Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1930 Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer for sale.A very imposing and impressive Phantom II which comes with copy bills close to £90,000. Most recently a vast amount was spent on the Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer preparing it for the Peking Paris Rally which it handled with aplomb. A further £20K was spent upon its return.
The 1930 Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer is finished in a bright red with black wings with the paint being in really superb condition, not long ago having been done. The front wings are light and sporting descending to the running board in an elegant uninterrupted curve. Rear wings are also light weight. The 1930 Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer is a full four seater and has the option of either a front bench seat or a pair or more comfortable chair style seats giving good lateral support. The bench seat is currently fitted.
The hood is easily erected and mounts via a latch with two thumb screws to the angled ‘V’ windscreen. The spare tyre is rear mounted. There is provision for separate tonneau covers to the front and rear cockpits. A beautifully fabricated spare fuel tank mounting in the boat tail section of the car comes with it; particularly useful for those contemplating long overland trips.
There is also a full set of de-mountable under guards to protect the vital areas from flying rocks etc. encountered in the 'stans. Whilst being set up for long distance overland work, the 1930 Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer also performs wonderfully as a family tourer for less adventurous outings. The current owner regularly taking up his wife and children for picnics and family jaunts. The 1930 Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer has a real presence on the road and a huge wow factor is often awarded from passers by. The Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer car is in mechanically superb order as evidenced by the plethora of paperwork. We simply gave up trying to photograph all the bills as they were so numerous and instead settled for photographing piles of bills sorted by the vendor. Suffice to say, the 1930 Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer is fully rebuilt including a photographic record of the engine rebuild.
Two original manuals also come with the Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer. On the road, the Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer drives perfectly. The Rolls Royce engine is utterly silent, even from cold and starts readily off the retard lever when warm indicating excellent compressions to the bores. The steering is tight with no slop or play in it and the powerful engine wafts one down the road effortlessly. All in all, a really lovely 1930 Phantom II Boat Tail Tourer with a rakish sporting post war body needing absolutely nothing.
