This Brewster-bodied Rolls-Royce Phantom I Newmarket was given a restoration in the 1990s. It was entered in the Primary Division at the 1998 CCCA Grand Classic Annual meet where it won first place. It has its CCCA Senior Badge number 2227.

The six-cylinder engine breaths through a single updraft carburetor and produces 100 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel drum brakes.

At the 2010 Gooding & Company Auction held at Amelia Island, Florida, the car was estimated to sell for $190,000 - $230,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $170,000, inclusive of buyer's premium.

This Rolls-Royce Phantom I Newmarket was sold on December 3rd of 1930 to the wife of Edward J. Williams of Cincinnati for the sum of $20,075.50. This was one of the last late-model Phantom I models off the US assembly line, as Rolls-Royce ceased American operations due to the Great Depression. The car would have a series of prominent owners, eventually coming into the care of Lawrence Smith, who had it completely restored in the late 1990s. After the work was completed, it won first place in the Primary Division at the 1998 CCCA Grand Classic.

Since this is a late-model example, it has many technological advances not often seen on the Springfield Phantom. This Rolls-Royce had servo-assisted brakes, a vacuum-fed fuel pump and an updated Bijur lubrication system.

This Rolls-Royce wears open 'Newmarket' coachwork from Brewster. It offers the advantages of open motoring or the elegance of a closed top. It is finished in navy blue paint, has its original coachwork, original mechanical components, and has achieved Senior Award Status at national events.
