THE ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM II

Reputedly the last model Henry Royce designed himself, the Phantom II was introduced in 1929 as a successor to the New Phantom (retrospectively known as the Phantom I) with deliveries commencing in September of that year. Unlike its predecessor, which inherited its underpinnings from the preceding 40/50hp model, the Silver Ghost, the Phantom II employed an entirely new chassis laid out along the lines of that of the smaller 20hp Rolls-Royce. Built in two wheelbase lengths – 144 and 150 inches, the former being used for the Continental models - this new low-slung frame, with its radiator set well back, enabled coachbuilders to body the car in the modern idiom, creating sleeker designs than the upright ones of the past.

The engine too had come in for extensive revision. The Phantom I's cylinder dimensions and basic layout - two blocks of three cylinders, with an aluminum cylinder head common to both blocks - were retained, but the combustion chambers had been redesigned and the head was now of the cross-flow type, with inlet and exhaust manifolds on opposite sides. The magneto/coil dual ignition system remained the same as on the PI. The result of these engine changes was greatly enhanced performance, and the ability to accommodate weightier coachwork.

'Powerful, docile, delightfully easy to control and a thoroughbred, it behaves in a manner which is difficult to convey without seeming to over-praise' opined The Motor after testing a PII Continental in March 1934.

Highly favored by prominent coachbuilders, the Phantom II chassis provided the platform for some of the truly outstanding designs of its day.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular Phantom II is believed to have started life with Saloon bodywork by London-based coachbuilders Thrupp & Maberly. At some stage in its life this chassis was found in Kenya, Africa, and acquired by Mr. H. Baungaard, a Danish gentleman living there at the time. Mr. Baungaard brought the chassis back to Denmark, along with the beautifully constructed Boattail Tourer bodywork it is fitted with today. The Boattail body is believed to have been made in Kenya by a Mr. Tanner, a very capable craftsman, mentioned in the best-selling novel 'Out of Africa' by the Danish writer Karen Blixen.

This elegant Phantom II later became part of Jørgen Strøjer Hansen's renowned collection located on Denmark's Funen Island. The car was sold to the current owner, a well-known San Diego, CA based collector of exceptional motorcars in 2014. Displaying exceptional woodwork, chrome and nickel, this impressive Rolls-Royce would be a wonderful touring car or entry to shows or Concours events.
