The year 1929 saw the introduction of the Phantom II.
There were a host of improvements over the Phantom I. the most
important of which concerned the chassis layout. The separate
gearbox torque-tube drive and cantilever rear springing gave way to
the PII's integral engine-gearbox unit. Hotchkiss drive. br/>hypoid-bevel rear axle and semi-elliptic rear springs. The
chassis was constructed with channel steel side-members and tubular
cross-members. Fit and finish were. as to be expected.
to the highest standards. Engine dimensions remained the same as
the Phantom I at 4¼ by 5½ inches and displacing 7. 6 litres.
The overhead valve arrangement was retained. but a new cylinder
head was designed with intake and exhaust manifolds on opposite
sides yielding greater performance. Dual ignition was
continued as well. with battery ignition on one side of the engine
and magneto on the other. each with its own set of plugs. The
Phantom II was built only at Derby. and continued into
1935. However. a quantity of PII chassis made up with
lefthand steering and some other features meant for the American
market in the AJS and AMS series were exported to the USA in
1931-1933. These are the only Phantom II cars with lefthand
drive. Most. but not all. of the lefthand drive cars were
equipped with Brewster & Co. coachwork after arrival in the
USA. In 1931. to meet the need for a speedier vehicle. the Company
produced a specially-tuned car. the 'Continental' model of the
Phantom II. The first of these. chassis 26EX. was built at
Derby on the twelve-foot wheelbase. All passengers were brought
within the wheelbase dimensions in construction of the coachwork on
these chassis; special springs were used. and the spare wheels were
often mounted at the rear rather than in the front fender
wells. These cars achieved an actual timed speed of 90mph
with full equipment and relatively heavy enclosed coachwork. all
beyond 2½ tons in weight. This was outstanding performance for a
big car of that day.

This Rolls-Royce Phantom II was originally supplied in 1929 as a
Park Ward Limousine to a Mr. W W Worthington in the United
Kingdom. At some point in the 1970's or 80's this Phantom II
was shipped to the USA where the car received the boat tail body
that is fitted today. and after returning to the UK in 2005. the
new owner planned to replace the coachwork with a body similar to
the original 15EX speedster body but never completed the project.
The vendor informs us that the engine runs smoothly and drives
well. Finished with the timber back and metal work finished in
black with black leather interior. this Rolls-Royce Phantom II is
supplied with a V5C registration document and a set of chassis
cards supplied by the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club. This is an
opportunity to purchase a restoration project that requires
cosmetic work to the mechanics and the chance to re-body the car in
any imaginative style the new owner may wish; perhaps a Gurney
Nutting Owen Sedanca Coupé.
