Rolls-Royce 40/50 Phantom I

On Display

The Phantom I was a successor to the Silver Ghost. This example was bought in 1925 by Lord Montagu's father and was used by him until his death in 1929. It was delivered new with bodywork by Hooper & Co. (Coachbuilders) Ltd.

During World War II it was fitted with a mobile canteen body and saw service with the NAAFI (Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes). Later, it was used to tow gang mowers around playing fields in Somerset, before being stored in a dilapidated state on a farmyard. The car was bought by the present Lord Montagu, and reconstructed for the Museum by Leslie Willis.
