2004 Rolls-Royce Phantom
One European's experience at Bonneville's famous SpeedWeek.
Through the SEMA Technology Initiative, Ford was able to collaborate with several of those companies to produce a low-volume niche vehicle. Ewing had the design, SEMA had the suppliers and soon, the GTX1 was born.
Classic Car Overview
The 2004-2007 Phantoms were the truest and most profound signature of the Rolls-Royce brand since the company became under the stewardship of BMW. These early Phantoms saluted the heritage of the marque by reintroducing bespoke designs and tradition in concert with modern technology. They remain the hallmark behemoths of luxury that saw the relaunch of the name under a brand new model carrying all the poise and elegance of the earlier Crewe motor cars - before the model became the riff-raff representation of untraditional owners and their indulgence in Gaudi color-schemes, cringy options and silly childish features like big wheels and flashing LED lighting from all unexpected orifices.
The opposing side doors on Phantom is retrospective of the days of coach built Rolls-Royce motor cars like the Phantom V as deployed for VIP and, in many cases, Royal use. It is but one example of the very reason the car is deserving of its name.
This Phantom is big, and dynamic, yet still very elegant with all the luxury expected of "the worlds best motor car", without the gizmos and gimmicks of the current models which, sadly, show the Company has now lost its way.
This is a Californian car all its life and in the last year located in Illinois, has NEVER been subjected to inclement weather. But instead, housed in a climate controlled environment away from the perils of winter.
Maintained its whole life by Rolls-Royce San Diego, the car has been well looked after without constraints of cost or time. Under the care of Park-Ward Motors, its pampered life has continued to enable her to be presented to you in a full turn-key state and without the need of any repair nor expense but for scheduled ongoing service and maintenance.
The only modification to the car is the replacement of the factory supplied PAX metric wheels and tyres for the later 21" factory Phantom wheels of 2005-2007. These sport tyres that show plenty of tread and are only a few years old.
The body and paint on the car are excellent without any noticeable chips, marks or scratches. The interior if the car is impeccable condition without any sign of wear and tear. It has the teak inlaid rich burl walnut option with heavy grain and deep knotting. For those who like the "extra" wood pieces for the gauge assembly and front passenger airbag unit, extra matching wood pieces are available for fitment. We prefer the "stainless look" and have elected not to have these fitted.
Headliner, carpets, mouton overlay rugs; all in excellent condition.
This Phantom also has the added factory option of DVD player.
As per the age old expression of "a picture is worth a thousand words" we stop here and recommend you view the many pictures of this great example supplied to you by Americas number 1 classic Rolls-Royce and Bentley restorer and seller world-wide.
