Footnotes

  • Rolls-Royce's in-house coachbuilder Park Ward Limited (later H J Mulliner, Park Ward) produced what was, in effect, the 'standard' seven-passenger 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 alongside the Silver Shadow-specification 6,230cc 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 incorporated into the rear compartment's cabinetwork was one of a host of options that also included electric windows. Phantom development tended to lag behind that of the contemporary 'Shadow range and it was not until 1978 that the model received the three-speed automatic transmission and 6.75-litre engine that had featured on the latter for many years. By this time the opulent Phantom VI - the final Rolls-Royce erected on a separate chassis frame - was being built to special order only, with prices 'on application'.
    The Phantom VI offered here was supplied new to the London Borough of Barnet, which kept it until 1986 when the car passed to its first private owner. The latter kept the vehicle until 1997 when it was purchased by the current vendor at auction. 'HPE 5K' is particularly well appointed, being equipped with electrically operated internal division and windows, cocktail cabinet and folding occasional rear seats. The car is finished in Mason's Black with cream Connolly hide upholstery to the front compartment and grey West of England cloth to the rear, the latter re-trimmed in November 1997 by Jack Barclay Ltd. Described as in generally fair/good condition, this most imposing and stately Rolls-Royce is offered with an extensive history file of bills and correspondence, road fund licence/MoT to February 2011 and Swansea V5 registration document.
