1936 Rolls Royce Phantom III

Price: POA Mileage: n/a

This Freestone and Webb Phantom III Touring Limousine was built in 1936 and owned by the boss of English Talbot Motor Company, a Mr Frederick Wilcock. Mr Wilcock agreed to loan the car to the Ministry of War Transport on condition that it did not cross the Channel, because he did not want it blown up or shot at.

The Phantom was subsequently regularly used by General Montgomery to commute between his home in Virginia Waters and London. It is known as the 'green car' because it is painted black and British racing green, whilst Monty's other Rolls Royces were plain black.

Unfortunately Mr Wilcock's plan to preserve the car backfired on him. After D-Day the Phantom was reassigned to the Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force General Carl Spaatz and an American fuel tanker backed into it causing some damage, which has since been repaired.

Powered by a smooth running 7338cc V12 engine, with a four speed gearbox and Laycock overdrive. This is a remarkably original and historically significant motor car, which was involved in the recent D-Day commemorations and was paraded at the recent Goodwood Revival. Complete with extensive historical documentation.
