With the majority of Rolls-Royce Phantom Vs bodied by Mulliner Park Ward, a mere 108 chassis were sent to James Young for sleek limousine coachwork, like this car. All were custom ordered and, therefore, no two were exactly alike. Among collectors, the uniquely graceful and elegant lines of James Young’s design no. PV22 are highly favored over the more angular Mulliner Park Ward bodies.

No expense was spared when this impressive James Young-bodied Phantom V Touring Limousine was built-to-order for its first owner, Mr. Berman of Miami. A left-hand-drive, US-delivery example, this Rolls-Royce was specified with rare and desirable Lucas P100 headlamps and Marchal marker lamps, as well as air-conditioning, electric windows, a radio, and whitewall tires. The commodious passenger area features beautiful walnut cabinetry (containing twin drop-down picnic trays and a concealed bar) and folding opera seats, while an electric division window provides privacy from the driver.

The Phantom V is among the most exclusive of all early postwar Rolls-Royce cars, and the example offered here is unique beyond measure. Believed to have always resided on the East Coast, this rare James Young Touring Limousine, finished in an era-correct sable over black with a complementary tan interior, is sure to be welcomed at the most prestigious RROC events and poised to become the crown jewel of its fortunate new owner’s collection.
