1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Sports Saloon by Thrupp & Maberly
Chassis number: 29TA
Registration Number: 334XUS
Sold by us previously in 2008 to Italy. This car has just arrived back with us & is having a full service done by noted marque specialists Kenworthy & Co Vintage Motor works. In addition to a full service & set up a brand new clutch is also being fitted so the car will be in perfect condition ready for extended use.
Chassis 29TA still wears its original & rakish Thrupp & Maberly sports saloon body and is trimmed in blue-grey hides with an exquisite burled walnut interior. This is one of only three Phantom 2 Continentals bodied by Thrupp & Maberly. The leather is in really good order thoughout. Carpets are again in good condition & are powder blue. Its two-toned mid blue over pale blue exterior still features special-order components from new, dual side-mounted spare wheels, a retractable rear luggage rack, a full-size sliding sunshine roof, Ace deluxe wheel discs, a centre driving light, and dual “Wind tone” trumpet horns.
Records validate this Rolls-Royce’s participation in numerous concours events, meets, and tours since it was first delivered to its original owner, F. Parkinson, Esq. A documented history of the car with a good assortment of bills validates its significant life, with many decades spent in the forgiving climate of California. Photographs of the car appeared in the esteemed Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club publication The Flying Lady, as well as on page 241 of the definitive publication The Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental by Raymond Gentile. The front quarterlights are interesting in that when the winder is turned one way the quarterlight pivots open & when turned the other it slides down in to the door.
Once the service work is complete we will be conducting a proper photo shoot of the car. This is a big grand car with particularly stylish & rakish coachwork with real presence on the road. It is fast & powerful with a strong engine & is very comfortable at speed.
