The legend that was to become Rolls Royce was founded in May 1904 when a deal was struck between Frederick Henry Royce and Charles Stewart Rolls. Shortly after the first Rolls Royce motor car, the Rolls-Royce 10hp, was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in December 1904. It was agreed that Rolls Royce would initially manufacture four different models being a two cylinder 10hp model, a three cylinder 15hp model, a four cylinder 20hp model and a six cylinder 20hp model. It was immediately apparent that to manufacture their cars Rolls Royce would require a larger factory and the decision was made to establish their headquarters and manufacturing facility on the outskirts of Derby in the east midlands of England. On the 15th March 1906 the company Rolls Royce Limited was formed and during this year Royce had been developing an improved six-cylinder model with more power than the 30hp. Initially designated the 40/50hp, this was the company’s first all-new model that was also to become known as the Silver Ghost. Introduced in 1907, the 40/50hp or Silver Ghost remained in production until 1926. Originally powered by a 7,036cc six-cylinder engine, this was increased to 7,428cc in 1909 and following rave reviews was designated by the English car magazine Autocar as ‘the best car in the world’. Like all car manufacturers Rolls Royce was impacted by the First World War, however, post war the company made a strategic decision to manufacture a cheaper smaller car, enter the Rolls Royce 20hp. This model was a success and produced alongside the Silver Ghost and its successor the Phantom ensuring the Rolls Royce motor car company would survive and prosper. In 1931 Rolls Royce acquired the Bentley motor car company. The Silver Ghost was an outstanding success and unbelievably a total of 7874 cars were produced from 1907 to 1926 and it is understood that some 200 cars were sold new in Australia. A hard act to follow indeed, enter in 1925 the Rolls Royce ‘New Phantom’ known later as the Phantom 1. Although using the same chassis as the Silver Ghost the Phantom featured a new 7668 cc six cylinder engine. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for a sale a fabulous and incredibly original 1925 Rolls Royce ‘New Phantom’ or Phantom 1 bodied by Martin & King. The car goes by the name of ‘Rosie’ and she is chassis number 78MC with engine number AY15. The factory build sheets confirm the car is ‘matching numbers’. The car is a ‘long chassis’ and the build sheets note the car as off-test in July 1925. The cars was ordered new with brass fittings, including the radiator shutters. The coachwork was by Windovers and the build sheets note the body type as an open tourer. The car sold through Dalgety to Sol Green a well-known book maker, financier and philanthropist in Melbourne, Australia in August 1925. Green obviously had a like for brass fittings on his Rolls Royces motor cars as his 1921 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, a car previously sold by Oldtimer Australia, was also ordered that way. The car is well documented in the book Rolls Royce and Bentley in the Sunburnt Country by Tom Clarke & David Neely. Following is the history as described in the book: 78MC – engine AY15, long chassis , off test July 1925, brass fittings, Windovers allweather, possibly with California top (body no.5168, Aug. 1925), Dunlop artillery wheels, via Dalgety and All Bristish to Sol Green (bookmaker and financier), St Kilda, Melbourne, Feb. 1926 reg’d VIC-22-766, VIC-26-635. Bumpers, levers, hubnuts and interior fittings goldplated. Rebodied as Martin & King saloon ca 1933 for Green (L. Dalton, Rolls-Royce: the Derby Phantoms, 1991, p.33); Mr Baker, ‘Greengables’, East Malvern, Melb., late 1930’s reg’d VIC-197-663 Oct. 1936, VIC-214 Jan. 1939; to Mr Baker’s son Arthur Baker reg’d VIC-HE-432, VIC-SK-762 Oct. 1950; Harold H. Paynting, Vic., 1960s, reg’d VIC-JYK-800 Mar. 1968; in Mansfield. The most recent and fourth owner acquired the car off Paynting (the author of the David Flood series of books) in 1989. During his ownership the engine was rebuilt by McDermotts in the mid 1990’s. The car is estimated to have travelled some 5,000 miles since. The charm of this car is its originality. Apart being re-bodied in c1933 the car is essentially original and it looks to have original paint and trim, which whilst showing some age and patina are remarkably well kept. As they say the devil is in the detail and the original Bosch car radio (which works!), hat rack, blinds, pull out rear seats and table are all just a fabulous addition to the car. The car has been a regular attendee on an annual classic car rally through country Victoria over the last twenty years where it has always performed impeccably. Today the car starts relatively easily and once warm settles into a clinically smooth ‘Rolls Royce’ idle. The engine pulls strongly and car cruises effortlessly on the highway. On the road the car drives really well and performs as it should. ‘Rosie’ is accompanied by the original owner’s manual, parts book (copy), service instructions (printed on very fine carbon type paper), Rolls Royce build sheets, receipts for the engine work completed by McDermotts, some interesting Sol Green memorabilia as well as general Rolls Royce memorabilia. There is also a Rolls Royce tool kit. A unique opportunity.

The Peugeot 302 was a mid-weight saloon introduced to the world at the 1936 Paris Motor Show. Effectively a shorter, smaller engined version of the 402, which was launched a year earlier. The aerodynamic styling of the larger 402 was enthusiastically received by the market, but it was half a class larger than the market leader, Citroën’s Traction Avant, which had in many ways rewritten the rule book when launched in 1934. Citroen was one of the first to use the same platform to create different models, and in the late 30’s they supplied the Avant in a range of different engine sizes and wheelbase lengths. Peugeot’s 302 could compete more directly with the Citroën, and was better placed to cope with the economic aftermath the 1929 financial collapse. Tightening of belts hinted a future for mid-sized saloons, but by the time the 302 was actually launched the country was in a state of industrial turmoil and heightened political uncertainty; as a consequence production amounted to only 25,083 units and ended 18 months after release. This particular example underwent restoration around 2009 and has been maintained in perfect condition. Priced well below replacement cost buyers will need to allow for shipping and arrival charges.
