Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1932 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Drophead Coupe by Carlton For Sale.

Previous UK Registration: 544 YUS

Chassis no: 32MS

Engine no: HD 55

Mileage shown: 22,480

 

 32MS was first ordered by the Duke of Sutherland;  Sir George Granville Sutherland-Leveson-Gower who was the largest UK landowner ever with 1,358,600 acres. She changed ownership twice until being purchased by Henry Wilkins in 1957.

 After a move to America the rear curvature was carefully improved with the spare wheel was moved to the rear in Continental style and the luggage space increased, the end result is a truly astonishing body; the long louvered bonnet and skuttle are iconic and as the lines continue towards the rear they sweep perfectly with the wings matching the curvature.

 This Continental is one of 280 produced however the body is certainly one of a kind and a truly rakish design. The paintwork is finished in a soft shade of grey, the paintwork is in supeb condition all over. The top bodyline is finished in very dark grey with 2 fine and separately coloured coachlines which continue all around the car.

 The Boot space is more than adequate, there is plenty of room for all the spares needed on a long distance rally, and even some space for shopping!

 The light tan interior is to true Rolls-Royce quality and begin to show some beautiful patina, the seats are fluted and there are pockets to the door cards and behind the seats, simply fold the seats forward and there is another large storage space.

 One person takes up and down the hood easily and being a coupe the car still looks magnificent with the roof up; the rear centre section also comes down, allowing for a gentle breeze or a better view.

 The head and spot lamps are of the fines quality (Stephen Grebel) and light up the night road in style. The wooden dashboard and cappings are veneered to a faultless standard, even the black enamelling around the gauges is to a concours standard.

 The beautifully engineered 7,668 cc engine has an endless amount of torque and runs effortlessly, you are forever the blipping the throttle just to check as the engine runs silently. The coachwork is glamorous, but the engine is a true masterpiece that you feel honoured to be in charge of.

A simply vast history file comes with the car with massive invoices for service work & restoration from an assortment of noted specialists including Frank Dale & stepsons & also noted specialist Werner Mork in Germany.

We sold this wonderful Phantom 2 a few years ago to the current Austrian owner who is now down sizing his collection. The car comes with Autrian Registration papers & also an expired UK V5c registration. This is a top level Phantom 2 continental with stunning coachwork & a great provenance.
