Thanks Rob for great photos, especially the interior. The car has been in Lancashire, England, since 1990

3AZ50, Drop Head Sedanca Coupe as supplied to H.M. King Carol II of Romania. Anybody knows where this one is?

Rob, unfortunately no-one has heard of this car since it was delivered to the King in September 1936. That's sad, especially as its twin (3AZ158) was sold for a cool 1.145 million Euro just last year.
The King's other Phantom III, the Park Ward saloon with division (ex Jack Barclay Trials car) 3CP34, was still in Bucharest in 1948, so at least it survived the War. Was it shipped off to Russia and sits in a dacha waiting to be discovered? Maybe not....

Steve


1948 Bucharest had at least 5 Rollses in the Ministerial fleet, at least 4 of which were taken from the former royal garages. The only other documentation I know of is from 1956 where a military driving school is described as owning a Rolls - the only one in Army use. So I fear none of the Romanian cars had a happy ending; I certainly know of no pre-war Rollses existing in the 60s, 70s, or 80s, although never say never!

Offered for sale as a major project, without engine.
One wonders how someone can let this happen to such a wonderful specimen...

Some more of the Drop Head Sedanca Coupe

As you know Rob,my father owned 3AZ158 when she was in Melbourne in the 60s and early 70s before selling her to Coys of Kensington who in turn sold her to The Blackhawk Museum in the USA.
At the time he sold her for the then price of a brand new Rolls Royce Silver Shadow (1973) At the time Bob Jane was offering his Maserati 300s and his one owner Jaguar E-type lightweight for less money in Australia.


Having bought her in 1968 for $4,000 Aus dollars ,in fine order ,during his ownership he gave her some paint ,retrimmed the leather from white to the light tan ,fitted a spot lamp to the front ,re did the wood ,which he chopped up an old piano made of the correct wood and mirrored it on both sides and repainted the rocker covers and enjoyed her ,often driving her into his business in Collins st Melbourne .

I have such fond memories of that wonderful car ,so many rallies ,he always ran her with the front half f the roof open.

She carried the Victorian rego number 130.

She arrived in Melbourne in about 1955 bought in by Mr Bernard Dowd who was the sponsor of the Miss Australia quest,in the mid 6os he sold her to a Mr Rice who in turn as an old man my father bought her.

Coys of Kensington ,I'm not sure what but they did the wrong thing by my father ,ever the trader he kept the hand book and took the chassis plate of the car,till this day he still has them.And hundred's of wonderful photos of that car...few photos I own of her.[img][img][/img][/img] err how do i post a photo?

Hi Rob
You know that the car is now owned by Sir Michael Kadoorie in Hong Kong? Be in touch with me and I can loan you the book he had written about the car (I an be contacted at phantom3@bigpond.net.au).

To add a photo to this, go to the bottom of the screen where it says "Filename", click to the right on "Choose File" (which will be on your computer somewhere) then click the "Add the file" box on the right. This blog won't accept really big files.

Steve

That would be great Steve,I bought your book on the Phantom 111s last year ,well done .very enjoyable.

I wish i had known there was a book on 3AZ158,as I'd be about the only person of my fathers period of ownership with some delightful stories during his ownership.

I bumped into Fred English at the Canberra RROC rally,when Owen sold the car,he got Fred to do dozens of photos of the car,Fred would still have them as does Owen.
Owen also has some great book size period photos of the P111 that Don Busch restored in the 50s ,which are body off photos ,amazing job.

Thanks for the kind words about the Phantom III book, Rob. It was fun doing it.

The book about the Gurney Nutting car was commissioned by new owner Sir Michael Kadoorie, and was in very limited numbers, and not for sale commercially I don't think.
