1972 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI Enclosed Limousine
£165,000 | Location: United Kingdom
This immaculate Phantom VI comes to us from a long term ownership covering some 36 years, where she has had seldom use but thorough and regular maintenance.
The order was placed for this Phantom VI on 30/09/1971 by Patrick Barthropp (Cardiff), he wanted his Phantom to be the finest around and he had a fine eye for detail; the “Special Features” from Rolls-Royce are detailed below.
Shaded Sundym Glass to the windscreen.
Flag Mast to be fitted to the roof.
Chrome specification, including wing mouldings, swage line moulding, front & rear lamps and centre door pillars, to be the same as the car made for the Ruler of Bahrain (special attention to be paid to make sure that this chrome is perfect with extra thick chromium) as discussed with O.S. At Crewe.
Special attention to be paid to quality of rear springs and the hinges which prevent the doors springing back when open.
Special Hand holds to rear.
Centre Console in lighter wood to include Television, Radiomobile.
‘Stereo 8’ tape Player (Crewe to supply) and Cocktail Bar.
Paint colour- Coffee Bean Brown
Hide-Brown throughout piped with off-white hide.
Headlining - Off-White Hide.
Carpet - Dark Brown.
Just from the order it is clear to see how meticulous Patrick Barthropp was, he only wanted the best of the best and that quality still remains today.
The coffee bean brown paintwork is blemish free and holding a high level of sheen, the colour works excellently and it nicely broken up by the all round chrome work, and gold coachline.
Whether you are sitting in the front or back the comfort exceptional, original leather throughout in excellent almost un-worn condition, even if you are chauffeur driving you manage to feel like royalty as you gently glide along the road. The rear compartment comfortably fits five people thanks to the occasional seats, the division can be operated from the front or rear and beneath the television is the original cocktail cabinet (Brandy not included). There is a lambswool rug to the floor, allowing for the softest of feelings on your feet.
When you open up the boot you are again met by a lambswool rug, there are also two perfectly made seats that fit on the overriders and allow you to perch yourself; perfect for Ascot.
The big V8 fires instantly at the turn of a key and the second the choke comes off you are met by silence. Along the road she is a true magic carpet ride and is more than capable for long distance touring.
A true masterpiece in the finest of conditions, in our showroom and ready for viewing. A full service has recently been done along with lots of minor details being sorted to the tune of £7,000 pounds, so the car is absolutely ready for use.
