1960 Rolls Royce Phantom V
(by James Young)
Number of Passengers: 7
This 1960 Rolls Royce Phantom V (Touring Limousine, by James Young) is extremely rare and unique. Only 195 of these hand crafted gems were made between 1959 and 1968. The Phantom has always been the largest and most expensive Rolls Royce made. Some of the wealthiest people in the world still clamor for this particular model for two reasons. Only 19-20 were hand built each year and the James Young version is considered the best looking Phantom V … almost sculptural in its elegance. Just how elegant is a Phantom? Another one we had in 2005 (similar to this one, but not quite as nice) was used for a L’Oreal commercial, starring Charlize Theron, and directed by David Lynch (director of The Elephant Man). This was a large budget production shot during two days at Paramount Studios. They could afford to get any car they wanted. They chose our Rolls Royce Phantom V.
The one we have now, is even more special. It is the only Phantom V for hire on the West Coast. It used to be the National Head of State Parade Car of Canada
. It was used during the administration of Lord Beaverbrook
, who was a cabinet member for Sir Winston Churchill
. Due to Lord Beaverbrook’s efforts and success, he was given the job of administering the country of Canada by Queen Elizabeth. You are looking at the Rolls Royce Queen Elizabeth was chauffeured in
, during her State visits to Canada. This super exclusive vehicle comes with gorgeous white paint, burled French walnut wood, new carpets, and new front and rear air-conditioning. She also has an electric dividing window and a fully stocked bar. This beauty seats 5 in the back, plus 2 up front. If you want the ultimate in style, prestige and space, you’ve already found it.
