Rolls-Royce began work on its new Phantom I in 1922, it was introduced in 1925. It succeeded the Silver Ghost (40/50 Series), which was no easy task. The new Phantom offered a larger 7.7 liter six-cylinder engine, constructed with a one-piece cylinder head and offering overhead valve operation. It also sported dual ignition system and an aluminum crankcase. In 1929, Rolls-Royce offered a Phantom II series using the same engine, but employing a new more refined transmission and revised suspension allowing for much improved handling characteristics.

This Short Coupled Saloon shown was displayed at the 1929 Paris Salon. It featured coachwork by Weymann. Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton purchased the car. Ernest Hemingway toured the United States in this car. The car has a fully documented history and appears in 'The Rolls-Royce 40/50 HP' by W.J. Oldham and 'Those Elegant Rolls-Royces' by L. Dalton. It has recently been featured at the Pin-Mar and the Festival of Speed.
