1931 Rolls Royce Phantom II Continental.


car description

Chassis number 48GX Registration number GP4680 The first owner was the Honorable Dorothy Padget, an eccentric horse breeding millionairess who was also prevailed upon to finance the Bentley blower team for Le Mans in the late 1920's. She slept all day, stayed up all night & was in the habit of taking Breakfast at 8:30pm. En route to a race meeting her Rolls Royce failed to proceed so she purchased the local butchers van on the spot in order to continue her journey. Subsequently she purchased a second Rolls to follow the first & forestall a repeat of the unfortunate situation. Thus when a pair of Phantoms arrived at a race course people would know Dorothy Padget had arrived. The quintessential definitive form of a continental. This car is of museum quality & boasts all the desirable features one looks for in such a car; rakish Barker coachwork, twin rear mounted spares, a Hooper patent sunroof etc etc. The car underwent a major mechanical & cosmetic restoration some years ago by marque specialist Mark Taylor of Birdham. Since then it has also had a further £30,000 spent on a new head & upgrades to the suspension. The car is thus in superb order & is currently being serviced by ourse
