Chassis no: 3BT143
1937 Rolls Royce Phantom 3 Barker Swept Back Saloon.
Chassis number: 3BT143
Registration number: ELF351
A magnificent & imposing Rolls Royce Phantom 3. THis car is in lovely order throughout & is clothed with a consummately elegant swept back body by Barker. Although a division car, it is well suited to the owner driver as the front driving position is spacious, comfortable & commodious.
The car is finsihed in Maroon over black with the paint being in excellent condition. To the interior is a gorgeous dark red hide throughout with cream carpets & deep pile lambswool over rugs. The burr walnut interior woodwork of this Rolls Royce phantom 3 has been removed & refinished, so presents like new. In the certre of the bukhead is a useful cocktail cabinet, again in burr walnut.
The elderly German owner of the car has maintained it without regard to cost. Indeed when we collected it, we picked it up from a UK speciailist who had just rebuilt the carburettor. The engine starts readily & runs quietly. It also runs cool with good oil pressure & is a pleasure to drive with none of the worries asociated with these V12's when neglected. It is a large car with an imposing aspect & a real sense of grandeur when proceeding along the road.
