This 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Ascot Tourer was built in 1928 by Brewster of Springfield, MA, and the last was built in 1930. Of the 24 built, 22 have survived; one was wrecked and one burned. The Phantom I was officially known as the 'New Phantom,' and succeeded the 19 year-old Silver Ghost in 1925. The early Phantom I was actually built in England but bodied in New York by Brewster for Paramount Pictures.
This Phantom was delivered new to W.C. Trabold in New York (Long Island), NY, on August 5, 1929. Since then, it has had 12 other owners until purchased by the current owner on August 5, 2005.
This Ascot Tourer is powered by a water-cooled, overhead valve, 6-cylinder, 7.67 liter engine, developing 100 horsepower, coupled to a four-speed manual transmission and has a top speed of 80 mph.
