Saloon
Coachwork: James Young
Chassis #: 5LVB27
Sold for $97,900 at 2008 Sports & Classics of Monterey by RM Auctions.
Sold for $101,750 at 2011 Automobiles of Arizona by RM Auctions.
The Phantom V was introduced in 1959 and intended as a replacement for the Silver Wraith. The long wheelbase of the Phantom V was suitable for specialized coachwork. The V8 engine of the Rills-Royce Silver Cloud was powerful enough to easily carry these large and stately bodies. The z-bar location of the Silver Cloud was replaced by a single radius rod on the Phantom V. The rear axle was now mounted asymmetrically on the springs.

The Phantom V provided comfort, style, luxury, and plenty of room for its occupants. Rolls-Royce had expected many orders but the requests were slow. Part of the cars drawbacks was the price tag and the fact that so few firms now existed to provide the coachwork. One of the companies that still did exist was the legendary coachbuilder James Young & Co. Ltd. of Bromley, Kent which has a history that dates back to 1863. James Young bodies were offered until 1967, but the firm continued on to do body refinishing work.

This particular Rolls-Royce Phantom V Saloon wears coachwork by James Young. A restoration was performed many years ago but it still remains in exquisite condition. It is painted in Garnet and Silver Sand. The interior is tan leather with deep maroon piping and French walnut wood trim. There is a rear passenger cabinetry, maroon wool carpets and leather panels. As would be expected, there is air conditioning.

From 1959 to 1968, only 832 examples of the Phantom V were produced. These hand-built luxury cars are highly sought after in modern times. In 2008, this vehicle was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions where it had an estimated value of $120,000 - $150,000. It was sold for a high bid of $97,900 including buyer's premium.
