This Phantom II is painted in dove grey with ebony black wings and has a Burgundy Leather interior. It has a full width sunroof and drop down burr walnut occasional tables in the rear.

Phantom Continentals were designed for fast Continental touring with a top speed of 100 mph, so longer distances could be easily managed. Only 281 Phantom II Continentals were ever built and of these only 10 were long wheel base which gives extra leg room both in the front and the rear.

The 7,668 cc engine has two blocks of three cylinders, with a high compression aluminium cylinder head common to both blocks and a magneto/coil dual ignition system. It has synchromesh on the top three gears and a twenty-eight gallon petrol tank which is very useful at an average of 10 mpg!

Continentals necessarily wealthy owners included such famous names as Sir Malcolm Campbell, Prince Ali Khan, the Prince of Nepal, Lionel de Rothschild, and Noel Coward. This one was
ordered new, at a cost of 2,640, by Sir George Macpherson-Grant 5th Baronet of Ballindaloch and owner of Grants Whisky.

It was imported back to the UK in 2012 from a museum in Indiana and has now been restored to its former glory at a cost in excess of 100,000 and is now available for your wedding!
