The phantom II Salon Sport Limousine was designed and produced by Hooper and Co. Ltd. Makers to the Royal Family.vvThis car has only known 5 owners. '114MS was first delivered to Mrs. E.C. Wilkin in Bengalore, India. Of it's Indian era, '114MS' kept its windscreen which swivels to an horizontal position, and a hidden 'Boa Constructor' horn described as 'cobra' on the build sheets.
This Hooper bodied Sport Saloon features a comprehensive set of tools. It was built for the overseas market and there are more tools for this Rolls-Royce than would be expected for an English or Western European-delivery car. Currently, the car is tool set is 99-percent complete and can be found in special trays located in the trunk lid and under each front seat.
In 1936, Mrs. Wilkin brought the car to the United States. During the War, the car was put into storage. In 1949, after nearly two decades of ownership, the car was sold to a Rolls-Royce enthusiast. Subsequent owners included Francis A. Poole Esq. Jr, W.R. Kimberly, Harvey Francis Curtis, and Monroe Yale Mann.
The average cost of a PII with coachwork was $13,800, when a 4 bedroom house could be bought for $5,000 and a current model new Ford from $300 to $400.
