Courtesy of the Rolls-Royce factory archives, we are able to identify that the example offered here was ordered on 28th September 1929 in chassis form by a Mr. Carl Petersen of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is also noted that the car was sent immediately to Paris where it was to be bodied by Carrosserie Kellner of Paris, intended to adorn a Sedanca style body. It appears that the car was not finished until October 1930 by which time it was shipped to Denmark for use. It then remained in the ownership of Mr. Peterson until after the War when he sold it to fellow Dane, Ebbe Svenson in August 1951. He kept the car until March 1956 when it was sold (again within Denmark) to Fred Krag of Charlottelund. It is believed to be within this ownership that the car was treated to the body by Jensen Hojrup that it retains to this day. In 1959 the Phantom II was then sold to Ernst Granzow from Klampenborg and it is not known how long he owned it. At present it is not known if the car was already in the USA when the current vendor's father purchased the car in 1974 for the Phantom II to join his already impressive stable of motor cars. The car had been enjoyed regularly until 1985, at which time it was put into storage (importantly all fluids were drained to ensure no long-term damage per Rolls-Royce instructions).
in 2005 it was acquired by its current owner, who made a thorough restoration of body and motor, raising the restoration by expert restorers RR to 120K GBP, currently the car is in perfect condition and is for sale, is offered in its better state of maintenance, being able to visit and check without any commitment.
