1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom I

Chassis number : 10MC

Share on:

Sold for $46,000 at 2012 Bonhams - Quail Lodge Sale.
There were 2,212 examples of the Phantom I produced by the Rolls-Royce UK factory. Approximately 60 examples were sold in Australia, either new or shortly thereafter. Chassis number 10MC was the first to be delivered to Australia, and is globally one of the oldest Phantoms in existence. The car was factory tested in May of 1925 and then shipped to Sydney. Once it arrived in Sydney it received its open tourer body, by local coachbuilders Jackson, Jones & Collins, preparatory to delivery by Sydney Rolls-Royce agents Dalgety to Frank Albert, a wealthy Australian music publisher. He is said to have kept the Rolls-Royce in storage from 1929 to 1936. Around 1937, it was re-conditioned with new saloon coachwork by Martin & King of Malvern, a Melbourne suburb. The new saloon coachwork had closed-quarter styling with seating for five-passengers.

In the 1970s the car was acquired by Jim Weir of Sydney. In 2011, the car arrived in the United States.


In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Quail Lodge Sale in Carmel, CA presented by Bonhams Auction. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $46,000, including buyer's premium.
