1932 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Shooting Brake.
Bodied by Bohman and Schwartz of Pasadena, California, this former Phantom II Henley Roadster was converted to this current "shooting brake/estate" coachwork for a trip to Africa that never happened as WW2 heated up.

It's MS122. This number doesn't seem to match for a USA Henley roadster. Who's right? who's wrong? Rob, please!

122MS is a RHD chassis, not a LHD chassis, with a Hooper Coué body, still in existence. So what is the chassis number, and is it RHD or LHD. I know one pic shows RHD...However:
Chassis no. 112MS was ordered without coachwork and sent to Brewsters to be bodied as a Newport Convertible Sedan - the only such example with right hand drive, and upon completion was delivered to a Mrs. Chauncy Clark of Southern California. As legend has it, the Clarks had tremendous good fortune. At the turn of the century, Mr. Clark of Illinois was advised by his doctors to move west to aid his persistant allergy problems. He sold his whiskey business to Mr. Hiram Walker and moved to Arizona. After only a few years, the single largest deposit of copper known was discovered on their property. The Clarks sold their Arizona property and purchased property in Utah. They soon discovered gold on the Utah land. They moved yet again to Santa Fe Springs, and not surprisingly the land was rich with oil! Finally, the Clarks settled in Southern California and divided their time between a ranch in Rancho Santa Fe and a house in Pasadena where Mrs. Clark had her stable of motor cars, including this Phantom II and a Phantom II Henley Roadster.

Mrs. Clark was an avid animal photographer and her interest in this field intensified in the mid 1930s. She decided that she wanted the perfect car to photograph from while on safari. She sent both of her aging Phantoms to Bohman and Schwartz to be rebodied and updated - the Henley to a sedan and 112MS to its present form. Apparently Maurice Schwartz was reluctant to destroy the old Brewster Convertible Sedan coachwork on 112MS, but was ultimately convinced by Chris Bohman to do so. The result is this spectacular Woody fitted with beautiful cabinetry, a shooting roof, removable seating and a polished dash and bonnet. We are told that Bohman and Schwartz were so pleased with the result that the Rolls-Woody was featured on their stand at the 1939 Los Angeles Auto Show. The war put a hold on any trips to Africa on safari with the Rolls, however, in the years following, the Woody saw occasional use at Mrs. Clark's ranch in Rancho Santa Fe.

Chassis 278 AJS (or 266 AJS) 278 AJS is most likely. Second body of course.

I am currently in possession of the phantom 2 45GN, sadly all of the history has been lost apart from the initial build specifications, can you please advise where I can get information regarding the previous Rothschild ownership and also records of the body being made by B and S. Many thanks
