Lot Details
1968 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI Limousine Coachwork by Mulliner Park Ward
Chassis no. PRH 4769
Rolls-Royce's in-house coachbuilder Park Ward Limited (later Mulliner Park Ward) produced what was, in effect, the 'standard' limousine coachwork for the Phantom V. This timeless design would survive until 1990, being built in near-identical Phantom VI form from 1968, when separate air conditioning for front and rear compartments was standardised together with the Silver Shadow-specification V8 engine. The usual upholstery for the front compartment was leather, which was also included in the list of alternatives for the rear along with West of England cloth. As one would expect in a car of this class, a cocktail cabinet was incorporated as standard into the rear compartment's cabinetwork, while electric windows and air conditioning were among the preferred options.
This lefthand-drive example has the 6.75-litre V8 engine and four-speed automatic gearbox. We are advised that the car belonged to a wealthy German private collector, who is believed to have imported it from Hong Kong, and has been serviced regularly by the main Rolls-Royce dealer in Düsseldorf for the past ten years. Around ten years ago the car was totally stripped and repainted in black over charcoal metallic by renowned Düsseldorf paint shop Bundesmann. A total of 99,580 miles is currently displayed on the odometer and the car presents itself very well. The interior has the customary internal division, six seats (two folding) and built-in cocktail bar, and is upholstered in leather to the front compartment and West of England cloth to the rear. The vehicle is offered with German registration papers (KZF-Brief). Should the car remain in the EU, VAT is applicable on the hammer price and will be stated on the invoice individually. No VAT is payable for clients with a EU-Tax ID Number, or upon proof of export.




Dieses Exemplar mit Linkslenkung verfügt über einen 6,75-Liter-V8-Motor und ein Vierstufen-Automatikgetriebe. Gemäss unserer Information gehörte der Wagen einem vermögenden deutschen Privatsammler, der ihn aus Hongkong importiert haben soll. Er wurde während der letzten zehn Jahre regelmäßig beim Rolls-Royce-Hauptvertreter in Düsseldorf gewartet. Ungefähr vor zehn Jahren wurde das Fahrzeug vollständig zerlegt und erhielt vom renommierten Düsseldorfer Autospritzwerk Bundesmann eine schwarze Neulackierung mit spezieller Grundierung. Der Tachostand beträgt 99’580 Meilen, und der Rolls macht einen ausgezeichneten Eindruck. Der Innenraum besitzt die übliche Separation, sechs Sitze (zwei davon umklappbar) und eine eingebaute Cocktail-Bar. Die Vordersitze sind mit Leder bezogen, während hinten "West of England"- Stoffpolster zum Einsatz kommen. Der Wagen wird mit einem deutschen Kfz-Brief abgegeben. Sollte der Wagen in der EU verbleiben, wird auf den Zuschlagpreis die örtliche MWSt fällig. Diese wird individuell ausgewiesen. Keine Steuern werden fällig, für Kunden mit einer Steuer-Identifikations-Nummer oder bei Exportnachweis.
