Saloon
Coachwork: Mulliner
Chassis #: 3CM65
Engine # K48S (titled as K485)
This Phantom III completed testing on October 13, 1937 and was sent as stock to Car Mart Ltd. After testing, the completed chassis was sent to H.J. Mulliner and given Saloon coachwork and many amenities, including a unique double sunroof. It was sold in early 1938 and received registration EYY333. The first owner was T.C. Maryon-Wilson of Surrey, England.

It eventually came to America in the hands of Wing Commander Kenneth Horatio Wallis of the Royal Air Force (RAF). The car had an accident in the early 1950s, and it was known that Commander Wallis was responsible for the rebuilding of the car, during which the division was removed and the rear fender line was said to be cut.

The next recorded owner was Ralph C. and Martha Shermund of Hillsborough, California. In the early 1960s, Mr. Shermund began a multi-year restoration of the Rolls-Royce. Completed in 1967, Mr. Shermund entered the Rolls-Royce in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It took Best in Class, the Lucius Beebe Award and Best of Show. Later that year, it won the RROC National Meet. It was shown again at Pebble Beach in 1968, the car won yet another First in Class, following by Second in Class in 1971 and 1972, and another First in Class in 1975. It was awarded another First in Class win at the 1967 Annual meet in Monterey, the Guerrero Trophy at the 1971 Meet, the Rolls-Royce (pre-war) Trophy at the 1975 Seattle Meet and a First in Class at the 1979 event.

The Phantom III was listed for sale in 1980. It was subsequently sold to Hillsborough resident Joseph Spranza. It won First in Class at the 1988 Silverado Meet. Ownership later passed to Elizabeth Hook of Oakland, California, who listed it for sale in 1994, at which point it was purchased by the present owner.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Pebble Beach auction presented by Gooding & Company. The car was estimated to sell for $250,000 - $400,000. Unfortunately, a buyer willing to satisfy the car's reserve was not found and it would leave the auction unsold.
