Description
Lot #1391 - The Rolls-Royce New Phantom, later styled Phantom I after the introduction of the Phantom II, was the successor to the marque's highly successful Silver Ghost. Featuring a larger, 7.7-liter 6-cylinder engine and pushrod overhead valves, the Phantom I was equally well-received. Models intended for sale in the U.S. were built at the Rolls-Royce plant in Springfield, MA, which was run according to the same exacting standards of the famous Derby facility. The Silver Ghost and the Phantom I are the only Rolls-Royce models ever produced in the United States, which, combined with the world-class reputation of the marque, makes these vehicles gems of the American collector car market. This model, chassis S285RM, was sold new to Mr. Joseph Samuels on December 13, 1927, featuring a very sporting Piccadilly Roadster body from the in-house Custom Coach Works. The car passed through a series of owners and enthusiasts, mostly in the northeastern part of the United States. In February 1963, it was featured in an issue of The Flying Lady by then-owner Oliver Merrill. Today, the car is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. Rolls-Royce Phantoms made in Springfield are prized by collectors for their high levels of craftsmanship and engineering, and also as pieces of American automotive history. Featuring elegant and sporting coachwork, S285RM is an ideal automobile for display at a concours, touring in historic events or simply taking a drive through the countryside. **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
