Rolls-Royce Phantom Phantom III Hooper Crocodile Roof Sedanca 1939 for sale




Coming Soon!!!1939 Rolls Royce Phantom IIIChassis Number: 3-DH-1Registration number: TBAA very late Phantom 3 in concours condition. The car was ordered new by the Marquise Maria-Suzanne de Villeroy. It was scheduled to be the Earls Court show car in 1939 but the show was cancelled at the last moment due to the onset of hostilities. The car instead shipped to New York on SS the Western Prince in Februay of 1940 for delivery to The Marquise at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.This car underwent a nut & bolt restoration by The noted Black Hawk collection in Danville California, the results of which are stunning. The car then resided for many years in a prominent German collection.Coachwork is by Hooper & takes the form of a four light Crocodile roof Sedanca sports sallon with division. The rear roof section hinges open allowing the metal front Sedanca unit to slide back under it before closing again leaving it concealed. Being a Phantom three, the interior space is capacious in the extreme with acres of room to the rear & plenty of room for the driver to seat themselves in comfort.To the interior is grey west of England cloth to the rear with matching grey carpets & headlining. The front seats & door cards are of perfect black hide with complimentary black Wilton carpets. Highly figured burr walnut is fitted throughout & is in perfect mirror finished condition.The exterior is finished in Masons Black with the paint having been done to a superb quality standard. The car has twin encased side mounts, twin trumpet horns & a centre spot light making for an imposing frontal appearance.Having just emerged from the collection the car is being serviced by Marque Specialist Kenworthy Engineering & having one or two minor items attended to in order to bring it up to concours winning standards. Underneath the car is as fine as it is on top. Likewise under the bonnet the engine is well detailed. The engine runs in silence & more importantly runs cool with excellent oil pressure.To restore a tired Phantom III to this condition costs a small fortune, takes a couple of years & costs far far in excess of the asking price of this car. When you drive one o f these in like new condition throughout, you come to realize just what special cars they are when in perfect order. This car represents the pinnacle of Phantom III development being one of the very last of the series produced.More pictures may be viewed on our web site at: http://www.vintagerollsroycecars.com/sales/593/1939-rolls-royce-phantom-iii-crocodile-roof-sedanca/Office 01375 379719Richard Biddulph 07967 260673Adi 07960 781930We accept Credit/Debit Cards.Part Exchange welcome.Weekend & evening viewings OK.Viewings by appointment :Prestige House.9 Globe Industrial Estate,Grays, Essex, RM17 6ST
