The 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom I was the last of the New Phantom series, which was already being phased out by the newer Phantom II models. It was the last of the models that defined luxury and style in the Roaring Twenties, and continued to carry its success through the beginning of the Great Depression. The Phantom I was built with a 7,668 cc inline-six engine that was capable of reaching 90 mph. British versions of this classic car came with a four-speed manual transmission, while American versions of this vehicle were equipped with a three-speed model. Despite the superficial differences between the two Phantoms, both cars were built with same superior craftsmanship that had become synonymous with the name Rolls-Royce. Additionally, the ’31 Phantom I was also one of the most powerful cars on the road at the time, and can still operate on modern roads and highways without any major problems.
Looking to purchase a classic Rolls Royce?
Before you buy a Phantom I, have a professional who is knowledgeable of Rolls-Royce models to give your prospective cars a proper inspection. This is especially important if you’re interested in buying a specific model, like the 1931 Phantom I. A good inspector can identify the differences in transmissions, or know that front brakes weren’t installed in every version of the American Phantoms, and use this knowledge to help ensure that you get the right car. Furthermore, they can also help you determine the approximate value of any Phantom models for sale, so that you don’t overspend.
