Chassis number : 70KR

Share on:

Sold for $81,400 at 2017 RM Sothebys : Hershey.
The Rolls-Royce New Phantom, retrospectively called the Phantom I, served as a replacement for the 40/50 HP Silver Ghost in May of 1925.

This Phantom I was ordered through Rootes Ltd. of Devonshire House by J.J. Murphy, a resident of Southern India, and was mounted with a landaulet body by Thrupp & Maberly. By the 1960s it had been acquired by Peter Thomas of Ascot, Berkshire of England. He commissioned this tourer body to be built on the chassis. It was sold in 1971 to Howard A. Schwartz of Yonkers, New York, who passed it in 1976 to Harold F. Porter of Wilton, Connecticut. The current caretaker's father purchased the Rolls-Royce in 1978.

This Phantom I is finished in a cream and burgundy color scheme. It was given a full mechanical rebuild during the early 1980s.
