Known History From New
This 1932 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Brewster Huntington Limousine (251 AJS) was delivered new to Mrs. R. Waverly Smith of New York City. The car was delivered on Christmas Eve, 1932 to her home address of Glen Cove, Ritz Carlton Hotel in Long Island, NY.
The car was then sold on December 1st, 1939 to Mr. F.B. Pratt of Long Island, NY.
The car was listed for sale in the Flying Lady Classified in 1955 from a New York address. That photo shows the car in black with black wall tires and wheel discs.
The car was then purchased by Mr. Dale Powers from a lady in Miami, FL in 1976 and subsequently sold to the current owner a Sarasota county Rolls Royce enthusiast in 1977.
Eventually the motor was rebuildt, new camshaft, lifters, sleeves, rings, etc. done by Dale Powers Automotive of St. Petersburg, FL. The current owner rebuilt the radiator after a leak was discovered. It remained in the current owners garage compound in Venice, FL until delivered to our Showroom. The odometer reads 66,428 reflecting most likely original miles, and approximately 2,000 since rebuild.
During the summer of 2011, Recent service included valve adjustment replacing the electrical fuel pump system and cleaning and repairing the original starter. The autovac unit has been cleaned, repainted and reinstalled. However fuel is delivered through the electrical pump system. The motor compartment has been painstakingly cleaned and detailed. After removing old cylinder block paint, we discovered the motor number E55B on both cylinder blocks, crankcase, motor mounts, steering box, starting card, and several other parts.
We can report that the motor runs smoothly, evenly with an impressive exhaust note. All motor numbers and motor parts have build sheet matching original numbers.
The fenders and body have been recently stripped, and been beautifully painted in Masons Black with polished alloy bonnet sides. The car is equipped with 6 newly polished wheel discs. Many newly rechromed body parts such as headlights; fenders (wings), front and rear bumpers, wing lamps, bumper badges, and rear tail light were professionally refinished.
The chassis is clean, painted and proper. New gaitors have been installed on the front and rear of the chassis.
The interior upholstery has been freshly installed by a marquee specialist. New black leather front seats, and complete West of England cloth rear compartment complimented with beautiful original, newly refinished in lacquer wood trim. Finishing touches include new silk screens for privacy, beautiful accents on interior and glossy black trunk for rear of car. The top and headliner have been completely restored in period correct fabrics. This exquisite Phantom II, has been beautifully restored and is ready for the next show, or RROC driving tour.
