1925 Rolls Royce Phantom 1 Torpedo by Jarvis
Chassis number: 58RC
Registration Number: SV9902
This Rolls Royce Phantom 1 started life as a Park Ward enclosed drive Landaulette. It was rebodied as a torpedo tourer by Jarvis as part of a 20 year ongoing restoration that was completed about 2 decades ago. Masses of bills come with the car detailing the extensive works done to it including a full mechanical rebuild.
The car resided for many years in Newcastle where interestingly it got shot up during the war by some trigger happy German aviators. As a result there is still a bullet hole & assorted shrapnel indentations visible upon the chassis front dumb irons.
The car is finihsed in a very bright & eye catching light blue over black. To the interior is good dark blue leather. The dash contains the usual quota of Rolls Royce instruments & nicely made wooden tool boxes are affixed to the running boards. A slot in screen locates into two holes on the flip up rear cowl affording protection to the rear passengers.
This is a car that has been thoroughly gone though mechanically & as a result both runs and drives beautifully. It comes with tonneau covers & is well suited to touring. A mass of paperwork comes with the car attesting to the extensive rebuild & rebody perfomed upon the car.
The car is very competitively priced & we do not expect to have it long.
