Rolls-Royce Phantom I Open Tourer by Hooper (original) For Sale (1926)
This fantastic Rolls-Royce Phantom I has a very fascinating history. The car was delivered new to the Duque of Arion in Spain in 1926. He was one of the richest people in Spain, and ordered his car with the desirable Open Tourer body from Hooper. After a couple of years, he sold the car to the President of Spain, Don Alejandro Lerroux. When the civil war broke out in Spain, Don Alejandro moved to Portugal, and General Franco took the Rolls-Royce away from him and gave it to one of his best friends, an industrialist in San Sebastian. The car resided in this family until a couple of years ago. When we purchased the car, it was the first time that it left Spain since 1926...
This example with chassisnr 60LC has still its original Hooper Open Tourer body, which is very rare indeed. It is in fantastic condition, runs very well and looks quite impressive. The original colour was grey with black, but now its beautiful colour combination of Cream with Nutmeg and stunning red hide interior makes it an absolute eyecatcher. We have the build specification from new, and everything on this Phantom is still very correct. The engine runs smooth, and gearbox and brakes all work well. Due to the mild spanish climate, the chassis and body are absolutly rustfree.
A Rolls-Royce Phantom I with an original Hooper Open Tourer body is rare, but this example in such a pristine condition and with this important history is a once in a lifetime find. It will fit in every important motorcar collection around the world, and we are quite sure that finding a better one is almost impossible.
