1930 Rolls Royce Phantom II

1930 Rolls Royce Phantom II

This is a stunning motor vehicle that has been restored to a very high standard with no expense spared. This imposing Phantom II Rolls Royce began life fitted with a lovely Windovers Sports Coupe Fixed Head body. The car was the recipient of a full rebuild in the early 2000’s where no expense was spared on all facets of the car including mechanical, panel work, paint, interior and all fittings.

 The Phantom II used a refinement of the Phantom I’s 7.7 L pushrod-OHV straight-6 engine with a new crossflow cylinder head. Unlike on previous 40/50 hp models, the engine was bolted directly to the 4-speed manual transmission.

 This car has had a full engine rebuild including new engine block, Radiator core, camshaft, cylinder head, pistons, all new white metaling , all new bearings, new fan and filtration system. New inlet manifold , water pump housing, clutch , fly wheel , new casted brake drums on rear etc. (Engine work totalling just over $185,000 NZD)

 The chassis of the Phantom II was completely new. The front axle was mounted on semi-elliptical leaf springs as on earlier 40/50 hp models, but the rear axle was now also mounted on semi-elliptical springs instead of cantilever springs. This, along with the drivetrain changes, allowed the frame to be lower than before, improving the handling.

 A total of 1,281 Phantom II chassis of all types were built with renowned coachbuilders of the day crafting bodies of all styles.

 This example is a car that not only looks elegant but is an extremely motorable vehicle with the current owner having covered many hundreds of trouble free miles in the car.

 The car is accompanied by a file of many hundreds of thousands of dollars of invoices and historical documentation corresponding to the restoration, maintenance and history of the vehicle .

 Chassis Number 192 XJ

 Engine Number BG55
