Description:

1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom PHAMTOM III V12

YOU'RE BIDDING ON A RARE 1937 ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM III V12 HOOPER LIMO DESIGN NUMBER 658. IT IS THE ONLY HOOPER BUILT TO THIS DESIGN !!! OVER $75K IN THIS CAR SINCE 2014.
CHASSIS NUMBER 3AX75,
ORIGINAL FACTORY ENGINE NUMBER B64Y
FIRST SOLD IN CANADA WHERE IT SPENT MOST OF ITS LIFE, ORDERED ON MAY 5TH 1936 BY MRS. ELEANOR ELIZABETH MORGAN OF WAVERLY MANSION, GRAND AVENUE LONDON, ONTARIO.
MRS. MORGAN WAS AWARDED THE BRITISH HONOR, BY ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE FOR HER WORK IN WORLD WAR I FOR THE RED CROSS. SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF THOMAS HENRY SMALLMAN, FOUNDER OF THE IMPERIAL OIL COMPANY AND THE WIDOW OF COLONEL CLAUDE MORGAN OF THE BRITISH ARMY. HER BROTHER, COLONEL JOHN ELTON SMALLMAN, OWNED PHANTOM III CHASSIS 3AX47, ALSO BY HOOPER COMPANY.
THIS PHANTOM III IS IN INCREDIBLE ORIGINAL CONDITIO, WITH ALL ORIGINAL INTERIOR THAT HAS NEVER BEEN RESTORED. THE WOOD IS ALSO ALL ORIGINAL AND IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE CLOTH REAR SEATS ARE IN GREAT CONDITION AS ARE THE DOOR PANELS.
THE THIRD (AND MOST RECENT) OWNER OF THE CAR STRIPPED THE HOOD TO BARE METAL. HIS INTENTION WAS TO REPAINT THE CAR, BUT HE NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO DO IT AS HE PASSED AWAY UNEXPECTEDLY. I PURCHASED THIS AUTOMOBILE KNOWING HOW VERY ORIGINAL THE CAR WAS. I  FINISHED STRIPPING THE CAR TO BARE METAL, BUT THIS TIME, IT WAS THE ENTIRE CAR.
THIS CAR HAS NEVER BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A BETTER BODY ON A P3. THERE IS NO SIGN OF RUST OR CORROSION. THE RUNNING BOARDS ARE CURRENTLY MADE OUT OF STEEL BUT COULD BE FASHIONED OUT OF ALUMINUM TO MATCH THE REST OF THE CAR. THIS CAR WOULD LOOK FANTASTIC IN AN ALL-ALUMINUM BRUSHED FINISH WITH ACE HUB CAPS! ORIGINAL HUB CAPS ARE INCLUDED.
THE BODY ON THIS CAR IS ROCK SOLID, DOORS HAVE ZERO SAG OR FLEX, THE CHASSIS IS SUPER CLEAN AND PAINTED BLAC, THE MOTOR RUNS GREAT. IT HAS A NEW BORLA STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM.
MANY FACTORY ARTICLES ARE INCLUDED, SPECTRE, P3 TECHNICAL SOCIETY NEWSLETTERS FROM DAY 1, ALL BUILD SHEETS AND ALL CORRESPONDENCE FROM MRS. MORGAN TO HOOPER ABOUT WHAT SHE WANTED IN HER CAR. THE DOCUMENTS AND PARTS DRAWINGS, ETC WOULD FILL A WHOLE FILE CABINET DRAWER.
THIS CAR WOULD BE VERY EASY TO FINISH. THE CHROME IS IN GREAT SHAPE, GRILL IS VERY NICE AS ARE HEADLIGHTS.
(QUESTIONS, CALL 714-791-3038). THIS CAR, ONCE PAINTED OR BRUSH-FINISHED, WILL BE A FANTASTIC ONE-OFF PHANTOM V12 THAT IS BEAUTIFUL, RARE AND ELEGAN, WITH ROLLS ROYCE'S FINEST CHASSIS EVER MADE.
I RECENTLY SPENT $20K HAVING THE CAR SERVICED BY A LOCAL ROLLS ROYCE DEALER. SERVICE INCLUDED: NEWLY REBUILT GAS TANK, FUEL LINES, CARBURETOR OVERHAUL, CHECK BRAKES, NEW MAHOGANY WOOD REAR CROSS SECTION, PAINT REMOVAL AND STRIPPING.
I WILL CONTINUE TO UPLOAD MORE PHOTOS OF THE CAR SO CONTINUE TO WATCH THE AUCTION FOR MORE UPDATES. SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE AT BUYER'S EXPENSE. CAR IS AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION AT THE LOCAL ROLLS ROYCE DEALER. THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION. HIGHEST BIDDER GETS THE CAR!
