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 integral engine-gearbox unit. Hotchkiss drive. 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 x 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 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. 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.

Between 1929 and 1935 around 1. 70 of these chassis were built. br/>being available in 144″ and 150″ wheelbase lengths. the former
being used for the Continental models. These chassis were very
popular with the major coachbuilders of the day and some truly
glorious cars were made.

First sold on 13th August. 1934 to Barker and Company of
66-68 South Audley Street. London and fitted with enclosed
limousine bodywork. it was delivered to Lord Leverhulme of 39 Brook
Street. London.

William Hesketh Lever was born on 19th September. 1851 and in
1885. the Lever brothers entered the soap business by buying a
small soap and cleaning product works in
Warrington. William Lever. as he was known
prior to Lord Leverhulme. built Britain's largest company and. in
so doing. made the first modern multinational and thanks to
William's marketing acumen. within a decade of its launch. it is on
sale in 134 countries.

In 1906. William stands for and is elected as a Member of
Parliament for the Liberal Party in the Wirral constituency. He
will go onto become a baronet. a Lord and even a High Sheriff. The
'Hulme' part of his name is added in honour of his wife combining
his family name with that of his wife's at his insistence and is
against all precedents.

This fine Barker Limousine was restored in 2002 and retains its
original engine. YP35. The interior. finished in maroon. is
complemented with rear mounted occasional seats and a centrally
mounted roll-top cocktail cabinet. The vendor informs us that. br/>together with the brakes. the complete cooling system has been
overhauled and runs cold at all times holding a constant
manufacturer's stated oil pressure. A complete brand new exhaust
system. front to back. has been fitted and BLE 685 was recently
fully serviced and with over £4. 00 spent on the car within the
last 12 months. The car drives beautifully and always starts
without any problems in all weathers having benefitted from having
an electric fuel pump conversion and battery isolator. Still
retaining original features such as P100 headlamps. twin mounted
fog lights and original twin Lucas horns and twin side mounted
spare wheels with mirrors. this is a wonderful example of the
marque. Supplied with a UK V5C document. it still retains its
original registration number as evidenced by the old tax disc and
comes complete with a set of Rolls-Royce build sheets and an
original Phantom II handbook. An absolutely stunning example
that has presence. power and grace.
