1925 ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM I BARKER BOATTAIL


1925 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM I
BARKER BOATTAIL
ID# 9LC
THIS UNIQUE CAR, KNOWN AS THE SCHEHEREZADE MODEL, WAS BUILT FOR THE MAHARAJAH OF BIKANER FOR USE AS A HUNTING CAR ON HIS 23,000 SQUARE MILES OF PROPERTY. DELIVERED BY BARKER & CO. COACHBUILDERS ON FEBRUARY 24, 1926, THE UNUSUAL THREE-PASSENGER SPORTS BODY WAS DESIGNED ON THE LONGER 150" WHEELBASE CHASSIS WITH SPECIAL SUSPENSION FOR THE LIGHTWEIGHT COACHWORK AND FOR HIGH SPEED. THE CAR SERVED TWO OTHER RAJAS BEFORE GOING INTO STORAGE; IT WAS DISCOVERED BY AN AMERICAN WOMAN AND IN 1962 IT WAS SHIPPED TO THE U. S. THE UNUSUAL TEAR-SHAPED PONTOON AMMUNITION BOXES ARE USED AS RUNNING BOARD STEP PLATES, AND THE GUN RACK ON THE GUN BEARER’S SIDE CAN ACCOMMODATE TWO RIFLES WHICH CAN BE CLAMPED WHILE THE CAR IS UNDERWAY. THIS BARKER SPORTS TORPEDO WAS FIRST SHOWN AT THE PEBBLE BEACH CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE IN 1980 WHERE IT WON AN AWARD; AFTER BEING ON DISPLAY FOR SOME 15 YEARS, IT WAS INVITED TO PEBBLE BEACH AGAIN IN 1995, A TESTAMENT TO THE CRAFTSMANSHIP OF ITS EARLIER RESTORATION.

THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN SOLD. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST.
