This incredible 1928 Phantom I Rolls-Royce Springfield St. Martin Brewster Town Car was purchased new by King C Gillette, inventor of the Gillette Razor and founder of the Gillette Safety Razor Company. It remained under Gillette family ownership until 1964 when it was purchased by the Shochitt family of New York with approximately 13,000 miles at that time. Under the Shochitt family ownership, the car truly became a celebrity in its own right; appearing in numerous movies including The April Fools with Jack Lemmon, The Cotton Club, Putney Swope, and numerous television commercials. It also won first in its class at the 1965 Madison Square Garden Autorama. It remained under the care of the Shochitt family until we were able to acquire it and present it to you today. It remains in incredibly original condition, with its original Wilton Wool carpets, amazing Mahogonhy inlays, and an assortment of tools, factory accessories, and spare wheel hubs that is truly impressive. This car has been wonderfully preserved, and displays the typical patina naturally associated with a car of this age. While cosmetically it remains largely original, it has just undergone an extensive mechanical freshening with new clutch, brakes, fuel tank and system freshened, as well as the Bijur lubrication system at a total cost of approximately $25,000. It would make a wonderful driver and show piece as it is with its incredible amount of original content, or one could take it to the next level and make it a true showpiece. There are few Rolls-Royces in existence that can claim such provenance, documented history, and state of preservation such as this one. It is truly one of the most famous and most photographed of all time, and it is with great pleasure that we offer it for your review. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.
