It is only a few brands throughout the world of commerce that are singularly synonymous not just with their respective industries, but with unmatched excellence within those industries. This is very much true of the company founded over a hundred years past by pioneers and perfectionists Charles Rolls and Henry Royce. In 1906, these two visionaries set themselves to the work of giving shape to a still very much nascent industry. That their names would one day come to be associated with the very best within that industry? Well that truly is the stuff of legend. And few models manufactured by the company spoke to the principles laid down by its founders as did the 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom V, a brilliant entry which would see an average of just one unit each week produced during its run. This was in keeping with the aim of rendering the 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom V a model for profoundly elite buyers, given that all Rolls Royce models were aimed at the upper-crust.
Modeled functionally upon the Silver Cloud II, the 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom V was a large 4-door saloon with considerable mass to it. Not that this mass came at the expense of graceful aesthetics and refined performance, both manufacturing hallmarks with which Rolls Royce has yet to part ways. A body-on-frame construction meant highly skilled and well-regarded coachbuilders would contribute to the finished product, just as the General Motors Hydramatic transmission kept the powerful 6.2-liter V-8 functioning cleanly and reliably from one gear to the next. Such a meaty engine also negated any possibility of underpowered performance. No, this unit was strong and sleek in equal measures. It was also owned by famous and powerful figures across the globe, to include several monarchs and at least one prominent musician.
