The Phantom is a magnificent car having covered a scant 90,000 miles in 90 years. This car drives beautifully with a tight taut feel to it & a strong silent powerful 8 litre engine. It carries echoes from the carriage building days with delightful carriage style moulding carrying forwards from the front doors. The rear compartment is trimmed in cloth and includes foot rests to offer its owner the most comfortable experience when being driven by a chauffeur. Two occasional seats are fitted in the rear making for seating for 6 people. The Cab has a wind up Chauffeurs division and Silk window blinds with vintage beading. The front compartment is trimmed in black leather, taking into account the de Ville roof which gives the option of open motoring.
Pleasingly the interior retains all its original accoutrements. The woodwork is Macassar Ebony of the highest quality. The original Dictaphone intercom is in its place & has been refurbished to full working order allowing those in the rear to give direction to the driver up front. Twin side mount spare wheels are fitted to the front or both running boards making for an imposing frontal appearance. Externally to the rear is a motoring trunk. It has two spare wheel mounts with fantastic crafted bracketry and nickel silver coated Paris Opera Lamps.
This car was bought by an American in Massachusetts, before being bought by a Parisian and returning to England in the early 1990s.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud is an automobile produced by Rolls-Royce Limited from April 1955 to March 1966. It was the core model of the Rolls-Royce range during that period. The 1957 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I is the perfect boulevard cruiser. The imposing grille, swooping fenders and 212-inch length will get you noticed.
In sales literature the company declared, “With the distinguished appearance of the Rolls-Royce design, goes a performance which fulfills a motorist’s most exacting requirements in every respect.” The 4.9-liter inline six puts out an estimated 178 horsepower, impressive when compared to Chevrolet’s 1957 base 265-ci V8, rated at 162 horses.
The interior wood finish is beautiful with walnut picnic tables and blue-grey upholstery.
Our Bentley S1 is very similar, apart from its radiator grille.
The Rolls-Royce Statesman de Ville (or 20/25) were built between 1929 and 1936 and succeeded the 20 HP as Rolls-Royce's "small car". It was intended to appeal to owner drivers, but many were sold to customers with chauffeurs.
To the interior is an elaborate brocade style fabric with two occasional seats and a cocktail cabinet. It feels as if one were in a 1900 Hotel room. It is finished in Black Leather to the front.
The exterior of the car is finished in Ivory and Black. A capacious motoring trunk is fitted to the rear below the quaint oval rear window. The coachwork is quite upright & imbues the car with a period feel to it.
The car runs in complete silence with a beautifully smooth engine. The steering is play free, light & direct; the gear box easy to use.
