This is the 19th vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The Rolls-Royce New Phantom, later known as Phantom I after the introduction of the Phantom II, was the successor to the marque’s highly successful Silver Ghost.
Featuring a larger, 7.7-liter 6-cylinder engine and pushrod overhead valves, the Phantom I was equally well-received.
The Silver Ghost and the Phantom I are the only Rolls-Royce models produced in the United States, which makes these vehicles gems of the American collector car market.
This 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom I, chassis S285RM, features a very sporting Piccadilly Roadster body from the in-house Custom Coach Works.
The car passed through a series of owners and enthusiasts, mostly in the northeastern part of the United States. In February 1963, it was featured in an issue of The Flying Lady by the then-owner Oliver Merrill.
Today, the car is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. This 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantoms made in Springfield, Massachussets, are prized by collectors for their high levels of craftsmanship and engineering, and also as pieces of American automotive history.
Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction is scheduled for January 13-21 at the Westworld complex.
