1930 Rolls Royce Phantom II by Harrison
Chassis number 167XJ
Registration number GF8793 (short chassis.)
A particularly good driving car having had a major engine rebuild & a Tim Payne overdrive fitted. The car belonged to the late Terry Cohn who clearly lavished a lot of money on it.
The coachwork is that of an enclosed drive limousine by Harrison & son. Although fitted with a division the car has a sports saloon appearance to it & is very comfortable for an owner driver.
The paintwork is two tone coffee over cream & in good condition. The car has white wall tyres all round which suit the cars colour scheme well. Inside there is beige lather to the front & velvet cloth to the rear again all in very pleasant useable order. The woodwork & headlining is also excellent. To the rear is a cloth covered boot containing a full set of small tools. Dual spares adorn the running boards. A 28 gallon fuel tank was specified when new for longer touring. A cocktail cabinet is fitted to the rear bulkhead as are twin occasional seats.
Mechanically the car is superb. The engine starts instantly & runs equally well on either coil or Magneto. The engine has super compression & starts easily off the retard lever when warmed up. The one shot system is working well providing lubrication throughout the chassis. The electrics have been rewired, the dynamo overhauled & a full flow oil filter fitted along with a stainless steel exhaust system.
The original owner Mr Philipson of Richmond Yorkshire ordered the car through Car Mart of Park Lane on 23rd October 1929. The car may be viewed by prior appointment in Jersey near St Hellier.
