Rolls-Royce 40/50 Phantom 2 Cabriolet by Kitchener & Woodwiss 1930

Allmän beskrivning : 1930 Rolls Royce Phantom 2 Cabriolet by Kitchener & Woodiwiss

Chassis number: 205GY
Registration number: GSL153

 A magnificent open cabriolet supplied new to France.  The car wears open cabriolet coachwork by Kitchener & Woodwiss the provenance of which we are researching.  The chassis plate is of the export type for cars that were sent to France.

Previously the car was maintained by Ristes Motor Company receiving a full engine build including white metal bearings. Engine build sheets available for inspection. Restored by Ristes in the 1990s and having done little mileage since.  Massive bills come with the car attesting to the fastidious restoration work that went into it. The car is fitted with hydraulic power steering making it finger tip light to steer at low speeds but could easily be removed if authenticity was required.  I have to say however that being able to twirl the steering wheel with finger tip lightness in confined parking areas is indeed a pleasure not usually associated with manoueveing a big phantom.

The car is finished in a pleasing colur scheme of dark blue over a blue/grey colour; a scheme that suits the car admirably.  The hood is of blue mohair in excellent order & stows neatly under a matching blue cover.  To the interior is grey leather again in very good condition.  An auster style screen makes a show of protecing the rear passengers.  A full set of side screens comes with the car but have not been deployed during the last two decades of ownership as the roof alone provides adequate protection from inclement conditions.

Driving this car is a real pleasure.  The engine is silent & powerful allowing for easy 60MPH cruising.  Gear changes are seamless once mastered & the brakes pull the car up sharply with sufficient force to lock the wheels.  A commodious motoring trunk is mounted to the rear of the car.  I have to stress how well this car drives with the engine having a very sporting manner to it allowing the car to proceed at slightly unseemly speeds when pressed upon to do so.  Water temperature remains cool at 70 degrees & oil pressure is very good.

This is a Phantom that has a real presence & wow factor on the road garnering attention of the right kind wherever it is seen. The coachwork is both rakish & elegant. It is in simply impeccable mechanical condition & is a credit to the current owner who purchased it in the year 2000 two decades ago.
