was out of a VN V8 with cable shift.

The 4speed auto in the Rolls Royce is an old GM design (from the fifties) that was fitted to the Cloud series I, II & III as well as Bentleys' SI, SII and SIII.
