1935 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Tourer

Vehicle Details

This Rolls-Royce Phantom II is a nice example of the ultimate 6-cylinder prewar Rolls. It is powered by a massive 7.7-liter OHV inline-6 engine paired to a 4-speed manual transmission. This car is a late-production, long-chassis model that left the Rolls-Royce factory as a rolling chassis in early 1935. It left the port in Liverpool in May that same year, bound for New York about the RMS Carinthia. Once in the U.S., it was delivered to Rolls-Royce of America’s works in Springfield, MA, where it was fitted with a formal Huntington Limousine body by Brewster. The first owner was C.P. Chase of New York. Mr. John Meyers of Minneapolis acquired the car in the 1940s. According to John Webb de Campi’s book, “Rolls-Royce in America,” this Phantom II was converted in 1945 to the open tourer configuration it wears today. The revised coachwork gave the Phantom II a more modern feel, with skirted fenders and a unique dual-cowl cockpit. The car has benefitted from many years of meticulous care and restoration work while in the possession of the Meyers family, as well as with subsequent owners. The sale includes detailed factory Build Sheets, period photos, Rolls-Royce Club documents, and numerous receipts and technical information.
