In 1906, Rolls-Royce created its worldwide reputation with the “Silver Ghost”. In the 1920s as its genius construction started aging, the Phantom I emerged. Its engine was a brand new construction, but its body stayed the same. Demand rose quickly and 3,453 Chassis of the Phantom I were delivered, 1,241 of which at the American Rolls-Royce factory in Springfield. Naturally, these cars were left hand driven and there were several other technical differences between the English and American construction: The US versions had a 3-speed gearbox and 6-volt battery. But excellent quality was a standard for both models!
Our RR Phantom I was licensed in New York City in 1929. At some point, the town car body was replaced by its current tourer body. From 1980 onward, the Phantom was in Switzerland, was restored completely between 2000 and 2012 and has since been registered in Germany. A FIVA identity card is available. A Rolls-Royce Phantom is always a legendary car but this one is also tremendously elegant.
