|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The one-off coarchwork was created for the Maharaja of Jodhpur, with the purpose of tiger hunting in India. Specific options ordered for this car include light-weight three-seater sports body, sporty outside handbrake lever, two side-mounted spare tires, an ivory white finish to the steering wheel and real ivory control knobs. There are teardrop-style running board toolboxes, wood-grain paint finish to the upper surface of the bodywrok, ultra-low windshield, and oyster shell fenders.
The car remained in the Idar family until the early 1960s.
In 2008, this Phantom I Barker Boattail was brought to the Gooding & Company auction held in Pebble Beach, CA. It was one of the highlights of the auction, selling for $1,210,000 including buyer's premium.
This is a very unique and wonderful Rolls-Royce Phantom that has a purposeful design and an elegant ambiance and majesty. It retains its original silver and black color combination and is a matching numbers example.
