Arriving soon in January. Originally commissioned for the London High Commissioner for Nigeria. This phantom is in supeb condition having been the recipient of massive expenditure to put in in the condition we find it today.
The classic Mason’s Black paintwork is laid down over straight alloy panels with excellent alignment and fit. Getting such a large car to appear so straight in a single-tone black paint scheme is no easy task and is a testament to the quality and care given to the restoration. A single coach line in gold accents the paintwork, which is repeated on the wheel covers as per original.
Chrome adornment is limited to bumpers, light trims, a subtle waist strip and of course, the prominent Rolls Royce radiator shell. A radiator-mounted flag holder hints at this car’s period diplomatic duties. All of the brightwork is presented in very good order, with deep, clear reflections and no corrosion.
The interior is wonderfully presented, with a black driver’s compartment contrasting a cream beige passenger compartment, separated by a power divider that glides up & down at the touch of a button. The chauffeur’s compartment is beautifully trimmed, in black leather. The Black Wilton carpets are in excellent order and the gorgeous woodwork provides a visual lift to the businesslike driver’s office. An under-dash A/C unit keeps the driver and front passenger comfortable, while all original instruments and switchgear present in excellent order.
The rear compartment is a drastic contrast to the front, with a light and airy feeling courtesy of the cream beige Connolly hides, light Wilton rugs, and plenty of glass. Integrated into the divider is a beautifully finished wood bar, an originally-fitted option which includes a pair of crystal decanters. Flanking the bar is a pair of jump seats trimmed in leather and vents for the rear-mounted air conditioning system. Door cards are in excellent order, with beautiful banded-wood caps surrounding the cabin. Rear passengers are whisked along in opulence, with gorgeous tan leather chairs, individual cigarette lighters, carpeted foot rests and a separate set of controls for the rear air conditioning system.
The engine bay presents beautifully with a few modern upgrades for the sake of reliable operation. Correct finishes adorn the rocker covers, ancillaries and firewall. The car is an outstanding driver, with its previous owner using the car sparingly for shows and events. It rides on a set of Michelin X radial tires, a widely accepted modern alternative to the original crossply tires, well suited to the performance characteristics of this large limousine.
The car will arrive with us in January at which time we will perform a full service upon it & rephotograph it to our ususal standards. We will also be UK registering the car. To sum up this is a car in impeccable order with the benefit of an aftermarket air-conditioning system to keep the occupants cool. It exudes gravitas in large measures & makes a real statement upon its imperious arrival. Being a 7 seat vehicle it lends itself well to events such as Henly & Ascot but is equally at home as a London limousine similar to the last one we sold.
