Engine: Inline 6-cylinder 7.6 litre overhead valve | Transmission: 4-speed manual | Bodystyle: Roadster

Marque and model history: After its twenty year production run came to an end, the Silver Ghost needed a worthy successor. The new model launched in 1925 was named the New Phantom (later called the Phantom I), and lived up to the spirit of the Silver Ghost in every way. While it carried over the same chassis design with improvements, the big story was the all new six-cylinder engine of larger capacity and new overhead valve design. Naturally soon after launch these fine automobiles were made available in India right from the start.

Provenance: This 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom I was delivered new to Sir Maneckji Dadabhoy, originally with a Hooper Limousine coachwork. Later in its life the car was rebodied in Calcutta to a sporty and handsome roadster body, that it wears to this date.
