1925 Rolls Royce Phantom 1 Towncar by Barker
Custom coachwork by Barker
Very high quality
OHV Six cylinder engine
Chassis# 31 MC
One of the first Phantom 1's built and one of the most expensive. Custom Coupe deVille coachwork by Barker on the rare 150 inch long wheelbase. This car was originally built for Edward Guinle of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil one of the wealthiest men in Brazil in the 1920's. This car had over fifty special features including rear instrument panel, elaborate interior wood trim, Zeiss headlamps, french coach lamps and silver handles. In 1925 the original cost of this car was almost $20,000 dollars dilivered to Brazil. This is a wonderful Phantom 1 and is extremely impressive.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
