A tall. imposing and impressive car. solidly constructed and in wonderfully sound condition. Amazingly. the car was with one owner for sixty years. from 1955 to 2015. which is probably the longest single ownership we have come across! Prior to that. there were just two owners from 1927 to 1955! Good mechanically. running well. and recently 'back home' from Canada. where the car had spent its entire life. and now UK registered for the first time! Notable features include correct bell headlamps. ‘divers helmet' and triangular stop/tail lamps. twin bar bumpers and twin side-mounted spare wheels.

Chassis No. 98EF Reg No. BF 7660 Price £49. 00

Snippets: Col McLean:

98EF was delivered to Colonel John Bayne MacLean in Toronto 4 weeks before his 65th birthday – perhaps a gift to himself? He was of Scottish descent being the son of Rev Andrew MacLean who was invited to Canada in 1955 by Rev John Bayne of Galt. after who he named his son. J. B. MacLean can claim family ties with Charles Rolls as Charles's mother was Georgina Marcia MacLean. Charles and J. B. MacLean started communicating via letter in 1902 and finally met in 1906 to discuss Rolls setting up an agency in Canada. J. B. MacLean started his career as a reporter then financial editor prior to founding the Canadian Grocer with his brother Hugh in 1887. In 1900 J. B. MacLean married the niece of King Ferdinand II. not bad for a preacher's son! By the end of WWI MacLean & his brother were publishing some 16 titles which by 1950 had increased to in excess of 30 publications. His private life was full of tragedy – in 1911 his wife Anna contracted Polio and in 1919 their only son Hector died from a burst appendix whilst on a camping trip. When J. B. MacLean acquired 98EF he had the car adapted with a brass stanchion in the rear compartment in order to secure Anna's wheelchair. it is still there today. Being of Scottish descent J. B. MacLean was renowned for his frugality – turning out lights. using 20yr old chq stubs as notepaper and in the 1930s he would take fill 98EF with home-grown eggs to take to work in order to sell them to his young employees! Anna MacLean died on the 15th Dec 1949 and her husband the following September. The 2nd owner of 98EF is unknown but he only kept the car for 5 years with the 3rd (& most recent) owner acquiring the car in 1955. This was Jim Kerr who. with his wife. would tour extensively in the Phantom & on one trip drove from London. Ontario to New York City just to buy a replacement Waltham “8-day” clock for the car. a 1. 00 mile return trip!
