Produced from 1929 to 1935, the Phantom II was a large improvement over the previous Phantom I. Both cars shared much the same chassis design with the Phantom II having a lower ride height and improved semi-elliptic springs. The large Inline-6 powerplant featured an aluminum head and a twin ignition system which was also new on Phantom II cars.

218AMS-1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Brewster Town Car. Commissioned by C. Matthew Dick of A.B. Dick equipment for his wedding. Unique features included a dramatic V-windshield, gold-plated hardware, vanity cases, indirect lighting, and lambs’ wool carpets.

Built at a cost of $31,000, one of the most expensive produced in the period. Sold by RM Auctions at their Sports Classics of Monterey sale for $2,310,000. Described as one of the greatest Rolls Royces ever built, and quite possible the most significant post WWI Rolls Royce in existence.

This is the only example that received coachwork from Figoni et Falaschi. Commissioned by the Prince of Nepal and the Phantom II was the largest chassis Figoni had ever worked on! Once traded to Captain Frederick Henry for his Bugatti Royale!

It was offered from the 2002 Blackhawk Collection at Pebble Beach for $950 000 USD in 2002.

1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Gentleman’s Sports Saloon – did not sell for €81,276 Just over two years later, 29 TA changed hands for the first time, to Hans Barnard Hankley, of Old Bond Street, London, who kept the car for the following 10 years, selling to John Trent Ltd in March 1947 who passed ownership to C.A Tanner Esq. of Shepherds Bush in April 1948. The remarkably well-preserved condition of this car is undoubtedly aided by the fact that in February 1953, it was sold to Frank B. Cox, who lived in the forgiving clima. more

1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Special Town Car by Brewster 218AMS – sold for €1,456,000 The story of this epic Rolls-Royce began in 1933, when the U.S. economy was in the depths of the worst depression in history. Luxury items and automobiles were lacking for a market except for the very few who had somehow managed to preserve their fortunes. One of these lucky few was C. Matthew Dick of Washington, D.C. an heir to a major business machine company that attributed its continued success in part to a major increase in U.S. governme. more

Horsefield 87WJ – sold for €61,600 Originally constructed as a sports saloon by Arthur Mulliner of Northampton, chassis 87WJ, a long wheelbase example, was apparently re-bodied by Horsfields in the 1960s in the characteristic Barker barrel-side style. Following its acquisition by Mr. Zach, it was thoroughly restored. Cylinder head corrosion warranted a complete engine rebuild, and a new hood was made from material exactly matching the colour of the buttoned claret leather inter. more

1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Skiff-Bodied Roadster – sold for $198,000 Unique One-Off Skiff Re-creation. No doubt the designer of the car was inspired by the original skiff bodies created by Labourdette and other French carrosseries.

Wood components are joined by pegs and dowels; only the bonnet is not built in this manner, but rather veneered over metal panels to insulate it from the engine heat. Storage compartments are fashioned within the pontoon-shaped running boards as well as aft within the boat-tail itsel. more
