On April 21st, the exquisite model built by James Young in 1963 will finally go on sale at Barons Auctions

The reaction comes following a report in the Classic Cars for Sale magazine that details the planned sale of a vintage Rolls-Royce Phantom V that used to belong to the Queen Mother.

On April 21st, the exquisite model built by James Young in 1963 will finally go on sale at Barons Auctions, with many wealthy suitors and collectors already eyeing it as the top prize. Following its display at the legendary Earls Court Motor Show way back in 1963, it is gained a lot of public attention before being transported to the stable of cars owned by Her Majesty’s Mother.

It is instantly recognisable due to the fact it has been customised in a pastel yellow colour and a black roof, while still retaining all of the usual options associated with the Phantom design – air conditioning, a two-way telephone and a decanter and glasses for the passengers to enjoy. It is estimated to be sold for somewhere in the region of £60,000 and £100,000.

A spokesperson for Abbey Rolls Hire, market leaders in classic car hire and Rolls-Royce experts, have released a statement following the article: “The Rolls-Royce Phantom V is one of the most revered designs of cars ever to be made in Britain, and it is no wonder that this unique model is still attracting attention over 50 years after its unveiling.

“As a brand, Rolls-Royce has always been a favourite with the Royal Family due to their consistent commitment to high quality manufacture and design. It is refreshing to see that this commitment to class still holds value within today’s market.”
