1926 Rolls Royce Phantom I chassis #56SC for restoration

History of Phantom I #56SC.

56SC was bought on 25th Nov. 1925 to H.A. Hamshaw Ltd of Leicester for their clients Ernest Howard & Catherine Broadhurst of Rothley Temple, Chester, Leicestershire. 56SC was first registered on 28th Apr. 1926 and delivered on 19th May 1926. Ernest H. Broadhurst (1877-1951) was a director-owner of Tootal, Broadhust & Lee, cotton, silk and wool manufacturers, est. 1876 in Newton Heath, Lancaster. In 1916 he married Catherine Rayner Brooks (1860-1949), a rich widow. They leased Rothley Temple for 37 years (1912-1949) but when Catherine died, Ernest removed to a less emotional place in the neighbourhood, “Springkell”, Swithland Lane, Rothley, Leicestershire (1949-1951). The Broadhursts were good Rolls-Royce customers. They owned the following chassis:
Silver Ghost #1298 (1910) a Barker tourer,
Silver Ghost #66AE (1920) a Midland Counties limousine,
PI #56SC (1926) a Hooper enclosed drive limousine,
PII #107MW (1933) a Hooper enclosed drive limousine,
Wraith WHC25 (1939) a Park Ward limousine.
Interestingly, 56SC was ordered with steel artillery wheels, which must have looked very old-fashioned and which offered a very rough ride. The body style chosen by E.H. Broadhurst was an enclosed drive limousine by Hooper (body #6517). Only one photo of 56SC with its original body is known to exist. It carries Bowers negative number H.528. The original print is kept in the Hooper archive at the Science Museum, Wroughton, Swindon SN4 9LT, which is a branch of the London Science Museum.
In 1936 the car passed to Pennsylvania-born dentist William Luther Croll (1861-1938) of 14 Fitzhardinge Street, London W1 and his second wife Alice. He previously owned a Silver Ghost #10CB, also with Hooper limousine body.
In the late 1930s, 56SC was operated by A. Cain (Funeral Directors) Ltd of 81 Uxbridge Road, Hanwell, London W7.
Albert George Cane aka Cain, (Funeral Directors Ltd), est. in 1902, is still in business in 2017 in Hanwell & 38 Coldharbour Lane, Hayes, UB3 3EP. (”We are now celebrating the fifth generation of the family to enter the company. Nigel Murray and Simon Murray as the Primary Directors.")
After Albert died on 28th Dec. 1938, the car was inherited by one of his two daughters, Margaret Ellen Cane, aka Cain, who lived at the same address, 81 Uxbridge Road, Hanwell, London W7. It is believed that during the Cains' ownership, the limousine body was replaced with a hearse.
The next known owner was David E.C. Roberts from 1967 to the early 1970s. He was a member of the British Phrenological Society and he lived at 6 Broad Street, Teddington, Middlesex. He later moved to 5 Queen's Road where he is the owner of an antique store and antique restoration business. During his ownership, 56SC was described as a tourer, and the remnants of that body were still on the chassis when shown at the RREC Annual Rally at Kelmarsh Hall in June 2009.
It was offered for sale by Mr David Edgar Sainsbury (b. 1948) of The Street, Manor Farm, Castle Eaton, Swindon, Wiltshire, SN6 6JZ. Purchased by present owner in July 2015.

The chassis today:
The PI #56SC has still its matching engine #CN85, 6 cyl. 7.7 L, and genuine components: 4 speed gearbox, excellent frame, torque tube, radiator, dynamo, magneto, starter, steering system, breaking system, all in good condition considering it is 92 years old un-restored chassis.

Correct hood ornament (flying lady), 3 spare wheels, spare dynamo, spare carburetor plus parts, electrical fittings, replica coil with modern core and ballast resistor, ultra rare Carl Zeiss headlamps (huge 31 cm) with correct glasses, luggage rack of Rolls Royce design, even some tool kit items are with the chassis.
