1961 Phantom V James Young PV55
Two door Touring Saloon
The first of only two ever built
An especially elegant creation first supplied to a Mr. Frank J.
Gill of Millbrook, New York on July 9, 1961, this work of art has
enjoyed the stewardship of several noted automobile connoisseurs of
the era including Mr. William Payson of Southport, Connecticut
(1970) Sam Scheer of New York and Palm Beach, Florida (1972), Dr.
Erle Heath of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Miami, Florida (1973)
and Ray Lutgert of Naples, Florida, (1976).
In the late 1980s it was supplied to the noted Mr. B. Laleman of
Gent, Belgium and remained with him until late 2006 when it was
supplied by the noted Swiss dealer Lukas Huni to the Blackhawk
Collection of California for an important collector client. The
extensive 26 years of service files accompany the automobile.
It was acquired by ourselves in 2017 in acceptable order but
cosmetically somewhat weathered. It has since been upgraded and the
mechanical aspects thoroughly prepared to our standards.
This remarkable performer is available for inspection and
demonstration at your convenience.
