1929 Rolls Royce Phantom 2 Barrel sided tourer.
This car, chassis number 110WJ, came off test at the factory on the 14th October 1929 and was bought by Major Colin Cooper. It was originally fitted with an HJ Mulliner Weymann Saloon body.
110WJ was fitted with its current coachwork in the 90's by marque specialist Ted Overton. Built in the style of a Barker barrel sided tourer, it is the epitome of traveling in style. The dashboard is veneered in a richly coloured flame Mahogany and adorned in period correct instruments, while the rear compartment boasts a drinks cabinet and companion lamps.
The engine has just had a very recent complete and total overhaul at a massive cost. Along with this, a modern fuel pump and a modern ignition coil have been fitted to ensure trouble free touring. The wiring has also been completely renewed using traditional cloth covered wire.
Paintwork is dark blue over black & in perfect condition. To the interior is red leather again in really super order. This is a way way above average car in first rate order with a zero timed engine that is just running in. The engine bay has been detailled to show standards. The aluminium Overton coachwork is imposing, well proportioned & beautifully executed. The V windscreen giving the car a period & rakish appearance. To the rear is a large motoring trunk containing the jacking tools & also the Rolls Royce/Dunlop wheel spanner.
This is a car needing nothing & ready for extended touring. It comes with a full hood that easily unfurls & a split tonneau cover to use for overnights or when the car is unattended. Twin side mount spare wheels are installed adding to the magnificent appearance of the car.
The car has come on the market due to the unfortunate & unexpected passing of the last owner. When he purchased it from us he simply stated that he wanted the best there was & paid us full asking price ofr the car about a year ago. Simce then it has seen sparing but regular use.
