Rolls Royce Hooper & Co Phantom III Limousine for sale
A very solid. correct limousine. stripped of paint. but otherwise undisturbed. including an all-original interior. which is leather throughout. This is a great 1937 Rolls Royce Phantom III with Hooper & co body. The structure is excellent and the doors close with a nice 'clunk'. Recently back in the UK after many years in the USA.
Chassis 3CP42 was despatched from the Rolls Royce factory at Derby on 3 June 1937. It was fitted with engine number J38S and despatched to Hooper & co where on 7 June 1937 Hooper & Co fitted their standard design 6372 limousine body on the chassis with body number 8797.
The first owner. sold through dealers W Watson & Co. was Leonard Thompson of Blackpool. proprietor of Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
It is assumed that the car went to the USA in January 1966 where it remained until recently.
The car is being sold as I currently have 3 Rolls Royce projects on the go and do not have the time to focus on this one at this time and the space this car is taking is required.
I have completed some small work on the car so far:
Shot blasting. acid dipping and powder coating in black all five wheels
With five brand new inner tubes
five brand new Dunlop tyres with original tyre tread pattern matching those removed due to being heavily perished which I believe to be the originals
Replacement of an original jacking leg
Battery box also shot blasted. acid dipped and power coated in black
Engine requires re-commissioning and comes with original carburettor in box and air filter
Viewing recommended by appointment only
The car comes with a thick file of history and has a full V5.
Further pictures are available on request. please don't hesitate to contact me.
