Description

Owned by Sir James Cayzer on his large Scottish estate at Kinpurnie castle for over 60 years, this Phantom 111 proudly wears the Cayzer family coat of arms to the rear doors, and it was used to ferry many VIP guests to and from the Castle, which included many senior members of the Royal family, more often his great friend Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. The Rolls-Royce Phantom III was the final large pre-war Rolls-Royce. Introduced in 1936, it replaced the Phantom II, and it was the only V12 Rolls-Royce, until the 1998 introduction of the Silver Seraph. Only 727 V12 Phantom III chassis were constructed from 1936 to 1939, and many have survived. Although chassis production ceased in 1939 (with one final chassis being built in 1940), cars were still being bodied and delivered in 1940 and 1941. The Phantom III model was the last project that Henry Royce worked on, he died, aged 70, a year into the Phantom III's development. Chassis number 3-DL-74 wears Sedanca De VIlle coachwork by The Royal coach builders Hooper and features the crocodile roof configuration where as the rear roof section lifts and front section slides back under. Presented in magnificent condition with the Rolls-Royce V12 in perfect running order, and as you would expect, silky smooth. The gearbox which is equally smooth is fitted with an overdrive, making for a very relaxing drive, and effortlessly cruising at 70mph. 3-DL-74 has been meticulously maintained having formed part of one of this countries most prominent Rolls Royce collections owned by Sir James Cayzer.
