While using the chassis of its predecessor, the Phantom introduced a 7.7-litre overhead-valve engine in place of the Ghost s smaller side-valve unit; twin ignition with two spark plugs in each of its six cylinders; servo-assisted brakes; and single dry-plate clutch. Produced in Derby, England, and in Springfield, Massachusetts, Phantoms were marketed to the most well-to-do customers, with elegant bodywork available from noted coachbuilders such as Park Ward and Hooper. The January 1926 purchase of Brewster & Company by Rolls-Royce meant many Springfield Phantoms were bodied in Long Island City, New York, in one of 26 designs by Brewster s Carl Beck. Dubbed the Phantom I but only after the introduction of the Phantom II in 1929 a total of 2,212 were built between 1925 1929, with another 1,240 done in the US, where the production continued into 1931. Finished in light gray with green wings and taupe leather interior accented by walnut veneers, chassis S109PR is a late-production 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom I. One of 21 wearing Regent convertible coupe bodywork by Brewster, this sporting model features a low roofline, an all-weather convertible roof, graceful front wings carrying dual side-mount spares, and a half-door allowing access to a dickey seat. Per John Webb de Campi s book Rolls-Royce in America, this Phantom I Regent was delivered new in April 1931 to John Ryan of New York City. After being held by two other owners, it was acquired in 1964 by Rolls-Royce collector Leslie Stevenson. In 1987, this Phantom was purchased by well-known car and automobilia collector Gerald Lettieri. In 1995, this Phantom was procured by Rolls-Royce enthusiast Elizabeth Zoller of Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania, who commissioned a comprehensive refurbishment by marque specialists D&D Classic Automobile Restoration in Covington, Ohio. Attesting to the quality of work performed, this car earned Third in Class at the 1997 Pebble Beach Concours d Elegance . Among its other honors were an AACA National First Place and an RROC Concours National Award in 1997, and an AACA Grand National First Place in 2002. Accompanied by its handbook, Schoellkopf card, chassis card, RROC documentation, and top boot, this Phantom I Regent is stated by the consignor to have been maintained on the button, and it still presents exceptionally well, earning a Second in Class at the San Marino Motor Classic in June 2018. A remarkable example of one of the finest prewar touring cars ever made, this desirable Rolls-Royce with rare Brewster coachwork is poised to bring its next owner enjoyment touring or on the concours lawn.
1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Henley Roadster For Sale- Ground Up Restoration LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1931 Rolls-Royce Roadster. On October 18, 1919, Rolls-Royce of America was launched in Springfield, Massachusetts and produced 2,944 Silver Ghost and New Phantom cars between 1921 and 1931. When production of the Phantom II ended in England, Springfield was left with a sparse inventory of Phantom I’s and a few imported Phantom II’s, so the Derby factory completed a series of “Americanized” Phantom II chassis and sent them to Springfield. The chassis numbers on these cars ended with either “AJS” or “AMS.” The “A” represented a car modified for the American market. The most obvious change was the conversion from right-hand to left-hand drive. An American-type central gearshift replaced the British-style side lever. The radiator shutters were thermostatically controlled to open or shut depending upon engine temperature, and manual control of extra cylinder lubrication was fitted for cold starts. Assuming Americans drove faster and more aggressively than the British, front and rear bumper supports, wider brake shoes, heavier rear brake drums, and higher gear ratios for high-speed touring were installed. These cars were manufactured and tested at Rolls-Royce Works in Derby, England, then shipped to the United States. In 1925, Rolls-Royce of America purchased the coachbuilder Brewster & Company and in 1931, the firm began designing and fitting bodies onto the chassis imported from England. This 1931 Rolls-Royce Springfield Phantom II Henley Roadster was ordered on March, 20, 1931 with a Keswick body. On December 31, 1931, it was delivered to its first owner A.C. Burrage, in Boston, Massachusetts. John H. Chapin of New York would take over ownership of this classic on December, 23, 1949 as documented by Rolls Royce. On January 9, 1957, Sexton P. Phelps of New York would become the cars next caretaker. The Rolls-Royce Foundation has records indicating it bodied as this absolutely stunning Henley Roadster by the 1950’s as well complete with its number matching engine. The Rolls-Royce would move to Chicago under ownership of Frederick W. Spiegel next, and would remain in Illinois until 1985. Recently, this beautiful classic has been treated to a complete ground up restoration that now has this car in truly Concours worthy condition. The wheels feature all new chrome and new spokes while the exterior is freshly finished in a custom Dark Blue. Inside, there is all new leather and new wool carpets with a new matching canvas convertible top. All the wood accents on this Rolls have been refinished to a show quality finish. The numbers matching 7.6L 6-cylinder engine and engine compartment look incredible and perform just as well. Several pieces of important documentation are present and will be included with the sale some of which include; the chassis build sheet, chassis cards from 1931 and 1949, Schoellkopf card from 1957, and Rolls-Royce Owners Club registrations. This beautiful 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Henley Roadster is an opportunity to own a well-documented and Concours worthy classic. This Rolls-Royce is a desirable centerpiece for any collection.
