All-Weather Tourer
Coachwork: Hooper
Chassis Num: 7RY
Engine Num: YD-25 or YO-25
This All-Weather Tourer was ordered on October 30th of 1933 and was the first RY series Phantom II Continental. It was the first of 42 short chassis versions in the series, all of which were odd numbered.

Chassis 7-RY was specially equipped with a supplementary five-gallon petrol tank, connections for a Clayton heater and steering at the 'F' rake. It was delivered on February 9th to the owners (Mr. Gulbenkian) preferred coachbuilder, Hooper & Co. Ltd., where it was given a close-coupled All-Weather Tourer coachwork. The body was fitted with a speedometer and clock for the rear passengers, special bumpers front and rear, twin side-mounted spares and an extended bonnet, angled at 11° to match the louvres.

Upon completion, the car was finished in a single dark shade with matching wheel discs, Marchall headlamps, a cowl-mounted spot light, a center-mounted driving light and Michelin tires.

In 1934, the car was reportedly used as the official car for King George V at the Silver Jubilee of the RAF, and in 1936, it was made available to King Edward VIII during his review of the Royal Navy.

In the Fall of 1940, the car was sold to Frank Dale. Soon it left for the United States where it was sold to D.W. Price Jr. of Rochester, New York. In the early 1960s, George R. Wallace of Massachusetts acquired the Rolls-Royce and had Ed Lake perform a thorough restoration.

In 1964, 7-RY was awarded the Hooper Trophy at the 13th Annual Rolls-Royce Owners' Club Meet and earned its Junior Second at the AACA Show in Hershey. The following year, the Continental received two First Prize awards, one at the CCCA Buck Hill Falls Meet and the second at the Motorasia Exhibition in Atlantic City. It would continue to earn awards over the next two years, including Best of Show at the Newport Motor Car Festival, a Junior First at Hershey and First Prize at the Boston AutoRama.

In 1974, the car was sold at auction in Fitchburg and purchased by Dave Mathewson of Orange, Connecticut. It was later sold to Louis Schultz and Joe Loecy before joining the Petronis Collection in Easton, Maryland in 1997. In the mid-2000s, it was purchased by the present owner.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction where it was estimated to sell for $600,000 - $700,000. It would leave the auction unsold after its reserve was not met.
